A Material World of Inspiration

Stiches offers a beautiful array of quality fabric at prices that won’t break the bank. 

Our shop is packed to the brim with everything you need to complete your next sewing project.  

From cotton prints and linen-look fabric to pre-cut fat quarter bundles, oil cloth, and more - we work with a range of suppliers to find the very best fabrics at affordable prices. 

We also offer a well-stocked range of haberdashery items, so if you need a new pair of dressmaking scissors, the perfect colour of thread or ribbon and trimmings to add the finishing touch, we can help! 

Particularly popular at the moment are our linen-look fabrics which are great for soft furnishings such as curtains and cushions. And our cotton prints are a perfect option if you want to make facemasks with real personality. 

Quality customer service is at the heart of what we do, so if you need advice with your purchase please ask and we will do our best to help. 

About Us

Whether you are making curtains, cushions, clothing or crafts, at Stitches we have everything you need to complete your project. 

Our shop has been open in Colchester since August 2019, offering a wide selection of quality fabric and haberdashery at affordable prices.  

Owner Clare Handley has a keen eye for beautiful material and a fantastic knowledge of all things haberdashery as her family has worked in this area for more than 50 years. 


Like anyone who has a passion for sewing, we love choosing fabric and we like to think we have most bases covered when it comes to the range we stock. That said, if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, please do ask as we may be able to source it from one of our suppliers. 

We love talking to customers about what they are making and are happy to help if you need advice before starting out on your next project.

Our Shop

Our beautiful shop in the bustling Lanes area of Colchester is like an Aladdin’s cave for fabric lovers!


Although many of our products are available to purchase online, there is nothing quite like searching through rolls of gorgeous prints and feeling the weight and texture of the fabric before you buy. 


Come and browse our exciting range of fabric and haberdashery items, and if we don’t have exactly what you are looking for, please ask, as we may be able to order it in.  

We are open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm.  

Run out of cotton mid-hem? Need some fabric fast? If you are local and are running short on time you can take advantage of our free click and collect service. Just place your order online and it will be ready to collect from our shop in just two hours.
