ClothSpot’s all about fabrics – for clothes that are all about you.

We’re as partial to a high-street fashion bargain as anyone – but we find that doesn’t always fit the bill (or us…). We’re saddened at the loss of fabric shops from our high streets and we miss the heady days of delving through remnant bins and rummaging through rolls to find inspiration for our next Big Idea…

We think there’s room for an online fabric store that can revive that excitement and which is all about your personal style. Here at ClothSpot there’s no need to sift through piles of curtains, sheets and patchwork to find something to suit your mood – we’ve found all the nuggets for you to make your shopping experience as enjoyable and as easy as we can.

ClothSpot offers fabric for work, play and special days alike. We keep a fast-changing and lively selection of choices that reflect the best in current fashion. We also stock a selection of basics for your wardrobe – cottons, lawns, drills, denim, linings – the stuff you can’t get by without, whatever your style.

Our new arrivals appear on Friday evenings so you can browse to your heart’s content over the weekend. ‘Like’ us on Facebook or follow us @ClothSpot on Instagram and Twitter and you’ll get a notification as soon as they’re online.

If it’s on our site, then we’ve got it in stock, ready for same-day shipping (see our Frequently Asked Questions page for details).

Meet the ClothSpot team!

We’re dedicated to bringing you ideas and inspiration aplenty and the very best in customer service. We’re based in the Lincolnshire Fens – home of amazing sunsets, glorious daffodils, tulips, pumpkins and delicious sausages. What’s not to like?

Alice

Alice is the one to blame for all this. Usually to be found leaping from sewing machine to camera, to computer and back again. She loves a good spreadsheet and tries to sit on her hands in the face of luscious offerings from our suppliers.

Outside work
Equally handy with a hammer drill or a chainsaw she has an unfortunate sense of humour and throws dance moves that can empty a dancefloor (into the local A&E). Swims, runs and does yoga as quietly as she can.

Soundtrack
Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club; Kate Bush

Favourite yoga position
Thread-the-needle (no, really!)

 

Judy

Judy is the beating heart of ClothSpot. Accountant-in-chief and head stationer, she also cuts and packs orders with speed and elegance. Fluent in Dutch and Spanish (just in case) and calm in a storm.

Outside work
Judy knits at speed and the fact that she hasn’t starred on Masterchef is their loss. She’s a Scandi-noir aficionado and gets oddly worked up over the latest tech gadget.

Soundtrack
BBC Radio 6, Talking books

Favourite gadget
Bluetooth headphones

 

Kerry

Kerry manages our social media from her ClothSpot outpost in Devon. A combination of rigorous planning and Skype sessions means that she has her finger on the pulse of everything ClothSpot. The words ‘Kerry needs…’ will guarantee action stations in the ClothSpot workroom and we couldn’t be without her objectivity or her knowledge of the sewing community.

Outside ClothSpot
Kerry’s an experienced needlewoman and has been sewing since she was a child – not only garments but quilts too. She’s at home with her keyboard as well – writing projects and features for magazines as well as her own blog: VeryKerryBerry.

Soundtrack
Brazilian bossanova takes Kerry to her happy place!

Favourite sidekick
A Skype session with Kerry usually involves Joni, her King Charles Spaniel – who’s never without an opinion.

Freya

Freya is our snipper-in-chief – she’s the one who makes sure we always have samples to send out on request – as well as snippets of our latest arrivals ready to slip into every order. Our sample rails are safe in her hands. Freya manages to be perpetually cheery and is super-organised – we never ever leave things lying around on her workbench (she does this look…)

Outside work
Freya is a demon on the football field – she actually scores hat-tricks!

Soundtrack
Bad Reputation by Shawn Mendes

Favourite organisational tip
Make a list – then you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything.
