Founder, Annie Barker offers classes and supplies for modern knitting, stitching and patchwork in her West Hampstead shop. Her love for products that offer a modern spin on traditional crafts means The Village Haberdashery is the ultimate go-to place for all things craftsy and you won’t be disappointed! There is so much fabric to choose from, as well as a wide selection of organically sourced yarns. Why not take a look and treat yourself to something or perhaps even take up a class in needlework?

Happy New Year! We hope you had a festive Christmas and enjoyed all the food and merriment. If you happened to have bought a copy of Mollie Makes in December, you’ll know we’ve had a little mention on our top seller, Luca Pom Hat Kit! It was certainly a great way of rounding up a very busy first year and we’re super chuffed about the caption, too, paying homage to our designs always makes us smile! =)
