SHIPPING DATE & BRISTOL SHOP ALERT: Orders placed on the 30th of November until 7th of December will be posted on the 8th of December. Our 19.00 silk stock drop is back today 1/12. For the Bristol shop, instead of 1/12 opening, we moved it forward to the 9th of December due to illness. We're really sorry about this as we looked forward to meeting everyone. Exhibition dates to be confirmed soon. Thank you so much for your understanding!

Studio Flax

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

In the front shop we stock a wide range of old and new linen threads, small handcraft tools, mid century Scandinavian embroidery prints, interesting fabrics, books and cards. You can say 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 60's linen embroidery threads, new colours of contemporary linen, a large stock of mid century Gutermann silk, Danish Flower thread, natural dyed yarn from France, antique and vintage haberdashery, 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. 

December opening hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 10 - 18. 

December 1st to 5th
Exhibition: textile artist Kate Whitehead
