The Timeless Fabrics Shop is moving from opposite The Smugglers Inn, to the centre of Milford on Sea High Street, where Milford Model & Hobbies used to be.
Owner, Claire Deegan will be opening her doors on Tuesday 2nd December, ready for the switching on of the Christmas Lights on the Village Green!
The shop has been refurbished, with new lights and flooring having been fitted, the shop front sign writing is finished and friends and family are currently decorating into the night.
Claire will have some new stock, books and Gift Certificates, ready for Christmas shoppers.
Claire lives in Hordle and this is now her second shop after establishing her business on-line.
Prior, to this Claire was a computer programmer who was taught at a young age to sew, knit, crochet and lace, by her mother & aunts. After redundancy, she returned to college to formalise her sewing skills - pattern cutting and City & Guilds in Lingerie! (This is good, must get my wife down to learn how to create me some special pants!)
Claire is a married mum of 3 children who attend Priestlands School & Brockenhurst College, and at the same time she juggles her husband & two dogs! (Not literally). She is also an enthusiastic tennis player (She claims, more enthusiasm than skill!) playing at Milford Tennis & Squash Club.
Claire is looking for the Timeless Fabrics shop to be a hive of creativity for all abilities. Like her previous shop, there will be a an in-house sewing machine to rent by the hour, a range of patterns, magazines & books available for inspiration and many fabrics, trims and haberdashery to create with.
As well as the shop, Timeless Fabrics will also be running a new programme of workshops to assist anyone who would like to learn new skills and have a bit of fun.
Timeless Fabrics take great care in choosing quality fabrics, trims and patterns, sourcing them from all over the world, to stock our sewing emporium. The stock is regularly updated and keeps up to date with current trends and colours. All orders can be packaged the same day and dispatched swiftly to your door.
Please get in touch if there's anything Claire can help you with, or if there is a particular product you are trying to get hold of. She would love to hear from you.
