Shop at Cowslip


Cowslip Workshops was set up by Jo Colwill at her home on her farm in Cornwall.  

"Fabric is my passion and has been since I was a little girl."   The Cowslip shop is a treasure trove of top quality fabrics including Moda, Rowan/Kaffe Fasset, Fossil Fern and Bali Batiks, flannel, plaids and checks and even boiled wool, plus an ever increasing range of linens from 80/20% to lovely Irish Dublin Linen or Shabby Chic. "I try to choose only very good quality fabrics and being a quilter myself, get so excited about new deliveries, as finding just the right piece of fabric can make all the difference to the finished quilt."

We are always pleased to help with choosing fabric or working out amounts.  We stock hand and machine sewing threads, including Aurafil, Mettler and Gutermann, as well as Cotton Perle No. 8 and Coton Broder No. 16 embroidery and quilting threads. 

We also stock Hobbs and Simply Cotton wadding (including extra wide), plus calico, muslin, linen, lawn, fleece, Stayflex, and Bondaweb. We also have Clover accessories, a variety of pins, needles, rulers and notions and all sorts of sewing goods. 

We have a good selection of tutorial books, patchwork magazines and greetings cards, with many of the cards by local artists.

Everything in the shop has a slightly rustic or 'farm' feel.  We stock pottery by Nicholas Mosse, Stephen & Jane Baughan and Brixton Pottery. We always have a small selection of quilts and handmade cushions on display and are pleased to make anything to order, but if sewn by hand it does take time.
We are agents for Bernina, the best and most precise sewing machine in the world and are happy to give demonstrations, but it is best to phone ahead to make sure that someone is available.
