CIVIL WAR COLLECTION Up Close & Personal Monday 20th October 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Please join us for an evening celebrating Village Fabrics’ unique collection of Civil War quilts which will have just returned from being on tour around the country. Wine and canapés will be served from 6.00pm, when the shop will also be open for purchases. Yvonne will then give an informative and entertaining talk about the quilt collection, and if this inspires you to start another project, there will be more opportunity to shop until 9.00pm. All fabrics will be discounted by 10%. In addition, normal Village Fabrics Club discounts will apply. Cost: £10 per person. Places will be limited, so please make your reservations early.
About Us Opening times:- 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday (closed on bank holidays)
Village Fabrics, founded in 1981, is the oldest quilt shop in Oxfordshire, and one of the first patchwork and quilting shops in the UK. We are located in Wallingford, a beautiful, market town on the River Thames, near Oxford and Henley.
Come and see our enormous variety of patchwork cottons, our fabrics include Moda, Marcus Brothers, Hoffman and Kona Bay as well as an extensive collection of 1930s prints and batiks. We have a permanent Christmas room with seasonal fabrics, advent calendars and panels. We are proud to design our own kits 'in house', including bags, block of the months, cushions, Christmas designs, quilts, small kits & wallhangings.
We sell some specialist quilting Husqvarna sewing machines, specialist quilting accessories, waddings, threads, books, patchwork & quilting magazines, ribbons and more! We also carry Simplicity patterns and Curtain Express "ready made" curtains.
We are very happy to help with any projects you have on the go, either in person, or by phone. Please appreciate though that at busy times we can't neglect any of our customers. Also please remember to bring your projects (and any instructions) with you if you need to match fabrics, or require any advice from us.
You could visit us for patchwork and quilting classes, we also host a variety of social groups. Often we have special events packed full of quilty goodness! If you think your machine needs some specialised T.L.C. then we can arrange to have your sewing machine serviced.
Of course as fellow quilters we understand that basting quilts can be back breaking work, especially if space is limited. We have a basting room upstairs in the shop with adjustable tables, that could be just what you are looking for. It can be hired by the day or half day. We may even remember to offer you refreshments throughout the day!
