Photo of three Christmas fabrics layered on top of one anotherWe have worked out our Christmas opening hours to help you shop for fantastic fabrics and holiday haberdashery, safely and easily.
We are open Tuesday to Friday from 10am till 2pm and closed on Sunday and Monday. We will extend our opening hours on Saturdays only until 4pm.
We will be open on Christmas Eve, closing at 2pm. We will reopen with our fabulous New Year sale on Tuesday 5th January at 10am.

How will we manage social distancing?

To keep everyone safe, we only accept three customers at one time in the front of the shop and one in the back of the shop, so please be aware of that when you are browsing. Many of our customers would like to keep their distance from others, so again be aware and move away from others. We ask everybody to sanitise their hands (or gloves) and wearing a mask over your mouth and nose is mandatory.

Can I make an appointment at The Peacock and the Tortoise?

You certainly can! Should you need more time in case you are selecting fabrics for a new quilt, you can make an appointment to do that. Appointments are available on weekdays from 2pm to 3pm. Zoom appointments are available for those who can’t travel. Just phone us to arrange on 01738 717009.
