We are really excited - we have placed our next order for some more extra wide batik fabric.

This is being specially produced for us in Java using traditional methods. We have ordered 30 new designs / colours to add to our existing QS Batik range of 20 designs.

Here are some photos showing the actual fabric in production.

The Batik Process

When all our fabrics are ready, they will leave the factory in Java and head to the UK via container ship and this will journey will take around 5 to 6 weeks.

The new fabrics will certainly be here in time for Festival of Quilts in August and will be in our on line shop here  as soon as they arrive.Quilt Sandwich has the largest range of extra wide fabric / Quilt backs in the UK.

Jennie Rayment Retreat 2017

Another Fantastic retreat with the infamous Jennie Rayment from Create & Craft Tv and Justhands on Tv at Quilt Sandwich, The Royal Bridlington.

Over the three days the students made three different 'tweeked and twiddled' pieces

On day two, we played with hexagon blocks

Day three provided the students with lots of choices of bags and stitch bits. Here are just a few bits

Jennie will be back again at Quilt Sandwich next January.  Details will be on the website later.
