Do.It.Yourself. Fabrics and designs

Do you desire to make different types of home decorative items – throw covers, curtains and the like? Or perhaps you want to make your own clothing? Due to the proliferation of mass production of designs we have around us, everyone – myself inclusive – wants unique items particularly in our wears.

Anything is possible with pins, needles and some fabric.

Once you get started buying sewing supplies and other sewing accessories that can help you bring your ideas to life, you are well on your way to transforming fabrics into works of art, from couture creations to delightful decor.


At Metro Home City, we carry everything you need to start sewing and quilting projects or to finish the ones you have going on.

Ideally when you buy fabrics, it is always a good idea to have a project in mind at the beginning. Having an idea of what you want to sew will have a strong impact on your sewing issues such as type of material to buy, the type of the accessories needed, the type of machine you are to use. For instance if you are looking for warmth when you shop fabric, fleece fabric might be the best choice, while something elegant might be best designed with either a silk fabric or a chiffon fabric. And please don’t forget to buy the coordinating colours of thread!

While it is good to know how to use a needle and thread to hand-stitch something simple, you really need a sewing machine if you are interested in taking up sewing as a hobby or even full-time. As you must well know, in the market there are two main types of sewing machines: motor and electronic sewing machines. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses. The function of each type of sewing machine is different. There are also the embroidery and overlocker machines to make designs on your sewn pieces.

So whether your attempt is for a small sewing project or your runway debut, Metro Home City has everything you need, from fabrics and buttons to quilt patterns and sewing machines. We are the one-stop shop for all of your fabric and sewing needs. When it comes to service, quality and product variety, we have everything you need to feed and satisfy your sewing addiction!
