Shop profile: Stitch Up

Our second new addition is the fabulous Stitch Up in Wimbledon Park, just steps away from the Wimbledon Park tube station on the District Line. Sandie, the owner of Stitch Up, started off in the fabric world, and her charming shop is full of delightful fabric, haberdashery and some lovely yarns including Colinette, Malabrigo, and arriving shortly, John Arbon's Knit by Numbers. They also hold classes and workshops for adults and children in crochet, knitting, quilting, sewing and more!
