There are many reasons to visit Fabrics at Lincoln, from curtain making to Christmas shopping – or just for inspiration.


he growing giftware selection includes Le Forge homeware, advent dolls and a plethora of quirky cushions – or you can make your own if a particular fabric catches your eye. The layby service is also helpful. Owner Colleen Bennetts provides a curtain-making service with free measure and quotes and professional, creative advice. Q-card is accepted; offering 12 months interest-free credit - so there’s no need to save for stunning new curtains. Busy embellishing new builds with quality window coverings, Colleen says sheers look lovely on double tracks and are invaluable to help shield UV rays. Linen-look sheers are also in vogue. With an eye for detail, quality and design, she selects from a variety of New Zealand fabric houses. There’s everything from English patterns and stripes to retro and romantic designs. The fabulous staff can order fabrics if they are not in stock, and also supply and install tracks and roller blinds. Business is now in full swing, considering the business has only been open since January. “The response so far has been absolutely amazing. I’ve had wonderful support and comments from the Lincoln community,” Colleen says. Supporting the rural sector, and also accepting Farmlands Cards, the business has a stand at the AMP show, selling gifts, fabrics and cushions

– all with a rural theme. Look for the team near the entrance. Visit Fabrics at Lincoln, 3 Gerald Street, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 1.30pm. Phone 325 7400, email or follow the business on Facebook.
