Crafty Studio is a fabric shop based in Dublin city. We stock a large amount of dressmaking, quilting and craft fabrics. Our fabric selection is carefully chosen by myself for both quality and diversity. Our stock includes beautiful quality Irish and European Ex-designer and deadstock fabrics, including Irish Linen. We also stock sewing tools, thread, haberdashery and accessories. We aim to price everything we sell fairly, so if we get a good deal so do you!
Crafty Studio, is made up of myself and my husband Fintan. We are both qualified art teachers with a passion for learning and creating. While textiles are my thing, Fintan studies and has a passion for academic drawing and painting.
I have always been creating in some way or another all my life. The daughter to a pattern-maker/ tailoress and a ‘I can make anything’ mechanic, I caught the making bug very early. I grew up surrounded by fabric, watching my Mam sew while I hemmed curtains after school. There were often trips to fabric warehouses that have long since closed up!
Years later all grown up with little people of my own to look after Im doing something similar. Though Im yet to get them to hem anything! I teach Art and Design in a local secondary school, sewing and textiles classes with local community groups. When I’m not teaching, I am in our studio, the Crafty Studio!
While teaching sewing classes students remarked on how difficult it was to find fabric and haberdashery. The local old reliable shops were all closing down. This led Fintan and I to set up Crafty Studio website. We aim to supplying quality materials for a variety for arts and crafts, at a good value price.
Thanks for visiting our website and we hope to see you at our new shop in Glasnevin.
