On Monday 29th May, Darn It & Stitch will officially cast off after almost eight years.
Yup! We will be closing our doors at the end of May and ending business on a high. In the words of Nelly Furtado (remember her)? All good things come to an end.
As you know a few months ago I put Darn It & Stitch up for sale, and it turns out it’s a pretty niche job! Tricky pair of shoes to fill. With my life and work heading in new directions in Shropshire, I have to say goodbye to this little blue shop in Oxford. However there is a happy ending...
I will be handing the baton to a very lovely local business who is waiting in the wings to take over the space and continue with a selection our product ranges. We will be able to announce more details once it is all official. Exciting! You will love it.
Darn It & Stitch may be leaving but another beautiful shop will be coming in to take over in the not too distant future.There will be a new bright and vibrant Oxford Indie moving in. Hurrah! A happy ending indeed.
So, with the end of one chapter, a new chapter opens. Onwards and upwards to the future.
We are having a farewell party on Saturday 27th May 10 - 6 pm, so please come along, have a glass of fizz and say goodbye to Makiko, Jenny and me. Oh, and grab yourself a bargain as all our lovely stuff has to find new homes!
Thank you for all the support you have given to us since 2010, it’s been a blast.
Ps - The small print!

All alterations and darning will need to be collected and paid for by Monday 29th May.
