NEW: Handprinted blocks by Pam Stallebrass

What did Magie do with her own Limited Edition fabric pack? She made this top, that's what.

NEW Limited Edition fabric packs

Are you looking for something special and different to inspire your next stitching project?

Magie and Jenny have auditioned and combined all sorts of African fabrics - mostly handmade, added some handmade printed panels and tossed in a few beads for embellishing and... presto: our Limited Edition selections.

  • Great colour combinations
  • Every pack is different, most are unique one-of-a-kind
  • Packs comprised of half metre, fat quarter and fat eighths
  • All fabrics are 100% cotton

Genuine Shwe Shwe: the real thing from Da Gama Textiles in South Africa

NEW Shwe Shwe fabrics just arrived from South Africa

We always look forward to Festival of Quilts. Why's that?

First, as the biggest and best quilt show in Europe, it's our most important show.

Second, every year it's where we launch our new Shwe Shwe fabrics.

Alas, this year's Fesitval of Quilts is postponed to 2021. We'll miss it and we'll miss seeing you there.

But don't despair...

Sticking with tradition, our annual shipment from Da Gama in South Africa has just arrived. We've got a veritable rainbow of new Shwe Shwe colours and designs on the website NOW!
