    I was Interested in a suiting fabric on sale and needing details of the amount still available I phoned. The exact yardage was quoted, all relevant details were processed and the fabric arrived within one working day. Excellent service, beautiful fabric and a knowledgeable sales advisor with a sense of humour. No-one could ask for more. Thank you so much.



    I was searching for a specific material and Higgs & Higgs have an enormous range. It was easy to get samples, the customer service was very helpful and efficient.
    Ordering my chosen material was easy, and delivery was fast. Excellent service; will definitely use again.



    The materials I purchased were even better than I had hoped and arrived so fast, Such a wide range to choose from too.



    Lovely range of fabrics, very prompt service in terms of arranging for some samples and the subsequent fabric order. I wouldn't hesitate to utilise Higgs & Higgs again.



    Excellent service very helpful fabric beautiful just what I wanted.



    Excellent quality fabric and had the good fortune to meet a very helpful, courteous staff member at the Stitch Festival at the end of last month. Will certainly be making further purchases in the future.



    As usual the fabric that I purchased was great and it arrived on time. I would recommend Higgs & Higgs to everyone.



    I’m over the moon with all the fabrics I recently purchased. They all arrived in great condition, neatly folded without any additional creases. The fabric feels and looks like very good quality, good colours and thickness. Perfect for my projects of making baby and children’s clothes and little bags. I find all fabrics I’ve ordered here beautiful and will keep buying more.
