Saying Goodbye to Clapham

Sew Over It Clapham

We have some sad news. Our time at Clapham has come to an end. We will be closing our Clapham shop on 17th August. (Though any classes set to start after this point will still run.)

Thank you to all of you who have visited us there since we opened in 2011. It was where it all began for us and is the springboard for everything we’ve built so far. We will miss it dearly.

This change will allow us to grow in new and exciting ways. Though London is our home, our goal is to spread the sewing love globally. In closing our Clapham shop and focusing more of our resources online, we’ll be able to bring more of you more of what you love, such as online classes, fantastic new paper and PDF patterns, and even more beautiful fabrics.

Our fabulous new store in Islington is going nowhere. We will be increasing the number of classes we run here, extending our classroom area to give you even more space, hosting exciting events and stocking those gorgeous planty shelves with even more fabrics.

To our lovely South London customers, we are so sorry that we are depriving you of your local shop, but we do hope we can tempt you north of the river, and that you will come see us in Islington.

Whilst we prepare for the change, we’ll be reducing our opening hours in Clapham. From Monday 16th July, our opening hours will be:

Monday – CLOSED
Tuesday – 12 – 6
Wednesday – CLOSED (Open for evening classes)
Thursday & Friday – 12 – 6
Sat – 10 – 6
Sun – CLOSED (Open for classes only)

We’ll keep you updated with news as we go, including a big closing down sale we’ll be holding in our last week. We’d love you to pop in before we go!
