New blogpost up on the website today. A bit later than planned, I was doing so well making them fortnightly until the summer and it all went to pot!
Must try harder.
Anyway this one is all about fabric hoarding and collecting and hanging onto old stuff in general. https://buff.ly/2EGWQ1A

New and updated press page now on the website.
It's interesting to look back and see how many articles and interviews I've been involved in, and also to see how far I've come and how my business has changed over the past 6 years.
Thanks to each and every publication and blogger who has taken an interest in, and supported my small business. It really does make such a difference to those of us with no marketing budget to play with!

Look who's been featured on the Atomic Ranch website! Atomic Ranch Magazine has long been a favorite read here at 20th Century Cloth and I'm sure that many of you will have already heard of it or indeed already subscribe.
If you've never seen it this is what it's about,... "Atomic Ranch celebrates midcentury houses—from 1940s ranch tracts to 1960s architect-designed modernist homes. With an emphasis on affordable solutions and homeowner renovations, our quarterly magazine shows you how to make your house cool, both inside and out." You can read our article here, if you read to the end you will also find a discount code. https://buff.ly/2QUQ0HR…/textiles-with-a-twist-how-a…/ See More

We are extremely proud to have been featured in the brand spanking new Actual Size Magazine.
If you have ever stood and scanned the magazine racks (as I did recently before my holiday) trying to find something to read that didn't insist on telling you how, what and when you should be doing something or other in order to lead a fulfilling life, then this magazine will be a very refreshing change.
Instead it is full of interesting articles on art, design, music, film, travel, life, love, health, inspiration, creative independent business and much more.
It is available to purchase from Sainsburys and also from the website at,

Throwback to last year and my very first Interior fabric customer who had these amazing curtains made in Monterey fabric. Absolutely stunning. Thanks @tashyeddy and @rockolaeddy

Incredibly honoured to be featured in the August edition of Fabric Magazine.
It's a great read so I'm sharing it here in its entirety but you can find me on page 56!

Attention all you sewers and seamstresses. I've got 1.3m left of the Señora print on cotton poplin. Being very slightly OCD it's driving me slightly potty and doesn't help my tidy mind. If anyone wants it I'm happy to let it go for £20 including UK p&p.(Usually £28/m plus p&p) DM me your PayPal email and I'll send you an invoice. First come first served, this is the very last piece except for a couple of quilting fat quarters.

Ok I'm asking for some help from you all, I might live to regret it I know! Thinking ahead a bit, but I'm interested to know what other type of product you would be interested in seeing my designs on?
Aside from the fabric, I am already doing cushions (not sure whether I'll be continuing these) lampshades, washbags, mirrors and coasters. Thinking of having some washbags made in the new interior fabrics? I'd be really happy to hear any thoughts. Only proviso is that I must be able to get them made in the UK.

Back from my holidays, forgot to post a link to a new blogpost that went live whilst I was away.
This time I knitted a cotton sleeveless cardigan for the summer (which I haven't ended up wearing since summer has been so warm this year)
