"worn and washed fabrics" has been around for 18 years, mainly selling ready to sew bundles of re claimed fabrics to make unique quilts with a softness and originality to call your own, the bundles have sold at Liberty in London which led to Kim making their patchwork/craft bundles for many years, the current collection of fabrics consists of re claimed fabrics mixed with Liberty pieces, the liberty kits are all new fabrics, many of them are vintage and exclusive to Kim.

Kim collects the clothing from charity shops, washes, line dries, cuts, irons and collates the bundles herself, many of the colourways are now standards, "washday blues" shabby chic" "new year neutrals"

are just a few. These are always one offs and limited edition bundles, recently she has developed a

range of re claimed damask and linen bundles and kits which feature the Liberty designs.... everything

is always a unique mix! In this workshop you will have the chance to make a “washed and worn” irregular log cabin cushion. Kits are available from Kim for either 12” £16.50 or 16 x 12” £22.50, each kit is uniquely different.(payable to Kim on the day)
