Come and join us for our Autumn Open Day. It’s going to be great fun, with loads of other like-minded sewists you can chat to about your favourite fabrics and patterns for the winter… ‘til you’re blue in the face!! And all the tea you can drink and of course cake and sandwiches. 🥪🍰🍩☕

Some of the fabrics available on the day aren’t even in the online shop yet. Be the first to get your hands on them.
There’ll be a 10% discount off everything and some other really special offers, but you have to be here to avail of them. Get here early before they’re all gone.
Annnnnnd if that’s not enough, we’re having another raffle. There’ll be vouchers and sewing kits and other goodies to win just by turning up!
So join us in DressFabrics HQ (near Kells) and Layer up for Autumn!!
The theme for this open day is to Layer up for Autumn. Wear your snuggly sweatshirts or dresses with tights, leggings or jeans and boots. The Autumn/Winter collection has everything you need need to whip up something new for the colder months ahead, did I mention there’ll be 10% of everything on the day?!
