The Nest Haberdashery
A treasure trove of low-cost, pre-loved reclaimed sewing supplies in Brisbane.
What’s different about The Nest Haberdashery?
As a community of avid makers, we hate to see things go to waste. Driven by our sustainability ethos, our social enterprise haberdashery was created to be like a resource recovery centre where we could accept donations of preloved sewing supplies.
Exploring our shelves and enjoying the company and advice of our volunteers, feels more like raiding your Grandma’s sewing room than wandering the lifeless aisles of a major retailer.
Our ‘habby’ supplies The Nest workshops and programs and is an invaluable resource of rescued materials for Brisbane’s thrifty crafters, emerging designers and the slow-fashion community.
What treasures you’ll find in-store
We only stock donated goods so you never know what you might find. Our volunteers lovingly sort, clean and organise all of the preloved craft and sewing materials and can help you select something for your next project.
Buttons and zips
We have a full range of haberdashery notions such as zips, hooks, closures, buttons, bra fittings, elastic, lace and ribbon.
Sewing patterns such as Vogue, Simplicity and Burda, as well as some incredible vintage finds. There are also knitting and crochet patterns, embroidery and crafting books
Not only do we receive donations of cut lengths of fabric, we also receive rolls of deadstock and specialty fabrics for quilting and upholstery.
We have all manner of knitting and crochet supplies including wool and cotton yarn. There is also a collection of embroidery threads and accessories.
Connect with our community!
