Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market From Rags to Stitches. This creative fabric and yarn emporium was originally founded by our client in 2014 and is very well supported by the local community. The business is now reluctantly coming to the market due to other interests.

Since establishing the business our client has seen month on month growth and now reports a healthy turnover of £96,000. Revenue is derived from the sale of modern quality fabrics, wools, patterns, and haberdashery items to meet the creative needs of sewing enthusiasts in the region.

Our client is a skilled and experienced seamstress and offers friendly tuition classes to clients of all ages from beginners to the more experienced to help renew their sewing skills. The premises have a kitted out classroom as well as the retail side.

The business predominantly offers Patch Work and Quilting, but also has a wide variety of workshops such as dress making and free motion embroidery.

The business also attends Exhibitions, Quilt Shows with Pop Up Shops across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. They are booked in for 5 shows a year, 3 in Harrogate, 1 in Doncaster and 1 in Newark. As well as attending events, the business is also on one of the shopping channels. 

The industry has seen a massive rise in demand due to lockdown. Our client also offers 3 classes a week for upto 24 students, booked on a monthly package which generates regular income. The classes have proven to be extremely popular, especially as many schools sadly no longer teach sewing and our client benefits from much repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

They also has a Block Of The Month (BOM) subcription. Every month for the next 12 months you will receive a box of fabric along with the pattern for that months blocks. 

The shop is beautifully presented throughout with the fabrics clearly displayed, with ample space for the workshops. Our client has completely refitted the premises to a very high standard and the space presents a very relaxed atmosphere.

Advertising is via the business’ informative website www.fromragstostitches.co.uk . Our client has an established e-commerce function, which was launched  in 2014 and has always seen great results, we believe this will take this already expanding business to the next level. People can use the website to book classes etc, and product sales are featured on eBay with 100% feedback rating and also Etsy.

This is a well presented business, with a good client base, ready for a new owner with the same passion and drive as our client to continue this expanding enterprise. Early viewings come highly recommended.
