Rolls And Rems, Lewisham

  • 111 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6AT

Rolls and Rems was a fabric shop on Lewisham High Street. It closed for good in February 2022 due to the retirement of the owners.

Following the closure, manager Jennifer Allen decided to open her own fabric shop, Genny's Emporium, across the road.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Friendly fabric shop on Lewisham High Street, with two other branches in Holloway and Edmonton.

The shop is a just a breath away from chaotic, with a few large bins of super-cheap remnants at the front. Over the large ground floor there are a variety of fabrics at cheap to middling to reasonable prices, and a few special "expensive" fabrics (which are bargain-tastic compared to e.g. Berwick Street). This includes cotton, linen, poly-combo stuff, suit fabric, etc. The back of the shop has novelty fabrics such as monster fur and vinyl/tablecloth material.

The top floor is smaller and has lots of curtain fabric, blanket/quilting and sheet fabrics and some bridalwear type of things. On Bec's September 2007 visit there were also some Halloween themed fabrics (that I was told are there year round).

The shop also stocks a good supply of trimmings (zips, snaps, thread, elastic by the metre) and the staff are very eager to offer help and advice for any level of sewer.

Accessibility: No step to get in to the front part (where the till is). The back of the ground floor is at a higher level, and although there's a ramp to get up there, it's a very steep one. The space inside is quite cramped, filled with displays of fabrics and trimmings. There also doesn't appear to be any step-free access to the top floor.
