During my search for a suitable upholstery fabric, I was pointed in the direction of ‘The Fabric Mill’ at Halley Stevensons which is on Annfield Road, just behind the University or find it on the web at What a great shop, with a fabulous range of fabrics all at very reasonable prices. It is well worth a visit.

They unfortunately didn’t have the type of piled fabric I was seeking, but I did have a good natter with Louise Forbes an ex-graduate who works there and is half of the furniture design partnership ‘TWIG’, see for more details of their work. Louise said she had seen bathmats in a similar fabric at Dunelm Mill, so a short bus ride later and I had my upholstery fabric!

The other upholstery elements; foam, wadding and tools I purchased online from; which have just about everything you might want in upholstery.

The other specialist fixings – Tnuts and Stainless Steel Allen Socket Countersunk Screw Bolts I sourced through Ebay.
