Press release for Festival of Quilts
I'm back - with more fantastic vintage Japanese fabrics than ever before!
During the last few years, I've increased my fabric range considerably and now stock a big selection of vintage and recycled Japanese kimono fabrics, including -
* sashiko fabrics and threads, including fine sashiko thread
* traditional tsumugi (slubbed weave) cotton striped fabrics
* indigo and white yukata cotton fabrics, from the 1960s to the present day, in small and large patterns, including geometrics and abstract designs
* colourful late C20th women's yukata fabrics with large scale prints, dyed with the chusen stencil technique (as seen in Patricia Belyea's book 'East Meets West Quilts')
* stunning kimono silks - great for projects like infinity scarves
* silk and wool blends, including tsumugi (slubbed weave), kasuri (woven ikat) and gauzy hemp blend summer fabrics (great for Korean Pojagi)
* recycled fabrics - unpicked from vintage and antique kimono, futon covers and work clothes, these are perfect for boro projects
These are all the traditional narrow width fabrics, approximately 14in wide. Ideal if you are looking for something a bit different for your project. Whether sashiko, patchwork, quilting, dressmaking, embroidery, bags or home dec, you'll find something unusual at stand N10. Because the majority of my fabrics are vintage, they are unrepeatable, so if you see something you like, get it now. Fabrics from just £12 per metre and fine sashiko threads from £6 for 370m skeins.
See you at the Festival!
This is the press release I have attempted to upload to my entry on the Festival of Quilts website 'Exhibitor Zone'. I suspect it did not upload. I'm finding most of their online forms to be quite frustrating to complete!
