Order collection 

If you have ordered your fabric for collection, there will be a member of staff on site between 1-5pm Monday to Friday.  You will receive a collection notification when your order is ready to collect.

Finding us

We are a moments walk from the Curve Theatre in Leicester City Centre, easily accessible by bus or train.  Our Studio is in The Makers Yard, 84 Rutland St, LE1 1SB.


There is no parking directly by our studio, but there is street parking in the area near by.  

Please follow this link to Parkopedia for local car parks and rates

There is Blue Badge Parking on Southampton Street.

*Please note*

We used to be able to offer discounted parking in the local NCP car park but we cannot guarantee this now as it is dependent on the Grass cafe in the LCB depot being open and the times for this vary throughout the month. We recommend the Queen Street or Lee Circle Long stay car park for full day events. 


Our studio is fully accessible, while it is on the second floor, there is a lift for customers and we have step free access from the street to our studio.  We also have an accessible toilet on site.

Stay in Leicester

If you are travelling from out of town for a workshop we can recomend good quality and affordable accommodation nearby.

The Premier Inn is close by, next to the train station and in between that and our studio. 

We also recommend Sanctuary Serviced Apartments for modern and convenient 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, minutes walk away from our studio.
