On Thursday 12 April, 2018 we will be hosting another Open Evening at Fabrix, Lancaster. This will be our third open evening event and judging by our previous ones, we can expect to see lots of our regular customers plus a few new ones!
There will be some exclusive special offers and great prizes to be won in our free raffle.
2018 is the year that celebrates 30 years of trading for Fabrix, so please come along and join us for the Fabrix, Lancaster Spring Open Evening!
While there I, along with a handful of other fabric shop owners from the UK, was given a tour of the art department and we saw how they print small runs of fabric designs on their digital printer. We were also shown a fabulous archive book where designs dated back to the 1800s.
This great little museum describes the rich textile history of the town. During WW2 Germany was unable to source raw cotton and so Nordhorn reinvented itself as a centre of manufacturer of viscose – now I didn’t know that before the trip!
I had a quick rush around the museum and I took lots of pics. What a fabulous resource for German fashion and textile students! There is a dressing-up room, a book with fabric samples from the 1950s and lots of clothing and fashion exhibits and samples on display.
Nino was a famous fashion brand created in Nordhorn and there are lots of examples of the label’s clothing from the 1950s through to the 1970s. Diana Rigg, who played Emma Peel in The Avengers, modeled for the brand and she features heavily in the advertising and display material of the time.
What an exciting visit. I bought plenty of lovely Autumn stock for Fabrix customers to enjoy! So, next you come in be sure to have a look at the beautiful selection from Hemmers.
It’s August SALE time and we have loads of goodies and bargains on offer in the Fabrix Lancaster shop!

We have chosen an autumnal theme using some lovely seasonal fabrics and colours to bring out the best of this time of year.
I love the beetle print on this asymmetric top (pictured right). It’s a cotton & elastane jersey from John Louden (150cms wide, £13.50 metre). I’ve made this particular top a few times and it’s a Newlook pattern, 6415.
The skirt in this picture (left) s made from a Newlook pattern again, 6418. Once more, it’s got an asymmetric hemline and drapes nicely in the viscose print used. This is another John Louden fabric, available in 2 colourways (see below) and is 140cms wide/55″ and £7.99 metre.
The cardigan with the viscose skirt is knitted in a Sirdar Harrap Tweed chunky (pattern 7853). This is a new yarn from Sirdar and follows on from the success of their Harrap Tweed DK that was launched last year. Incidentally, they’ve added some lovely new colours to the DK range for this year.
You may notice that I’ve added a cheeky little piece of the beetle print jersey into the front yoke of this ponte roma dress here, it toned so well with the teal colour. Again, I’ve used a Newlook pattern, 6429. We carry a selection of ponte roma jerseys, some are pictured below, and they start at around £8.99 (150 cms/ 60″ wide).
I hope you enjoy, and you find some inspiration, from the selection we’ve made for September. I’m thinking of making some jackets and coats for the October window to show off some of our beautiful new wool blend suitings. I’ve selected the patterns already, just got to start them now!
We do not have online sales at the moment but we are always happy for you to ring or email us and we can take a card transaction over the phone.
Pictured are some of the featured fabrics in closer detail showing some of the colour ranges available.
