Sew Ab Fab fabric shop in Oakham - what a wonderful place

Updated: Jul 16, 2023

Over the weekend I went to visit my best friend who lives just over 3 hours away from me in the town of Oakham near Rutland water but what a perfect way to pair a trip to see her with some fabric fondling (yeah!!)

Sew Ab Fab is located in Oakham in Mill Street, I found out the shop had only been open a week. Its ran by the lovely Caroline and offers a selection of fabric, patterns and haberdashery and sewing workshops and classes.

The space is lovely and set out with the workshop area at the front and the haberdashery and fabric area through the back.

So if your in the area, its definitely worth a visit and the classes look fab with a great range available. With so many local independent shops and business disappearing from our high streets is great to see a new business opening and I wish Caroline all the success with her future, I look forward to visiting again in the future when it's not a flying visit.

Sew Ab Fab also have a podcast which can be found here and a range of video tutorials to help budding sewist develop their sewing skills visit the sew ab fab video tutorial page
