About Crafty Girl Maria

Online Haberdashery and fabric shop in Horley, Surrey

How it all started

I had dreamt of having my own sewing shop for quite some time, and notice how difficult it was to find fabric locally. I then decided to take the plunge and open my own store, with the aim to offer great choice of good quality and affordable fabrics and haberdashery goods, focusing on the kind of service you would expect from your local fabric store.

  • Our team

    Crafty Girl Maria is run from my home in Horley, Surrey (in the UK). I have a small team of 2, Lorraine and Julie, who help manage the orders. Lorraine is a lover of all things crafty and runs her own local craft groups in aid of the Alzheimer's Association.

  • Our ethos

    Sewing and crafting should be fun, affordable and made using quality materials.

    We seek out a wide range of colourful modern and affordable fabrics, as well as offering a good range of the basic essentials. It is pointless buying something cheap that doesn't last, we seek out affordable quality products.

  • Cheap fat quarter bundles

    It's great to share!

    I share my latest makes, products and special offers on social media. We also love to see your makes, as we often wonder what you are making when we are packing. So please don't forget to share with @craftygirlmaria and follow us on Instagram or Facebook.

  • We love our planet and do what we can for the environment. All the packaging is recycled and/or recyclable.

    We also reuse as much packaging as we can, so you might receive your gorgeous goodies in reused packaging.

  • Organic cotton double gauze fabric

    GOTS certificated fabrics

    GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

    It not only means that you can be confident the fibres are organic and free of harmful chemicals, but also that their production has passed the requirements concerning working and social conditions that are equivalent to those of leading social sustainability standards. 

    We continue to seek out as many
    GOTS fabrics from our suppliers.
