County Fabrics open doors to public with series of free workshops

Kinross-shire based County Fabrics are encouraging people to unleash their inner interior designer at a series of free creative workshops, taking place at 10am and 1:30pm on Friday 20th May.

The recently refurbished showroom and design library is set to be showcased at a special Open Day, where guests are invited to browse through over 100 display lengths and look for inspiration in over 350 design books. Taking place during the Open Day, those interested in design can enjoy a free design workshop, creating a mood-board and getting some hints and tips for updating décor, as well as receiving a special goodie-bag and a summer discount voucher.

County Fabrics owner, Katie Evans, recently took over the family-run business from her mother, Jane Wallace, who ran the successful business for 30 years. It has grown into one of the UK’s largest independent fabric retailers, set modestly in the Central-Scotland village of Crook of Devon, specialising in selling designer fabric at heavily discounted prices. Katie commented:

“We’re often described as a hidden treasure and many people don’t know where we are so we wanted to open up our showroom for people to come and discover the fantastic things we can offer them. Having recently gone through some refurbishments we’re really looking forward to welcoming customers, both old and new, to browse and enjoy our special one-day sale and over 13,000m of the highest quality fabrics – with a cup of tea of course!

Katie continued:

“Spaces for our workshops are filling up fast so booking is advised. We’re hoping people get a little creative, have some fun and go home with some interior design inspiration.”

County Fabrics offer a vast range of designer fabrics at a heavily discounted price and offer a made to measure, bespoke soft furnishings service, located within an hour of both Glasgow and Edinburgh and half an hour from Perth and Stirling.
