Goldhawk Road, London
Our popular fabric shops tour is back! We'll help you navigate the best shops in Goldhawk road and Shepherd's Bush market and demystify the fabric shopping experience.
*Get a free place when you book onto our Follow a Pattern workshop* We are based just 5 minutes away at the West 12 Centre in Shepherd's Bush where we hold sewing and craft workshops.
After 10 years of sewing, I keep coming back to Goldhawk Road as it's the best value for money and there is so much variety. But with so many shops to choose from and with most piled floor to ceiling with fabrics, it can all be a bit overwhelming, especially if you're relatively new to sewing. We've arranged this visit help you find your way around without having a melt down. You'll be taken on a tour of Shepherd's Bush Market as well the shops on Goldhawk road, learn about how to select your fabric, know what to look out for, and ask about. Plus we'll let you in our favourites shops and stalls and how to find the best bargains.
Plan for the morning:
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the start time to ensure we begin on time. We will meet outside Goldhawk road Tube station (under the bridge) and begin promptly at 10.30am. We will begin with a few of the best shops along Goldhawk road and what they have to offer before heading into the market to explore the fabric and haberdashery stalls and what bargains can be found.
For the last half an hour, you will split off into small groups (depending on numbers) to browse further. You'll be given my phone number just incase and I'll be on hand to answer any questions or give advice where I can. The visit will end at 12.30 where you will have the option to join the group for a cuppa (not included) and a chat about what we've found and to exchange tips. You're then free to brave the shops again with your new found confidence and knowledge, or head home for a rest if you're all shopped out.
Tickets are non-refundable, once booked however, you may send someone else in your place. We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule in unforeseen circumstances (such as illness.) On this rare occasion, you will be given the option of a full refund or to rebook on another date.
