Customer Service

At The Village Haberdashery, we work hard to provide you with products you’ll love and a shopping experience you’ll recommend to a friend. If there is anything we can do to improve our service or selection, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Ordering Fabric

Our fabric is measured metrically and is sold by the quarter metre. If you want a full metre, select four quantities of fabric. Unless you request otherwise, single quantities will be cut as fat quarters. Multiple quantities will be continuously cut with the final quarter metre of any odd-numbered quantity cut as a “skinny” quarter. See the chart below for more clarification.

Buying Scissors

You must be over 18 to buy rotary cutters or scissors. You will be asked to confirm your age at checkout.


We accept Visa and Mastercard via a secure service called CardSave (which means we never hold your credit card details ourselves) or you can pay with PayPal.
All prices shown are inclusive of VAT.

Class policies

How to register for classes

You can sign up for classes on our website, in person at our shop or by calling us at 0207 794 5635. We require full payment at the time of signing up in order to reserve your spot. Spaces are limited, so sign up early! If the class you want to take is full, you may sign up for the waiting list. Customers on the waiting list will be given priority the next time a class is offered.

Class materials

The materials and tools needed for each class varies, so please refer to the course description. Once you register, you’ll receive a list of the supplies you’ll need to bring. You will receive a 10% discount on your class day if you wish to purchase supplies in the shop, however it’s best to plan ahead and arrive early in case it is busy. If you have any questions about what you’ll need to bring, please contact us.

Cancellation policy

We keep class sizes small so everyone gets all the attention they need. For that reason, we offer refunds only if the class is full and someone on the waiting list can take your place. There are no makeups for missed sessions.

The Village Haberdashery requires full enrolment to go forward. If a class is cancelled, you will receive a full refund or a spot the next time a class is offered – your choice.

If an instructor is sick we will either provide a substitute or we will reschedule the class during a time that is convenient for all participants.
