Regrettably we have come to the difficult decision to close Thread Bear.
A combination of the failing health of the high street, the uncertainty of Brexit and a small shops’ inability to compete with the low prices on Amazon have all come together to mean that we can no longer survive.

Although due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are uncertain of our actual closing date it will be at some point this year. We are unable to order in items any longer and may run out of things but we will do our best to keep our website up to date.

Thank you for your custom and patience at this time.

Customer Testimonials

Thank you for your amazingly efficient service! Ordered 31st August, received 2nd September. Top quality as always - no excuse to delay projects now. Thanks


Friendly staff each time I've visited and offered to help me with knitting my first project since my mum died I have not been able to finish a project... Will be a regular I'm sure


Haven't visited the shop as it's not local to me but ordered some linen yesterday and it arrived today, packaged beautifully. The young lady on the phone was really helpful and the whole experience was very pleasant. Thank you


Got a sewing machine last September and the staff in here helped me with ideas for Christmas presents I could make. Really pleased that they had clothes patterns too so I could have a go at making a top. I will be back soon! Thanks!


Placed an online order for some specialty threads and had a very positive experience, helpful and friendly. Definitely will use them again!


So much choice and variety of products
