Our Patterned Hand, much loved fabric and haberdashery shop, has closed.
Our Patterned opened on 1st May 2010, inspiring and supplying sewers with a shop of unusual and classic textiles, handy haberdashery, the best of the books, cool kits and buttons like nowhere else. We were passionate about giving lots of encouragement and sewing advice to anyone who came to the shop, offering also regular sewing classes in our workspace downstairs.
Although loved and well used by both locals and visitors from afar, sadly, the staggering increase in the cost of overheads, meant that we had to make the very tough decision to finish our work here. After 3 ½ years of trading on the famously vibrant Broadway Market, in Hackney, east London, Our Patterned Hand closed it's doors on 30th November 2013.
Thank you so much, to all of you who supported the shop, whether popping in just to admire and stroke beautiful fabrics, coming in to buy a single button to replace one missing on your cardi, or visiting numerous times every week to say hello again and stock up on more supplies for more sewing. We so absolutely enjoyed serving you all. You were definately the best part of the job. Especially, we are very proud of those of you whose flame of passion for sewing we ignited. We hope that you'll be happy, continuing to practice and expand your skills along your sewing journey.
