Hello and welcome to our new blog.
The Homefront is inspired by our collective love of the 1940’s and the make do and mend culture of the time. We aim to counter the throwaway clothing trends of today. We hark back to a time when knitting was the norm and clothes were made from scratch out of patterns and fabric.
With this blog we seek to share our passion and knowledge with interesting articles, things to make, creative ideas and more.
We are based in Cornwall. Our creative hub is in Lostwithiel, an ancient stannary town.
Our online shop stocks a unique blend of vintage and vintage inspired fabrics. We have an extensive range of Lewis & Irene fabrics. We also stock ribbons, buttons and threads, knitting patterns and needles.
We take our travelling textile museum on the road with workshops and talks. See our website for more details at www.homefrontstore.co.uk
