Unravel @ Denby Dale

As a quilter and dressmaker and living in the Holmfirth area I have really struggled for years to get material.  Its o.k. getting it on the internet but you really need to see the stuff and colour reproduction is never that good on-line and it is so important in quilting.  So getting fabric is usually a 50 mile round trip for me to get to the nearest shop.  But hey! there is hope on the horizon - with the shop Unravel at Denby Dale....only 12 miles away!

'Unravel' is on the main street in Denby Dale and the the shop is spread over 4 stories.  There is free parking outside the shop and across the road.

The owner - Mary - stocks wool, fabric, haberdashery and patterns,
she has a lovely range in all of these categories, as well as a lovely shop!

On the first floor she has a yummy range of cotton fabric which is particularly suited to quilting - but can be used for dressmaking.

On the same floor she carries a range of Indian textiles which are made up into items - mainly accessories - or fabric that can be bought by the metre.

Then in the basement she has a workroom where I had a 'Quilt-in-a-day' workshop on Saturday - its a fab space!  And - as if that's not enough' - on the 2nd floor she has an exhibition area for textile work.  This is the website  - 
so check it out and see for yourself!
