About Us

Ray Stitch - the most stylish fabric shop in London! Created by Rachel Hart - an avid ‘maker’ of all things and borne out of the desire to find not only good quality fabrics but also the necessary tools and accessories all in one place. The demise of the high street haberdashery shop - traditionally the place where a sewer could spend an enjoyable hour carefully choosing the bits and pieces for a planned project - drove her to create a modern version of the very same.

Rachel set up an online shop in 2008 and moved into shop premises in Islington in 2011. The shop operates over two floors with fabric, haberdashery and sewing patterns upstairs and a sewing school downstairs. Happily, the sewing bug is rapidly spreading and the well-stocked shop is now a mecca for fabric lovers of all kinds - dressmakers, crafters, stylists, interior designers, male and female, young and old - there’s something for everyone.

Ray Stitch is a ‘fabric boutique’ selling a carefully selected and wide range of designer prints, plains, weaves and knits. The range is underpinned by a fully comprehensive range of high quality tools and accessories and a plethora of seductive buttons, ribbons and trims. Committed to a conscious approach to product sourcing, many of the products we sell are organically or sustainably produced.

The shop is run by Rachel, Lisa, Steph and Rosie and is supported by a team of expert sewing teachers who impart their valuable knowledge in the Sewing School. We all love what we do and love being part of the growing vibrant and dynamic sewing community. Come and visit us or get in touch via social media - we want to see and share what you’ve created, that’s what it’s all about!
