Patches and Buttons
a modern haberdashery and Fabric shop in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
We opened our doors in October 2009 and haven't looked back
We are a busy little shop on two floors filled with fabrics and trims, buttons and threads, patterns and books, beads and charms, needles and pins, kits and kaboodle! With a good mix of dressmaking and craft fabric there is something for everyone.
We stock Gutermann, Prym, DMC threads, Simplicity patterns and notions, Newlook, Vogue and McCalls, Buttonbag kits etc. Trims from France, Buttons from Italy and Fabric from all over.

Business hours are Tues - Sat 9.30 - 5.00.
However please be aware that I do occasionally have to close unexpectedly. If you are planning a special trip think ahead and ring to avoid disappointment x
