See you at The Festival of Quilts! (Stand D63)

Studio Flax / Opening Hours / Wholesale and Contact Email

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. 

 We are currently having a summer break and will return for The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham 18th to 21st of July.
Saturday openings will resume at the end of August, 12-17 as usual.
