Our Story

Pretty Fabrics and Trims is a mother (Penny) and daughter (Sarah) team. We both have a passion for fabric and some, (our ever supportive husbands) may say a slight addiction to it! As crafters and fabric lovers, we know there is nothing more fabulous than opening a delicious package of beautiful fabric and trims and even now we still gasp and giggle in delight!

Sewing is in our blood and the skills have been passed down from generation to generation, Great Nanny Halliday was a tailoress in the 1920's, Nanny Flo made clothes for her daughters and loved nothing better than creating an evening gown for the ballroom on a Friday night. Penny has always made clothes and home furnishings and Sarah followed suit and in 2010 set up Little Kitten Homemade, right here on Etsy for Bunting, Banners and Pretty Things and more recently Sarah Edgar Designs, where she creates 'vintage with a modern twist' embroidery patterns and felt craft kits.

Pretty Fabrics and Trims was established in early 2012 with a simple Ethos...why have to purchase large quantities when you only need a little, we believe you should be able to choose just the right amount for your project, which is why we offer our pretty fabric and trims in a variety of sizes and amounts. With this is mind, you can choose from Fat Quarters, Half Metres or Metreage and for those smaller projects our much loved 'Small' and 'Mini' pieces.

Your happiness is of upmost importance to us, our family motto is "treat as you would like to be treated" which when combined with good old fashioned customer service, means that we aim for 100% satisfaction at all times. We value your feedback and welcome it always.

Finally, to be first to hear of new products and special offers, please do pop over to our blog where you can sign up to receive our monthly(ish) newsletter, 'The Crafty Rag' . Whilst there, you will also find our series of free 'Make it' projects and inspirational colour mood boards.

Thank you for taking time to read!

Our very best wishes,

Penny and Sarah xo
