myfabrics.co.uk wishes you a merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from the myfabrics.co.uk Dear customers,

We have enjoyed a terrific 2015 thanks to our association with you, and we would like to say: THANK YOU! It is wonderful to constantly develop and conceive new products, ideas and DIY projects for you.

We now have close to 200 employees working with us to offer you this selection of products, among other things. This year, we included over 2,000 new fabrics in our range – quite apart from expanding our range of sewing accessories, sewing packages and wool.

To our great delight, our Tula Style collection – poplin fabrics with fashionable designs and patterns, all produced in-house – has captured the mood of the times. It was only recently that we presented Tula Kids to you: The most recent member of the Tula family is not only created and produced in-house; it is also a true organic fabric that has obtained GOTS certification. Over the coming months, the other Tula fabrics will also gradually be switched over so as to constitute GOTS products. We will also start to produce organic jersey variants. We hope that you will also use them to make some enchanting items. Perhaps you’ll show us what you’ve created?

Anyone who’s not sewing at present is perhaps knitting, crafting or crocheting – or working on embroidery projects? We now offer products for all these lovely needle-and-thread-based hobbies, and are constantly expanding this range. Ideally, click on the “Shop” section and keep dropping by; you can look forward to a host of new items and deals in 2016!

And now we’d like to wish you all a merry Christmas, an enjoyable festive season and a wonderful start to a healthy and happy New Year 2016!

With warm regards,

Melf Haack & Niels Nüssler

Sylvia from Accounts recommends wool. She is a sewing enthusiast herself and keep surprising us with her new pullovers and elaborately knitted cardigans. That’s why she says, “Wool is an absolute must as a present!” So browse our wide range of wool, with branded yarns from the houses of Schachenmayr, Lamana and Rellana and find the wool that you like. Or use a knitting package to create a piece yourself and then present it as a gift! Of course, you’ll find we also stock wool accessories.

Scissors certainly seem insignificant, but anyone who has used a good pair of fabric shears for tailoring would never again use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut fabric! So if you want to make an amateur tailor happy, give her a good pair of fabric shears for Christmas! They will be appreciated for a long time to come and the person receiving them will stay happy for years!
