The Fabric Loft is a small business based in Oxfordshire, England run by Nicola Rutterford.
The Fabric Loft has been in business since April 2010, when it was created by Lizzet who had always dreamt of working in a nice place surrounded by beautiful things. The website that she created, and the fabric in her home, was the embodiment of those dreams as a virtual shop.
I met Lizzet in 2011 and we became friends, with a shared love of colour and creativity, coffee and cake. We shared delight in colourful fabrics and frustration at yarn tangles. In 2012, Lizzet left the UK to follow her husband's adventures around the world and the business changed hands. It became my responsibility to nurture The Fabric Loft and look after it as it grew. Lizzet is back in the UK now and creating beautiful spaces with her interior design business, House of Rowan. I've named the little girl in the logo "Lizzy" to remind me of my beautiful friend.
So here I am today in 2020, with a new website to take The Fabric Loft forward. The dreams are the same: to sell beautiful fabric for sewists and crafters to make beautiful things.
I hope to provide you with fashionable, high quality, designer fabrics and patterns with a friendly and helpful service.
I believe that being an online retailer will allow us to reach more creative crafters and designers, wherever in the world you may be.
Let me know if there is any designer, collection or product that you want us to stock, or why not send us a picture of your latest creation.
I'd love to hear from you!
