Real reviews from our amazing customers

I haven’t visited this store for over 30 years. What a great place. I could have spent all day in there. Sooo many fabrics on display and at reasonable prices too. If you’re looking for anything in particular just ask any off the staff and they will find it for you. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be visiting this store again on my next visit to Birmingham. 5 star.

We decided to wear 18th-century costumes for our wedding, so needed to find suitable fabric. This shop has the best range, both for quality and variety in Birmingham. We travelled up from Gloucester especially! Here is a photo of the completed garments.

Save your time and your legs…you’ll find exactly what you want in one trip to Fancy Silk Store! There’s every kind of fabric you can think of under one roof, at very reasonable prices. Huge selections for dress making, soft furnishings, tailoring, crafts and general sewing projects. It’s also the only place in Birmingham that I know of which still stocks a full range of sewing patterns.

The staff are friendly, extremely helpful, with a great commitment to customer satisfaction. I recently had a query about a purchase – first time ever with this store – and it was dealt very quickly, easily and courteously. It’s rare to find this level of customer service these days. Many thanks to the management and staff of Fancy Silk Store.

Quite easy to find, near the bullring. Very well organised inside, which made it easy to find the fabric I needed. In terms of variety, they have the biggest selection I have seen in a U.K. Fabric shop. Fabric is reasonably priced, mid-range I’d say, but not overpriced either. Whatever your project, you should find what you are looking for here, very current prints are available, so you can make something which is bang on-trend. With all that in mind, I’d say it’s definitely worth a trip, for the quality and variety.

This is my go to store. I can’t sew, but a dear friend is also a talented dressmaker. As a speaker, I love to be unique and that’s why I love this place. I have had many silk kimono’s made for me that I wear over a plain dress. I’ve had the most incredible gala dinner dress and even get my material for my beach sarongs here. I have been all around the shops, all around the markets, and it is ALWAYS the Fancy Silk Store that delivers exactly what I want.

Many thanks to the kind manager, Mr Rashi for his patience and grace! He was patient and endearing, and treated his customers with respect. Shop itself has anything and everything you want ; it’s good to browse but better to know what you want so you won’t feel too lost πŸ™‚

Went on a day trip to buy dress fabric. We found the shop to be very well stocked but when I started making the garment I realised I hadn’t bought enough fabric. I thought it was a long shot they’d be able to help without me having to return to the store, but after one quick email they were more than happy to post me out some more fabric and only charged me the cost of the fabric even though it must have taken time to locate and wasn’t particularly expensive in the first place. It even arrived within a day of them receiving my request! Fantastic customer service, 10/10 would recommend
