Simmy Schofield and Holly Allen are the co-owners of this great shop. they are both knowledgeable and friendly. I have known them for 8 years now - I bought the fabric for my very first quilt here. Simmy spent ages with me, helping me to choose fabric and then calculating how much I would need.
Both Simmy and Holly are avid quilters and teach daily in the large workshop that is part of the shop. If you are a beginner then they will teach you everything you need to know and at 90 rands for 3 hours tuition it is a bargain too.
My first quilt: made in CapeTown, 2005
At the shop there is always a large stock of lovely printed fabrics, buttons, tools and equipment, threads, Inkwali hand dyed fabrics, Da Gama Shweshwe fabrics, Singer sewing machines and a selection of handmade smocked children's clothing.
If you are in the area, pop in for a look - you are sure to find something you 'need'!
