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 seven World Textile Days around the UK.
Janice was in the shop recently and guess what she got up to...
As always, she just couldn't keep her hands off the fabrics, so Magie put her to work selecting fabrics for a new range of packs: our Janice Gunner Special Selections.
As an added bonus, each pack contains a 'hints and tips' sheet by Janice - perfect to get you started on your way to a new creation.
Be quick - these are limited editions!

What can YOU make with:
We have five great new Half Metre Challenge packs on the website to tempt you. Great colours, great fabrics, great colour co-ordinated threads and embellishments.

All of our new jewellery kits - designed exclusively for The Africa Fabric Shop by our own Isobel Holland - are now even easier to make.

Going back a few years, Bob used to write fairly regularly for Travel Africa magazine.
Recently he's reconnected with the publisher Craig Rix and his editorial staff and we're looking forward to working together to bring African fabrics to whole new audience.
Our first story for them is online now in the Travel Africa Extra section of their website.
