About

Gorgeous natural fabrics and ribbons and unique handmade gifts and personalised presents

FabricandRibbon opened for business on Etsy in 2008. In the early days of its existence, FabricandRibbon progressed rather slowly as our children were small and I spent more time playing with them than working on my shop. Now they are at school and much more independent, FabricandRibbon is growing at a much faster rate and new handmade items and different product ranges are being added all the time.

I've always love sewing, knitting and crochet. From the early days when I would tie scraps of material round my dolls for their new dresses, to being taught to knit by my grandmother when I was about 5 years old, to when I first taught myself to follow a pattern and made a pair of trousers when I was 12 , a total disaster.

I find fabrics, ribbons and all things textile totally fascinating, whether its the colour, texture, weave or the possibilities of what can be made with them. When a student in London, I used to spend hours wandering around the museums and galleries looking at the textiles, paintings and draperies on the statues. There's so much to do, so many things to make and so little time.

Since the children were born, I've spent less time in the galleries and wasted so much time searching for the presents I would like them to have, that I started to make the cushions, aprons, hairbands and everything else for them myself. The sheer joy as a child of having something special with your own name on it is something that lives with you for a long time.

This has grown and now it's not just children's presents and gifts I make, but also beautilful textured and patterned cushions and bags and other items for the home. The best bit about owning a fabric shop as well as making things is that I can buy so much more material and ribbons than I could ever use myself knowing that other people will like to same things as me thus allowing me to develop a whole range of products from a collection of fabrics and ribbons.

When I send a personalised present out, I do wonder about the child whose name I've just embroidered and hope that it will be well treated and the child will love it and keep it for years to come.

I do hope you enjoy the fabrics, ribbons and presents in our shop as much as I have enjoyed finding them and making them.

I hope you enjoy browsing our shop and if there is anything you require you can't find, please contact us as we are here to help and are always introducing new fabrics.
