Needlecraft heaven, Backstitch is a bright and inspiring fabric and haberdashery store opened by Alice Synge in March 2014. The Burwash shop has now become a honeypot for local crafters seeking stylish, modern dressmaking and quilt fabric and quality haberdashery.  A keen sewer herself, Alice stocks only products she would want to use personally, so the selection has been curated to her modern sense of style, and with keen attention to quality. Both the Burwash shop and the online shop are renowned for their excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful advice is always at hand.

Due to lockdown, we are now closed to customers.  Web orders are being posted every weekday by First Class mail.  Click & Collect is available only for customers who are local enough to collect as part of their daily exercise, or if visiting Burwash Manor to purchase essential supplies.  Please note that our staff cannot serve you at the door.  All orders need to be made in advance of arrival.
