Chinelo Bally, finalist of the BBC’s ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’ is just one of the talented team of teachers heading up Crystal Palace’s latest High Street arrival. Earlier this year Dulwich businesswoman Nancy Shelton Jaffray expanded her existing online fabric retail business to open a Pop-Up Haberdashery Shop and Textile School on Church Road SE19. The shop specializes in sourcing fantastic and affordable contemporary fabrics from small design labels, alongside more mainstream fabrics, knitting yarns, patterns, tools and haberdashery. The textile school teaches sewing, dressmaking, pattern-cutting, knitting, crochet, soft furnishing and runs kids craft classes.

Now the team are seeking to make the shop and school permanent with a Crowdfunding Campaign via Seedrs that will see the sale of 20% of it’s shares to raise £60,000 which will be used to secure the shop and school, expand the business and offer three traditional apprenticeships. So far they’ve raised a fantastic £33,000 from 77 investors. The remaining £27,000 must be raised before 19th December.

Fancy Moon has qualified for the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) which offers tax incentives to investors, and the team are offering a fantastic range of investor discounts, rewards and gifts!

Fancy Moon, 85 Church Road, Crystal Palace SE19 2TA.
