Paul Johnston | Owner of Fabrics Galore, Battersea London

 

About Fabrics Galore

Our shop on Lavender Hill, Battersea has been around since 1992.  It’s a fun and inspirational shop stocked with all kinds of fabrics – from dressmaking to craft to soft furnishing and more.  We have beautiful cottons and jerseys from the fantastic Liberty’s.  We stock crepes, denims and fleeces perfect for winter.  For the summer, we have gorgeous linens, Liberty art fabrics and cotton lawns.  Children love our novelty prints.  We also have a good range of quilting fabrics for those who love patchwork.

The shop is a place where you pop by and quickly find what you need when you’re after something specific.  However if you’re not in a rush, enjoy a browse through our extensive range.

It’s important to us that our team are just as fun and inspirations as the shop.  Our team are more like a family.  They are friendly and professional.  They really know what they are talking about and have a passion for fabric.  So if you have any questions, just ask them and they’ll be more than ready to help or give advice if needed.

Recently, we’ve seen a shift in the way people shop for fabric so we launched our online site in 2016.  We’ve selected some of our (and your) favourites for you to enjoy.  It doesn’t have everything we offer in the shop.  So if you don’t see what you want online, do get in touch with us or pop by to the shop to see the full range.

About Paul

Fabrics Galore has been run and owned by Paul Johnston for the past 25 years.  He has been in the industry from a young age.  You could say it runs in the family.  The shop takes its name from the shop his grandmother started in Skipton and his father’s shop is still the best place to buy fabric in Bradford.

Having that much experience in the industry means that many of our suppliers go back generations.  The benefits of these long-term relationships are what we pass on to you, both in range and price.  From time to time, we get designer fabrics, including Liberty of London, Alexander Henry and others.

Paul travels far and wide in search of the very best.  You’ll also find him exhibiting at many of the big quilting and fabric shows nationally.  To see which shows events and shows we’ll be at this year, click here.

If there’s anything that you admire, cherish or want to see more of, he’d love to hear from you.
