Welcome to Wastons Fabrics. My name is Claire Watson and I hope that my fabrics will inspire you to create something beautiful and unique.
My love for fashion and design grew from when I first learnt to sew as a child learning from my mother and her sisters. I completed my first diploma in clothing production at college and was named the winner of the Rhea Awards for Fashion Excellence in 2000.
I went on to teach students sewing and other fashion design elements at junior school level and college for a few years. Later I began specialising in making bespoke wedding gowns under my own label, “Claire Catherine Bridal and Couture” to design, inspire and create magnificent garments for real woman to fit perfectly, accentuate their best features and enhance their natural beauty.
I love creating designs and teaching others to do the same, so after my beautiful daughter Elizabeth was born, I opened “Eli-b by Claire Watson” to teach sewing classes for beginners through to advanced level.
My passion for fabrics, their feel on the skin when worn as a garment, and how they can transform the figure when sewn together correctly led me open “Watson’s Fabrics” as more of my clients were looking for something different and of the highest quality that I myself value.
If you don’t find what you are looking for, keep an eye on my website as I’ll be adding new fabrics all the time.
