2018 is drawing to a close – it has been a FANTASTIC year here at 1st For Fabrics.

Since the launch of our website in January, we have been able to connect with more and more customers from around the UK (and indeed, the world!), and we have stocked our shelves with new and exciting ranges of fabrics and independent sewing patterns.

Launching the website has been a huge learning curve and we’d like to extend our thanks to you for your patience while we found our feet, for your feedback and for your reactions to our products and services. And to anyone who has placed an order, recommended us or even dropped in for a look – THANK YOU.

Christmas is a time of year where we have always managed to take a small break (as a family-run small business, it can be tricky to find down-time!), please see below for our shop opening times over the festive period and last posting dates for online orders:


The last day to order for pre-Christmas deliver is: Wednesday 19th December 2018.
Any orders placed after this date will be cut, packed and shipped in the first week of the New Year.


The shop will close at 5pm on Friday 21st December 2018 and re-open again at 10am on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.


We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2019.


The 1st For Fabrics Team.
