material / fabric shop

Hi

Strange question for you but can anyone tell me if there are any fabric / material shops in leeds please.

Alternatively, could you tell me how'd I'd find them please!

We'll be staying in leeds city centre.

Many Thanks in advance for any help.

Try Kirkgate Market, there used to be a fabric shop there a few years ago.

Otherwise I'd suggest a trip to Red Brick Mill in Batley where the Skopos shop is now, Saltaire for the House of Fabrics or down into Bradford for Bombay Stores

Can't remember the name but at the back of House of Fraser in Briggate there is a material/fabric shop that has been there for years. If I remember correctly it used to be a favourite shop of Vera from Coronation Street!!

Just done a quick google for the details -

Samuel Taylor

10 Central Rd, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 6DE

0113 245 9737

If you enter House of Fraser on Briggate through the front doors - walk through the store and leave by the back doors then you can see Samuel Taylors just on your right at the other side of Central Road (which is just a small back street)

B&M Fabrics, 36-39, Row E, Kirkgate Market plus there's at least one haberdashery that sells sewing "stuff" and what appears to be every type of button available in the world.

Samuel Taylor's is a great recommendation, it has been there for years and does not just have material, but anything you could want for home sewing, including patterns, linings etc. The Market is very nearby, so you will have a good choice.
