Welcome to a Crafter’s walk around Wallingford. Within the space of a few hundred yards you will find a selection of unique shops catering to your crafting needs. All offering advice, inspiration and temptation at every turn and a variety of classes are on offer at each shop.
The Oxfordshire town of Wallingford is full of independently owned shops including more than its fair share of craft shops each with knowledgeable staff and a warm welcoming atmosphere.We know that most of you are familiar with us at Village Fabrics but just in case you’re not here is a quick reminder of the variety of classes and social groups we have on offer at St Leonard’s Square.
We offer a wide range of quality patchwork fabrics, classes and unique kits. We have two classrooms and a permanent Christmas room always well stocked with seasonal fabrics, panels and advent calendars. We design our own kits including bags, quilts, cushions, wall-hangings and Block of the Month programmes. We also sell Husqvarna sewing machines, haberdashery, Simplicity dress patterns, specialist quilting accessories, magazines, books, threads and waddings. Our friendly knowledgeable staff will be happy to advise on designs and colour choices for your unique project. Join us for patchwork & quilting classes. Or bring a group along and we can offer free demos, talks, short classes and refreshments. There is also plenty of chat with a variety of social groups meeting regularly.
