About Us

Welcome to the Fabric Guild website.

The Fabric Guild is an American style warehouse club and caters for the genuine enthusiast whether beginner or competition winner. We do not exhibit at trade shows.

Although there are undoubtedly many good quilting shops in the UK, they all stock the same ranges of fabrics and products at pretty much the same prices. The Fabric Guild is different, we opened to provide quilters in Europe and the UK with the sort of shopping experience previously only available in the United States. We offer the largest selection of quilting fabrics and sewing craft supplies this side of the Atlantic. Our prices for the latest fabric ‘releases’ are broadly the same as you would pay in an American shop, however we have extensive ranges of clearance fabrics at £3/yd or less.

We are a family business committed to providing a high level of professional service and competence. A feature of the Fabric Guild is the relaxed friendly atmosphere, with expert help and advice being available if needed otherwise you have complete freedom to roam and touch! You can even get your sick sewing machine treated! Mr Graham Cresswell of ‘Cresswell Sewing Machines’ is on hand for servicing and repairs and very competitive prices for new machines. (Fridays 10am-2pm and Sundays 9.30am-12.30pm)

Because we trade on a non-retail Industrial Estate we are obliged to operate a membership scheme.
Lifetime membership for the Fabric Guild is £5. Membership entitles you to a special bonus voucher (worth approx £1.25) for every £25 you spend – these vouchers can then be swapped directly for things like scissors and cutting equipment. YOU CAN JOIN ON YOUR FIRST VISIT.
Coffee and biscuits are available in a large seating area (where incidentally husbands can be dumped with a newspaper). Please feel free to bring your lunch in with you.


We are open to all customers Thursdays and Fridays 10.00am – 3.30pm and Sundays 8.30am – 1.00pm.

Coach parties are welcome on Thursday’s 10.00am – 2.30pm by prior appointment. (You only need to book in advance if you are visiting with a large group)


Online orders are usually processed (picked and cut) within 7 working days but please note we are closed Mondays. In busy periods there may be a longer processing time. As we do not offer an express service if you need your order urgently or by a specific date please get in touch by email or phone. Orders are posted via Royal Mail or myHermes depending on the weight of the parcel. Please note we are no longer taking order additions.

Shipping costs are automatically calculated at checkout, orders over £50 will receive free shipping (free shipping covers 1 parcel weighing up to 15kg)

The website is not setup to receive international orders, if you would like to place an order to be sent outside of the UK please email info@fabricguild.co.uk with you order, quantities and address and we will come back to you with the shipping cost.

Membership is not required to use our online shop.
