NEW Fabric & Haberdashery Shop opens in Thrapston

This Saturday sees the grand opening of True Wish Fabrics here in Thrapston.

It’s taking shape to be an Aladins Cave of hobbying and haberdashery. On my visit I not only saw various fabrics; cottons, fleece, designer fabrics and more, I also spied a whole dispay of knitting wool.  A remnants box. Plus buttons, lace, embroidery silks plus cotton thread for the sewing machine.

This was my shopping bag

I was informed there is loads still to arrive. If, like me, sewing is one of your hobbies this is the new go-to place.  I struggled to make up my mind what I needed…. and of course you always NEED more fabric!

Everyone who attends the opening and the following week will get a raffle ticket to win a Mega-Mystery Box of fabric!!mystery prize

Date: Saturday April 17th between 10am and 3pm

Place: True Wish Fabrics, 5 Cottingham Way, Thrapton. 

Go past Jon Essam the accountant, and follow the road round to the left, walk down the side of Watsons, with Watsons on your left and business units on your right, True Wish is at the bottom.

Please remember all Covid restrictions, bring your mask and be 2m apart.  If the shop gets too full there will be someone on the door to advise, and let you in accordingly…. there will be drinks and cake both inside and brought to you if you have to wait in the queue.

True Wish Fabrics don’t know how many shoppers and browsers will show up on the day so please be kind and patient in this tough time for new businesses.

Here’s a small selection of what I have seen today……


More Fabrics, fleeces, designer, children’s, also wadding for quilting and iron on facing….  my head is a whirl!
