Established for over 50 years, we have solely traded from our Shrewsbury shop for the past 40 years. Spread over two floors consisting of 8.000 square feet of retail space, we specialise in Bridal, Evening, Fashion, Craft and Furnishing fabrics, we pride ourselves on the vast choice and variety of fabrics in all our departments. Although our preference is for quality fabrics, we also stock clearance lines and remnants,

Add to this, an extremely well stocked haberdashery department including knitting yarns and accessories, plus everything administered by friendly, knowledgeable staff, a visit to Watson & Thornton is destined to become a rewarding pleasure in our "Aladdins Cave"

There is on street parking, we also have wheelchair access in and around our shop.

What our customers say

Looked like a small shop but instead is like a Tardis, reasonably priced, plenty of craft stuff didn’t want to leave and very friendly staff
