Our History

After leaving school, Jeff joined his family's fabric business and has now been working in the trade for almost 50 years.  As you can imagine, fabric has become the 'fabric' of Jeff's being.  And, while he'll never mentally retire from it, the time has come to slow down a little and enjoy our family time.

While Covid delayed our plans, it also convinced him that he doesn't have to fully retire, and his passion and dedication to helping our customers create their beautiful homes and projects will continue.

We there, by November 2021, will be relocating our business away from our shop in Diss and operating solely online, with a brand new website.  We will be holding a large relocation sale with business carrying on as usual until that time.

Diss Furnishing Fabrics will continue to operate after November using the same phone numbers, email address and a brand new website.  We will continue to assist you in finding your perfect fabric, made-to-measure curtains and blinds, re-upholstery, trimmings, pole and professional advice.  We will continue to offer a free measuring service, fabric advice and some fitting services too.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our past, present and future customers for their loyalty and support and look forward to working with you again soon.

Thank You

Jeff and Lizz Young
