Terrys Fabrics See Rise in Fabric Sales in New Make-Do-And-Mend World

CHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 6, 2011) - Since the recession, shoppers around the country have been cutting back on needless buying to help save money. In this new make-do-and-mend world, sewing machine sales have been on the rise and thus the amount of fabric being purchased is soaring. People are clamouring to join courses in sewing and design in order to create their own furnishings.

This new trend, according to Terrys Fabrics, is a sign of the times. In years gone by, the sewing machine was the perfect gift for grandmothers nationwide but cue the credit crunch and it has become a must-have accessory for households looking to create things by hand.

Over the last year, the amount of fabrics being sold in stores across the nation has risen dramatically. People are choosing to create their own curtains, tablecloths, cushion covers and other household furnishings which would otherwise be expensive. On top of that, consumers are getting even more inventive and choosing to create their own chairs, sofas and other furniture. Not only does this new money-saving scheme help put money aside but it also makes the home truly unique to any other.

Paul McGuinness, Director of Terrys Fabrics commented on the rising trend of C.I.Y (Creating It Yourself). He says he has noticed an increasing number of customers who have become inspired by the wide range of fabrics and accessories available in store. Frequently being asked for advice on how to get inventive, McGuinness says his staff are in the process of educating themselves on possible C.I.Y projects for existing customers.
