Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!


We need to re-cover some kitchen chair cushions and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for any locals shops that sell good sturdy, suitable material / fabric. Traditional or more modern patterns, happy to look at anything really.

Many thanks

Hi, I have a length of Ikea fabric that I was intending to do exactly that with. You're welcome to just take it if you're interested?

Raystitch on Essex Road has gorgeous fabrics, but  expensive. Rolls and Rems on Seven Sisters at Holloway is a much cheaper option, with a wide range of different fabrics. Or you could try Walthamstow market which apparently has several fabric stalls - though I've never managed to get there.

A market stall in wood green market through The Mall sells loads of fabrics.

Yes, nice helpful people too.


I would recommend:

  • the Fabric Shop in Wood Green shopping centre; Andy and Christina who run the place are very helpful and friendly.
  • Hayat Textiles on Turnpike Lane do a good variety of fabrics though from the shop window you could mistake it for an Asian clothing shop. Worth a dig around.
  • Across the road from Hayat, I think it's just called 'fabric shop'. You can pick up binding and basic haberdashery from them too. 

Happy sewing :) 

I got brilliant, loud and colourful material from the shops along Walthamstow market.  Look out for the shops that sell lengths of cloth meant for traditional west African clothing.  You need to go for good strong cotton as some of the stuff is more light weight dress fabric.  

I’ve used light weight sari material as curtains by just looping it over a rail. A pair for a tenner!  There are also shops that sell more traditional fabric and you can get some real end of roll bargains.  Bus straight from Turnpike Lane station.

This is not so local, North Finchley but easy enough to get to by car.... but it is a treasure trove of fabric for all sorts of uses.



Thank you all for taking the time to reply with really helpful info. I'm going to go on a little adventure to these places and will no doubt find something perfect. Many thanks again!

The stall in Wood Green is brilliant and they're super helpful.  If you want a bigger choice there's an Aladdin's Cave of a shop on Ridley Road Market, Dalston Mill Fabrics, there's rooms and rooms of stuff - again the guys in there are very helpful
