'I just love your African fabrics, but what can I do with them?'
Our answer, as you might expect, is pretty drastic: Cut them up and be creative!
Well, that's just what many of our customers do and we're constantly amazed at the innovative pieces they create. And because not everybody is a quilter, when ever we can we like to show other uses for our fabrics - such as clothing, bags and accessories, upholstery - you name it.
So, if you're proud of a textile creation that you've made using our fabrics, please email us a high quality digital image. Time permitting, we'll try to get it up on this page for everyone to admire.
Amafu covered sofa - Micaela Almeida
Micaela's done a wonderful job of showing off our hand-dyed Amafu fabric from South Africa.
Pam is a very good friend and an astounding creative artist from South Africa. This quilt - for us the highlight of her exhibition last year at Festival of Quilts - was inspired by her journey with us around Ghana.
Pam's closeup photographs of hands pay tribute to our many Ghanaian friends: the dyers, makers and artists who supply The African Fabric Shop.
