Studio Flax Contact / Opening Hours / Wholesale

Our studio is at 10 Christmas Steps, Bristol, UK.
We work in the backrooms of a gorgeous old building on historical steps at the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter

We collect colours, textures and the odd, weird and wonderful. Our stock is constantly changing, both with seasons and with the materials we find. 

We currently have a great new stock of 60s linen embroidery threads, mid century Gutermann silk, natural dyed yarn from France, antique and vintage haberdashery. We also stock excellent post- and notecards from Fotofolio, The Pattern Book and our popular Treasure Boxes which are collections of different fine threads in vintage linen thread boxes.  

We are working in the busy studio upstairs most days. Please send an email if you would like to come by and we will do our best to make time.  

June/July opening hours:
Saturday 12-5PM
By appointment
Ring the bell sign will be visible for days we have time for spontaneous visits!
