Situated in the heart of Southbourne Grove in sunny Bournemouth, we stock a vast range of haberdashery items for all your sewing and dressmaking needs, from shoulder pads to knicker elastic and everything in between, as well as fabric, trimmings, decorative finishes, embroidery and tapestry threads, hoops and accessories, wool and knitting essentials, dress and knitting patterns, craft kits, fabric dyes, net curtains, curtain track and more.

Our aim is provide you with the inspiration, skills and equipment to create, learn, make and mend … so whether you need something to jazz up an outfit, some ideas for your kids’ fancy dress, some thread to patch your jeans or you want to learn a new skill, we can help you haberdasher-do!

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are open but with slightly reduced hours:
Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm;
Saturday 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Our website is a work-in-progress, as is the online shop. We try to keep our stock quantities up to date, but due to high demand for items such as elastic and fabric, this is proving challenging, so please do bear with us or check with us first whether an item is in stock.

Thanks – Jane & the Haberdasherdo Team
