About Like Sew Amazing

Like Sew Amazing is an independent fabric shop and sewing school in Bristol. They specialise in high-quality dressmaking fabrics and run regular craft classes for the sewing community.

Walk through their doors and discover a range of beautiful fabrics - from colourful cottons, to cosy jerseys and sturdy denim - all bringing you one step closer to your very own handmade wardrobe.

Owner Sarah opened up shop after sewing in her spare time for over 30 years. As a dressmaker, Sarah was disappointed by the lack of good quality and affordable fabrics out there for seamstresses. Like Sew Amazing was a way of filling that gap in the market. Now her hobby has turned into her dream job!
