I'm Corinne

 Darn It & Stitch
- my little slice of heaven, my very own gorgeous, riverside haberdashery -  in the heart of Southampton...


turning a pipe dream into Reality

Darn It & Stitch has always a bit of a pipe dream. - The idea of opening a haberdashery and spending all day doing what I love to do, sewing, quilting, crocheting and stroking gorgeous fabric, sounds like my piece of heaven... and well, here we are!! 

I have always loved sewing from a young age, I started with making clothes for my dolls out of scraps of fabric, I moved on to embroidering clothes for my baby sister, then after an injury in my teens, I decided to teach myself to crochet and so began a lifelong love of all things crochet and sewing.....

I Took over Darn it & Stitch in 2020 with the dream of spending my days enjoying what I love to do the most surrounded by like minded people and while on my journey I want to help both new and experienced sewers have fun on theirs.  

I’m sure most of us can say we’ve whiled away evenings on Pinterest, only to find that we’re no closer to those beautiful creations than when we started. My favourite part of the day is guiding a customer closer to those beautiful creations, providing advice, technical support and above all, ‘fabric selection expertise’ - yes, that is a real thing!
