Today I’m sharing some great sewing shops in Cambridge.
Backstitch is a gorgeous shop, which can be found at Burwash Manor Barns in Barton. It’s full to the brim with haberdashery, yarn and fabric goodness! Being part of 13 independent shops, it’s a lovely place to visit for a day out, especially as there’s a tea shop close by. Backstitch also offers loads of fun classes from crochet to knitting and dressmaking. With free parking and open 7 days a week what’s not to love!
BeeCrafty is based in Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire and is a fabulous craft shop selling fabric, yarn, haberdashery and embroidery threads and tools. It’s wheelchair friendly and has a “Man crèche” for those less crafty to sit with a cuppa while the craft addict browses. What a brilliant idea! They also offer a whole load of workshops and have social days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays where you get to go along with your project, drink tea, eat cake and chat. Sounds pretty perfect to me!
CallyCo is a cute haberdashery and fabric shop based in the heart of Cambridge. It sells a range of beautiful fabrics, kits, patterns, ribbons and trims, gifts and homeware both in their bricks and mortar shop and online too. They also offer a made-to-order service for curtains and blinds. On top of this they run crafty courses as well as offering bespoke workshops for birthday parties and hen-dos!
Sew Creative is the most adorable shop based in the centre of Cambridge just off King Street. Not only do they sell a gorgeous range of fabrics, haberdashery, yarn, tools and kits but they also sell sewing machines and will happily give you a demo and service your machine. Workshops include patchwork, getting to know your overlocker, quilting and curtain making. On Mondays they have a Knit and Natter and on Thursdays, Sew Social. A perfect little hub for creatives!
