Fabric, Patterns and Haberdashery for Stylish Sewing

Hi, my name is Amy and I'm the owner of The Splendid Stitch!

I learned to sew at the age of 11 and it's been my favourite hobby ever since (over two decades now!).  Over the years, though, I haven't always lived in towns or cities with good fabric shops, and none of the online stores seemed to really meet my needs.  I longed for an online store that focused on current fashion trends, was committed to only selling quality dressmaking fabrics, and offered services that made buying coordinating fabrics and patterns easier. 

In the autumn of 2014, my contract at work ended, and I was faced with finding another full-time job in the same line of work or trying something new.  I opted for the latter. So, the dream became a reality and The Splendid Stitch was born!

Here at The Splendid Stitch, you'll find a carefully-curated selection of fabrics, sewing patterns and haberdashery.  The focus is on fashion, quality and convenience. 


  • Fashion: I have spent a lot of time sourcing quality fabrics and patterns which will allow you to sew current fashion trends. 
  • Quality: I only sell fabrics that I would be happy to sew with myself.  Any fabric that I receive that doesn't happen to meet my quality requirements gets put in my 'Clearance' section.  As for patterns, I only buy patterns that are well-reviewed on PatternReview.com (unless the patterns are new).
  • Convenience: Not everyone has a huge amount of time to sew (I certainly didn't in my previous career!).  If you'd like to spend less time shopping and more time sewing, then you've come to the right place.  I've designed this site to allow you to quickly find matching fabrics, patterns and haberdashery.  Keep your eye out for the 'goes well with' sections on each fabric and pattern product page.

You can read more about our commitment to fashion, quality and convenience in this blog post and in this blog post.  I hope you will enjoy shopping at The Splendid Stitch.  If you have any questions or feedback, I'd love to hear from you!

The Splendid Stitch is based in Glasgow (in the UK).  Our contact details can be found here.  If you phone, don't expect a Glaswegian accent: I'm originally from Canada!
