Introduce a Friend!

3 January 2024

Throughout 2024 we are offering a little extra something for subscribers who introduce a new subscriber. All you need to do is recommend a friend or relative who then takes out an annual Chrysalis Fabrics subscription (it's still only £18!) and you will receive a 20% discount off your next order.

New to Chrysalis?

What it's all about

Chrysalis Fabrics supplies premium quality fabrics to hundreds of subscriber dressmakers throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. We have a hard won reputation for a prompt, reliable and efficient service.

Chrysalis' proprietor, Diana, has been a professional dressmaker for over thirty years and, as such, can offer a wealth of practical advice and guidance on all aspects of dressmaking and tailoring to help subscribers get the best results from the fabrics.

Fabrics for each of our Collections are hand-picked to include a wide range of fibre content, colour and weight. As well as superb quality British, French and Italian woollens, cottons, linens and synthetics, we are often able to source special, unusual and designer fabrics. Subscribe now...

Subscribing is easy

What you get

For an annual cost of only £18.00 (or £22.00 if you live outside the UK) you will receive, each year, around 240 gorgeous fabric samples presented as four seasonal collections for you to keep.

Each Collection contains around 60 fabric samples. Each sample is approximately 5cm square, so that you can see the colour and feel the texture.

We also provide photographs of the fabrics from each Collection on this website. This way, our members can see, for example, pattern repeats more clearly.

Subscribers are under no obligation to purchase any fabric from any Collection. However, if you do decide to buy, you can order as little or as much (subject to availability!) as you need.

How to subscribe

You can download, print and complete a subscription form which you can then either post or fax to us.

However, the easiest way is to simply telephone Diana with your debit/credit card details.

Alternatively, you can text or message Diana with basic name and contact details and we will contact you to get payment details. DO NOT text, message or e-mail credit card details!

Subscriber extras

As a subscriber you can request samples from our back catalogue at any time and at no extra cost.

If you require a larger sample - just ask.

We can also supply some items of haberdashery, linings and interfacings if required.

A Word About Care Instructions

The care instructions we give with our fabrics are only a guide and err on the side of caution! Some of the fabrics can take a hotter wash (should that be required) and some of the "dry-clean only" fabrics can be washed with care, depending on the garment that they are made into.

We suggest taking a measured square from your remnants and washing that as you would want to wash your garment.
