I almost never remember to review places online. Guthrie and Ghani is one of those shops that I find myself looking forward to visiting each time. Staff are knowledgeable and happy to help, and they always seem to stock what I need. Such a relaxing atmosphere to inspire your next make. A fantastic gem in Birmingham.

I recently attended a sneaker making workshop here which a must for any creatives! I’ve been back today to purchase gorgeous pattern and fabric for a dress. Can’t wait to start it. Helpful staff with expert advice.

Finally got round to booking and attending a class and it was just as I had hoped. A relaxing evening where I could learn a new skill in a small group. Lauren has a beautiful shop which made me nostalgic for dressmaking as a child. She was a great teacher and the small group meant she could give individual help as required. Felt I had really learnt some good basics and could be confident to knit at home and try my own projects. Level 2 sounds interesting too! Would highly recommend.

Although I have visited the Guthrie and Ghani website a number of times and made a good few purchases, I visited the shop for the very first time last Saturday... and it will certainly not be the last!

This shop is my idea of fabric heaven. I was booked on to a workshop with my Mum but we had time to look around the shop beforehand. Really lovely welcoming space with very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Of course I bought more fabrics to take home.

Our workshop was sewing with stretch fabrics and we created a raglan sweatshirt (Linden) each. The sewing space upstairs is so light and spacious - the perfect setting. Claire took the class and she was just fab, making us drinks and sharing her knowledge and skills, talking through each section as we made up our garments. I think we all went away feeling quite pleased with ourselves and our new creations!

I will most certainly be back but in the meantime I feel really inspired to make more Lindens!!

Thank you so much Guthrie and Ghani!!

So this is my new favourite shop. Visited on Saturday for the beginners dressmaking class. I arrived a bit early and had a mooch around the shop, the staff we lovely and greeted me as I arrived.
The class itself was brilliant, it was a bit daunting but Claire made us all a cuppa and talked us through each step of what we were doing so I soon got into the swing of it.
Claire handled the class brilliantly, answering all of our questions and calls for help quickly! I will be back to visit for a proper shop for fabric and some patterns and most definitely another class. Well worth the money and would highly recommend to anyone to give it a go!

I absolutely love this shop... I have visited a number of times and have completed two Work shops with Layla. The workshops are good value.. and Layla is a really experienced knowledgable teacher. The workshop has fantastic facilities that are well maintained

The store has a wide range of classic and quirky fabrics that are bang on trend . The staff in the store are very knowledgable and are keen to help ensure that customers find exactly what they need. No question or request seems to much for the staff they can’t be any more helpful! Yet I never feel under pressure to buy.

The presentation and layout of the store is lovely and clean... very modern, bright and fresh.

I love the fact that the store stocks a lovely range of liberty fabrics for when I want to treat myself 😊

There is a great range of easy to use modern patterns from a range of smaller companies which are hard to find elsewhere on the higher street.

I spent a really enjoyable day here attending three short sewing workshops, each covering skills such as topstitching and fly front zip insertion for e.g. jeans. The workshop room is light and spacious with top quality sewing machines to experiment on. Former Great British Sewing Bee finalist Lauren and her team provided excellent guidance, clear notes and understanding support. All was accompanied by plenty of tea and homemade cake! The fabric shop has a beautiful range of fabrics at a variety of prices and the haberdashery is wide-ranging. Expert staff on hand to provide advice on fabric choices and patterns complete the picture.

A really lovely shop with friendly and knowledge staff who aren't overbearing.
The selection of fabrics is excellent and really well chosen and displayed. Good job I don't live nearby or I would be adding to my hoard!
