Slipstitch During Covid-19

We're delighted to say that our shop at 108 Alexandra Park Road is open! Our hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 10 till 5.

  • Masks are mandatory in the shop.
  • Please use the hand sanitiser provided by the entrance when you come in.
  • We are only taking card payments at the moment - preferably contactless ones
  • Please keep your group size to a minimum and keep any children close by - we're trying to minimise touching the stock!

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about how we're operating during the pandemic.

Visiting

Can I come and pick up my order from the store?

Yes! We have now added in-store collection as a delivery option. Our opening hours are going to be quite limited to start with so please check what they are before you set off.

Why are your hours so weird?

Great question! I - Rosie, owner, hello! - am in the Extremely Vulnerable group so have been shielding since March. As such, I'm being extra cautious with re-opening so we can be sure it's safe for you and for me and my lovely staff. I appreciate it's not always convenient and I'm really grateful for your patience.

Are you doing classes?

While we've opened the shop for browsing, we're still being cautious about having groups in the workshop for several hours. We are able to offer one-to-ones in sewing and knitting and are building a schedule of online classes - keep your eyes peeled!

Deliveries

Where is my order?

Orders are taking longer than they usually would to be delivered. As we are only posting orders twice a week, your parcel may take a few days to be dispatched. After that, it's in the hands of the Royal Mail who are obviously doing their best in some severely limited circumstances. Some of our orders are arriving next day, some are taking three weeks. Please don't contact us to ask where your order is until at least a fortnight has passed since you got our dispatch notification.

Stock

I want X but it isn't on your website - can I order it?

If you know we stock an item but you can't find it on our website, please drop us an email and we can get it sorted for you.

Can you order me X in specially?

Absolutely! Please let us know what you're after and we'll do our best.
