Fabrix Lancaster Celebrates 30 Years in Business!

Last Saturday, Fabrix Lancaster celebrated 30 years in business. Located at the same address where we opened in 1988, then under the ownership of founder Terri Sethi, Fabrix has gone on from strength to strength – we are proud to be the premier shop for dressmakers, quilters, crafters and sewers in the North Lancashire and South Cumbria area.

Regular visitors to Fabrix will have noticed a few changes in recent years and we’re committed to keeping our stock fresh for customers old and new while ensuring that we always carry the must-have basics.

One recent innovation, which we will be continuing to develop and improve, is the Fabrix online store. Hopefully this will allow our many customers from further afield to be able to shop with us remotely while providing a service that our local shoppers can use when time doesn’t allow for a personal visit!

We hope to see you soon, either in the shop or ‘virtually’ at our online store and we’d like to say thanks for supporting local independent traders and allowing 30 great years of Fabrix here in Lancaster.

Fabrix July window

We’ve just finished the July window display here at Fabrix.

We chose three patterns from each of our main suppliers and using a range of dressmaking materials from our shop created these little beauties!

The first (above) is Vintage Vogue pattern 9105. This lovely asymmetric fastening dress is made from Broderie Anglaise which I underlined with a polycotton and finished it off with a nice contrasting red daisy button.

Next is a cotton & elastane print shift dress. Fabrix team member Tess made this using the Burda 3477 pattern and chose the fabric from our large range of cotton and elastane prints.

Finally we have a delightful linen/ viscose print shirt dress. A great garment to wear on those lovely warm summer evenings! This pattern is from our McCalls range.

For more seasonal patterns and fabrics, pop into the Fabrix store and see what we have waiting for you!
