We offer a variety of services providing fast, insured delivery to anywhere in the world.

The delivery time and charge for international orders depends on the destination, weight, value and size of the order. Just let us know which items you would like to order and the destination and we will calculate an accurate shipping charge.

Please note: Outside the EU, local customs' charges may be payable or import licences may be required. We cannot be responsible for these and advise that you check before ordering.


We welcome visitors to our warehouse during our opening hours and will even make special arrangements too.

With over 4000 products to choose from and with such a wide veriety, we're often described as an Aladdin's cave!


Feel free to order 1 metre, 1 bobbin of thread, whatever you need. We try our best to keep our units of sale exactly where our customers need them at their most convenient measurements.

It's worth remembering that postage is free anywhere in the UK¹ if you spend just £40!


We hold a comprehensive selection of courses carefully constructed to cater from the absolute beginner to the experienced looking to widen their skills.

We even hold courses online too so if we're too far to travel, advanced learning is achievable with our experienced milliner Christine.

Parkin Customers


Parkin have been supplying me for well over a decade now and the service and care taken to fulfil my orders is always exemplary. The quality of the materials and consideration taken to ensure their speedy delivery always impresses me as well.

Parkin’s are the bread and butter of any new millinery project. 

I’m so reliant on their extensive stock that I have a permanent Parkin’s tab open on my laptop.

They’re more than just a shop!

Fern Berreen Millinery

I have been working with Parkin Fabrics for over 30 years and their service is unparalleled.

Over the years I found many fantastic fabrications for my collections.

The quality of Parkin’s Velour felt hoods and capelines are the best that I have ever purchased! The quality is superb and an absolute delight to work with. They may be a little more expensive than other suppliers but well worth the extra.
