You are very welcome to shop for our wide variety of African fabrics, beads and fair trade baskets in person. However, we don't have a traditional shop and we don't keep regular shop hours.
To avoid a wasted trip, please contact us in advance to make sure that we are not away in Africa or 'on safari' to a textile event somewhere in the UK or Europe

Please be aware that as do not operate as a conventional shop, we are located up a flight of 15 stairs.
Not everybody can make it to our usual Saturday shop open days. So we're experimenting with a special weekday opening. If you like it, we'll keep doing it.
Special guest artist Steph Saward will be on hand with here hand-dyed yarns, threads, shawls and silk scarves. Made right here in Meltham!
From time to time we offer workshops at our shop in Meltham, West Yorkshire. Many of you already know Magie, but let us introduce you to Isobel Holland.
Isobel never ceases to amaze with her creative energy and outputs. From textile art and quilting to her innovative jewellery designs, she's always coming up with something new and exciting. Isobel designs all of our jewellery kits and teaches our occasional jewellery workshops.
Occasionally we invite guest tutors as well, among them award winning quilter, acclaimed teacher and a great fan of African fabrics - Janice Gunner.
Our workshops are stimulating, friendly and - above all - fun!
