About Us

Liz Purkis

store owner

My love of sewing and fabrics started early on in my life. My Mum sewed for us and made all kind of things. on her green Bernina machine. I started to sew at the age of 11 and I instantly loved it. I made myself so many things in my teens and worked with so many different fabrics. I continued to sew for myself and then my children as each came along. In the early 90s I made wedding and bridesmaids dresses and this opened up a new range of fabrics that I hadn't worked with before. Fast forward to 2011 when The Buttonhole came up for sale. I knew I wanted to buy it and be able to make a one stop shop for everything a sewist would want. So here we are, I adore getting new fabrics and the ideas of what people might make from them. So if you need any advice or can't quiet find what you are looking for, just message me and I'll see what I can do.
