Fabrications is a friendly Hackney hub of ideas. Part gift shop, part haberdashery, part learning centre, anything could happen after a trip to this place. Barley loves her local community, most of her wares being made by local people. Her knitting and crochet classes are big and friendly, with cups of tea, and her cat Tommy joins in the fun.
Barley is a weaver, with a passion for recycling. For us knitters she stocks Sirdar, handspun and wooden needles by Sue Russel, as well as books and kits. We love Barley because she listens and if she can't help with what you need she'll send you to someone who can.
Fabrications was there back in the days before Broadway market was fashionable - it's a solid presence we are most grateful for.
