Livingstone Textiles is a real, old fashioned fabric shop so why not call in for a browse when you’re nearby? You’ll find us in Bridport, Dorset, off the main street, conveniently beside the Waitrose carpark. Our shop is an historic ropemaking building, with rooms of nooks and crannies filled with gorgeous fabric and much, much more. Come and explore!
All of the Livingstone Textiles team are enthusiastic stitchers and knitters 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 samples you want away to think about.
We love fabric! Livingstone Textiles is a family run fabric, haberdashery and yarn store based in Bridport, Dorset. As 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.
Racks and racks of roll stock, with fabrics for curtains, cushions, upholstery and blinds as well as rooms full of fabric for dressmaking and crafts. Because we stock so much we always offer free snips and samples for you to take home and think about. You can also borrow any of our fabric books and hangers to help you make up you mind.
It’s not just fabric! We also stock all the things you need to finish your project (and much, much more!) you’ll find buttons, zips and ribbons galore as well as trims for every sort of sewing project you can think of, including dressmaking, furnishings and upholstery.
