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.
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!
Check out our selection of Fat Quarter bundles also 25 % off!
We have also taken 25% off some of our inspiring yarn collection.
Please note our Easter Opening hours are as follows:
Good Friday (April 14) open 11am till 4pm

Wishing our customers a very happy & creative Easter!
Fabrix Lancaster is hosting its first ever Open Evening!
