On average we would stock over 2200 different fabrics at any one time. Plus with new season fabrics coming in monthly and additional fabrics coming in weekly, you can rest assured that we’re the best place to pick up the latest dress fabrics.

If you have any questions or would like to know if we have a particular fabric or dress pattern in stock please call or email your nearest Franklins store.
Our Upholstery Departments are only available at our Colchester, Ipswich & Salisbury store.
Recently we have increased our upholstery departments so we can offer customers a larger selection of fabrics and upholstery accessories. We have over 100 different prints of upholstery fabrics, vinyl, table protectors, and upholstery accessories.
