Dear Customers and Friends,

It is with great sadness that DMButtons and Soho Embroidery are temporarily CLOSED.

With new government measures, to protect our families and to free up transport for key workers we have taken the decision to implement an extended Easter break.

We apologise to all customers that have taken an interest in our attempt to carry on with part-time opening, although at this time it just hasn’t been possible.

As soon as we are taking orders again the website and social media will be updated. We will be responding to enquiries periodically throughout our closure.

“My families company has been operating in Soho for the best part of 100+ years, Clothing manufacture and my business has seen through the 1918 Spanish Flu, 1951 Influenza Epidemic, 1957 Asian Flu, 2 World Wars and more recently the 2003 SARS coronavirus. We are taking precautions at this time so that we can overcome the 2020 COVID-19. I wish everyone well and see customers again soon.” David
