The Cambridge Fabric Company
Muddy says: it’s hard to come across shops like this these days and The Cambridge Fabric Company brings the fun back into creating beautiful interiors, dressmaking and craft projects. Get creative or alternative get someone else at the shop to do the hard work for you.
Based in the heart of Cambridge this beautiful shop sells interior, dress and quilting fabrics, specialising in cottons and linens as well as stocking a comprehensive range of haberdashery, trims and sewing essentials.
Our collection of fabrics shows off the best in British design and our buy-off-the-roll approach means we give the customer a straight forward way of buying the fabric they require. Our bespoke made to order service makes curtains, lampshades blinds and soft furnishings offering a high quality, hand finished service at affordable prices.
Run by Katie and Sarah, who are passionate about customer service and have a clear vision “The advantage we have as a small independent retailer on today’s high street is our ability to listen to and look after our customers. We are passionate about fabric and design and love to share this passion with our customer. We love what we do and love being part of the growing vibrant and dynamic sewing community”. Supporting Katie and Sarah are a team of expert sewing teachers who impart their valuable knowledge in our workshops.
Come and visit us or get in touch via social media – we want to see and share what you’ve created, that’s what it’s all about!
