Our shop on Broadway Market

Welcome to the wonderful world of Fabrications!

Court of Love - Valentine's Show Hearty Cushions Court of love 2005

Since we opened in 2000, the shop has evolved and grown into a creative hub, contributing to the vibrancy of Broadway Market. We are a local independant shop and like to offer our customers a hopefully more enriched shopping experience, taking the time to provide a personal and knowledgable service. We pride ourselves on stocking design led, thought provoking, good quality items. These are either made in house or sourced from the wealth of local creative talent. Not only will you discover something unique but you are also supporting our local economy!

Eco home ware and gifts

Buying recycled, organic, hand made or local can be stylish and fun! Amongst our re used vintage furniture display uncover a range of unique upcycled objects - cushions, pouffes, textile pieces and curiosities designed and made by Barley Massey. Alongside Barley's designs there are also complimentary items by talented designer makers and social enterprise including: Blue Marmalade, Donna Wilson, Emotional Baggage, Fine Cell work, Flights of Fancy, Michelle Mason, Ryan Frank, Tweedmill, Twisted Twee.

Hackney souvenirs and gifts

Whether you live locally or are visiting, this section of the shop is a great place to find a card or gift for all kinds of occasions, or just treat yourself!

Knitting & Crochet: We stock a range of yarns from 4ply to super chunky in a variety of colours and fibres from British brands: King Cole, Sirdar, Cygnet and Twilleys as well as more unusual handspun hanks and fancy yarns made by local spinners Sue Russell and Gigi Matthews. We also collect vintage and end of lines, check out the odd balls boxes! Alongside our colourful 'wall of wool' we also have a selection of accessories including knitting needles, double pointed & circular needles, stitch holders & markers, cable needles, row counters, crochet hooks, pom pom makers, second hand patterns (30's to 90's) as well as a range of gorgeous knitting books, kits and sets which make great gifts.

Sewing: Fabrications is an authorised dealer of domestic Brother sewing machines, overlockers and accessories. If you're thinking of investing in a sewing machine we have a good selection you can try out as well as classes to build your confidence in using a machine. Our 'Provisional Driving' - introduction to using a sewing machine and 'Learner Driver' - progressing your machine sewing skills are very popular. We also stock a handy selection of hand sewing notions, embroidery silks, hoops, binca, care & repair items, ribbons, braids and some quality sewing, pattern cutting books to support you or give as gifts.
