    After 12 years of running Simply Handmade, Debbi is taking early retirement at the end of March 2024.

    Our order book is now full, so we are unable to assist you with your curtains, soft furnishings or bridal/prom dress alterations.

    We will continue to sell roll end fabrics until the Spring 2024 at reduced prices so hurry, hurry, hurry to snap up a bargain!  Click here to be taken directly to this page Fabric Sales – Simply Handmade


    Doing our bit for the NHS!

    Doing our bit for the NHS!

    Naturally the news of the Covid-19 virus affected us and many other businesses, some for the better, some for the worse.  Haven taken a dramatic hit on the number of our regular customers dropping in for Clothing Alterations and Repairs, and certainly not being used to sitting idle, we quickly decided to volunteer our time and thread to make up scrubs for Colchester NHS. 

    Our efforts over the weeks that followed were very well received and we were thanked immensely by our Key Workers. . . . . and it made us feel good helping them too!

    Coronavirus Update

    Coronavirus Update

    Regrettably, we will all be affected in some shape or form regarding the recent Coronavirus outbreak whether in family circumstances or in business.

    As a growing and reputable independent business, your safety and welfare is paramount to us and so we feel that we have to act responsibly and postpone some of our forthcoming workshops. We will be in touch with the affected students by e-mail so if you are booked onto a workshop then please check your inbox and your junk folders for our communications.

    We are closed for everyday business but working from home where we can so please feel free to contact us by e-mail at

    We wish all our customers and their families' well at this difficult time.
