We sell thread from Guterman and haberdashery from Prym, including sewing-machine needles, hand needles and lots of other useful implements, such as our hand-turned seam rippers made here in New Mills.

We stock some of the market-leading paper patterns including Tilly and the Buttons, Merchant and Mills, Sew Me Something. We provide patterns which cater for absolute beginners through to the more experienced seamstress.

I want to help others to find the joy in textiles and sewing. We offer classes for everybody from eight years and up, from 'never sewn a stitch' to more experienced sewists. Classes range from basic bag and dressmaking to jeans and tailoring.

Owner Linda

Hi, I'm Linda!

I'm the face behind Rubies Rags. I've been sewing for around 40 years and finally got the chance to live my dream and open my own fabric shop!

I'm a passionate dressmaker and I love to provide people with the quality materials, tools, knowledge and inspiration to make their own clothes.
