  • Rags


    Located within Chapel Walk at Crowngate, Rags was established over 25 years ago, providing sewers with reasonably priced dressmaking fabrics.

    A wide range of fabrics are stocked from suitings, satins and linings to our most popular cottons, which can be used in dressmaking, patchwork and crafting.

    Alongside our fabrics we have New Look, Simplicity and McCalls paper patterns with others to order, and a good range of haberdashery and ribbons.

    Dressmaking and sewing in general has seen a rise in popularity over recent years stemming from the recession with the ‘make do a mend’ attitude. Then the TV Programme ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’, which has inspired people to dust off the sewing machine and start sewing. The younger generation are also showing more interest in sewing and are ‘having a go’.

    Whether you are a seasoned ‘sewer’ or just starting out, we’re here to help.
