Goulds haberdashery department on the first floor of Goulds Household Store has everything you need, from replacing a broken zip, decorating a child’s Halloween costume to knitting a family of scarecrows should it take your fancy!

Our yarn and haberdashery department has been established in the heart of Dorchester for well over 40 years and continues to stock an array of sewing and knitting requirements.

We stock a variety of sewing aides such as tailors forms, work boxes, scissors, tape measures, glues and interfacings, elastic, bias bindings, curtain tapes and linings, rotary cutters and boards for patchwork and quilting.

However, if you’re looking to add that finishing touch you’ll find ribbons, lace, cords, buttons, zips and fasteners, motifs and trims and you can hold it all together with our superior threads.

Our individually selected range of cotton fabrics from Jane Makower, Tilda and other unique prints will give you inspiration for your next project, including patterns from Simplicity, New Look and Burda.

The popular knitting department continues to evolve with changing yarns through the seasons. On trend yarns from Sirdar, Stylcraft, Erika Knight, KingCole, Wendy, and Robin. Backed up with a large selection of books and leaflets for knitting and crochet. And don’t forget your hooks and needles! 2ply to super chunky…the choice is yours.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to assist with your next chosen project!

It was an absolute pleasure to visit Goulds but for me it always is! Today, Carey helped me sort out curtains for my bedroom. Such an amazing help! I left your store a very happy lady! She suggested an option I hadn’t even thought of ! Thank you so much Carey! I have to say the staff in Goulds are wonderful.
