At times I promote very carefully selected companies that I enjoy working with and and whose products I love. I'm so grateful to have Oakshott Fabrics sponsor my site, which enables me to keep it running and provide content and value to my readers.

Oakshott Fabrics: lustrous shot cottons in glorious palettes of colour

Oakshott is a family-run business supplying quilters, sewers and textile artists the world over. Renowned for the high quality of its fabrics and the sumptuousness of its colour ranges, the collections are ethically sourced from specialist weavers with the equipment, expertise and capabilities to achieve the standards they require. 

Each unique Oakshott colourway is achieved by marrying a base colour warp with a complementary or contrasting weft thread. This produces the trademark ‘shot’ effect when the colour appears to shimmer and ‘move’ depending on how the light falls. The ‘Pieces of Eight’ collections share a common weft thread, making them particularly easy to mix, match and tone to stunning effect. Only by using the best quality dyes, soft water and computer-controlled dyeing is it possible to produce the superior colour strike and ensure an even application of colour.

Oakshott fabrics are a popular choice for both traditional and modern quilters. I love to use their beautiful fabrics in my work, and to show support to this wonderful British Company. To learn more about Oakshott fabrics and to purchase from them, visit www.Oakshottfabrics.com
