Welcome to our online fabric store.
I am Andrea. I am a sewing and fabric addict based in Co Galway in the West of Ireland! I eat, sleep and breathe sewing! Sewing has always been a huge part of my life, having started at a young age taught by my mom and my grandmother. Throughout my teenage years and into my 20s I made almost all of my own clothes, much preferring a visit to the fabric shop than the clothes shops my friends loved. I enjoyed creating my own designs and styles and 'takes' on highstreet clothes, never very flamboyant but 'my own style'. I took a break from sewing for a few years mostly due to not being able to source the fabric I wanted but I re-ignited my love for dressmaking in 2018 and I am obsessed again.
Beyondthepinkdoor started as a hobby with my youtube channel. As 2020 progressed I realised that my business in making Irish dance costumes was going to put on hold for a while longer so I took the big leap of faith and expanded my hobby into what is now my lovely online fabric shop. I am joined by my wonderful daughter Cerys who is a great support when I am choosing fabrics, looking for new products and of course the very important IT help. Cerys is also a keen sewer who often joins me for a sewing session on her sewing machine which she bought for herself when she was 8 years old. I am very lucky that she shares my love for sewing. I am a very proud mammy .
In our shop we stock fabrics in colours, designs and most importantly the quality we love. Our motto is that we will not sell any fabric that we would not be happy to use ourselves. We are very committed to offering as personal a service as possible and always encourage our lovely customers to email us with any questions regarding fabrics or sewing help and we try to always help in the best way we can.
We started our Sunday Youtube Live sessions in October as a way of connecting with fellow fabric fanatics . In our 'Lives' we chat sewing and show our fabrics 'in action', making patterns suggestions as we go , in what has been often described as an almost virtual shopping trip.. Our sewing chat is so much fun and the subjects we chat about vary from minute to minute and from week to week. Please join us on Sundays at 7GMT , we promise an hour of fabric entertainment.
Our online fabric shop is based in Ireland and we ship worldwide. We are constantly striving to add more countries to our shipping zones.
Thank you for reading
