Coronavirus Update – 29/4/21

The shop is now open! We are back to our normal hours of 10am to 5pm Wednesday to Saturday. We can only admit two customers at a time so please be patient. We also ask that you wear a mask and sanitise your hands when entering the shop.

Local pick-up is available and collection times are during normal shop opening hours.

We have released a small schedule of socially distanced classes for May and June. Everyone will be seated 2m apart and required to wear masks, the classes are also spaced 72 hours apart. We are hoping that things will improve and we will be able to release a more comprehensive schedule later in the year.

Stay safe everyone!

Welcome to myBearpaw.com

myBearpaw  is a fabric, yarn and haberdashery store situated in central Edinburgh with a teaching studio attached.  Though compact the store is brimming with the best modern fabric, quality yarns and superior threads (much of which is available here online!), all enhanced by the creative inspiration available in the studio. We pride ourselves on friendly helpful customer service. The store is open every Wednesday – Saturday.

myBearpaw Craft Classes – where you can learn new skills in a friendly, relaxed environment.  Both Catriona, who owns the shop, and Jane, the shop Manager, teach regular classes. There is also an ever changing team of skilled regular tutors plus occasional exciting guest tutors from around the world.

With an emphasis on fun and creativity, the aim of our workshops is to share skills and inspire students to get involved in a wide range of crafts such as quilting, crochet, knitting, patchwork, embroidery, bag making, sewing machine skills.  These days are about treating yourself while you learn!

Our huge craft studio in our store provides the ideal spacious, well-lit environment to inspire and delight.


We have released a small class schedule for May and June. There will be a maximum of 4 people per class who will be seated 2 metres apart. Masks will need to be worn throughout the classes and to make this a bit easier no full-day classes will be running. Where necessary full-day classes have been split into multiple half-day or evening classes. We will clean the studio between every class but to add an extra layer of safety we are only running classes on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings so that the virus has more than 72 hours to die on surfaces between classes.


Our Edinburgh shop is continuing with our regular opening hours of Wednesday – Saturday 10am -5pm.  We understand that not everyone will be able or want to return to physical shopping and we want to continue catering to those customers so you are welcome to place an order over the phone or through our online shop.

Shop Rules
We can only admit two customers at a time so please be patient. This means that if there are two people in the shop when you arrive you will need to wait outside and make sure any queuing is socially distanced.

On entering the shop we will request that you use the hand sanitiser provided. Inside the shop you will be required to wear a face covering and avoid touching surfaces, including fabric as much as possible. Our staff will also wear face coverings.  As most of you know our shop is quite small and we feel these extra precautions are sensible at the present time.

Our staff will make sure that all surfaces are kept as clean as possible and we promise to do all we can to ensure our shop is a safe environment for all

Unfortunately Crafternoons and Craft Club remain on hold.

You can try calling us any time on 0131 228 6377, if you have trouble getting through please leave a clear message and we will return your call when we are able.

If you are unable to get through on the phone or would just rather contact us by email please send your correspondence to hello@mybearpaw.co.uk.

Thanks so much for your ongoing support of myBearpaw. Let’s continue to stay safe and strong and get through this together!
