Magie Relph and Bob Irwin travel extensively all over Africa searching out fabulous textiles, beads and baskets.
Every time we unpack our bags, we add new temptations to the website. Enjoy!
We are co-organisers of eight World Textile Days around the UK in 2019.
With Magie and Bob down south at the Brockenhurst Needlework Fiesta, Jenny's pitching in to represent The African Fabric Shop at this great new local event.
And if you need advice on upcycling, just ask Jenny: she's a pro!
Venue: Holmfirth Civic Hall, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, HD9 3AS.
Check out the new colourways for our easy-to-make Shwe Shwe Woven Basket kit.
Each kit makes two baskets in you chosen colourway.

Beware: the cakes are as tempting as the textiles!
Have you noticed we've cut down on the big shows? We've only got Festival of Quilts left. Here's why.
From our World Textile Days, we've discovered something important about running a small scale, fair trade business. We're not just selling fabrics, beads and baskets. We're communicating our experiences and our passion for what we do directly to you.
So instead of big shows, we'd rather bring our mobile shop to you. These types of events are perfect for what we're talking about:
Invite Magie as a speaker and we'll bring the shop with us!
