We love sewing!

We love fabric! Livingstone Textiles is a family run fabric, haberdashery and yarn store based in Bridport, Dorset. We are an old-fashioned fabric business with the latest designs. We stock a huge range of fabric on the roll at our shop, with even more available to order from samples.

Luckily all of the Livingstone Textiles team are enthusiastic sewers who will be happy to help you make your choice. Whether you want fabric for dressmaking, soft furnishings or an interesting craft project we will talk it over with you, and if you’re still not sure, you can take the samples you want away to think about.

If you love the fabric but would rather we did the sewing, our experienced makers will create beautiful curtains and soft furnishings to your exact specifications and with your chosen fabrics from our range. Always made to measure and hand finished.

A little off the beaten path but a very large selection of fabrics and patterns. Everything from lace to upholstery fabric. Friendly and helpful staff were happy to advise on fabric choice and thread selection. Wife insists we go back again. Car park right outside and a nice cafe nearby.

Excellent company. I ordered net curtain which arrived promptly. The packaging was recycled paper. Inside there was a postcard which was handwritten and it thanked me for my order and said if there were any queries to contact them. I would certainly highly recommend them!

Found this shop whilst on holiday. It's range of fabrics is amazing. Wanted to get fabric for curtains and the staff were really helpful. Chose fabric and their price for making up curtains and posting them to me was really good. Curtains are such good quality. Thank you so much Sophie.
