It is unfortunate that due to circumstances beyond their control the organisers of the festival have had to cancel for 2022. We are sincerely hopeful that they will return next year and our Quilt can be part of this wonderful and worthwhile event.

We are really proud that our famous Quilt had been chosen to be part of an exhibition that was due to take place in the trendy Fabric District of Liverpool later this year!

The mission statement for the Fabric District aims to bring this enclave of Liverpool City Centre back to life. Some aspects need to be revived & improved, whereas others should be conserved, supported and nurtured. This journey of revitalisation begain in 2017 and has grown into modern and exciting development backed by developers to create a mix of trendy restaurants, contemporary accomodation as well as a base for new and upcoming businesses to thrive and develop.

This Social Fabric will be a festival woven by the members of the Fabric District community and will reflect the diversity of skills, craft, passions and talent to be found there. Groups, businesses, retailers, residents, individual artisans and makers are all knitted together in the revival and refashioning of the historic centre of Liverpool’s rag trade.

The event was to include film screenings, exhibitions, street art and a live fashion event exploring the area’s rich history, celebrating its current community and looking forward to its exciting future transformations.
