COVID-19: 'firebreak'/lockdown in Wales

Saturday 24 October to Monday 9 November

Calico Kate is closed to visitors,
but not to your orders!

So it is mail or internet ordering only during the lockdown.

It is my intention to continue to accept and process orders received by email in the usual way. Orders may take a little longer than usual to be dispatched, so please be patient!

When emailing an order, be sure to include your address, telephone number, the name of the fabric collection(s), the code Number(s) and description as on my website, and the quantity required.

As soon as possible, I will check that it is in stock, and telephone you to confirm and take your credit card details.

All orders will receive a Quilters Quip and a chance to enter the Quilters Quip Challenge! See the News page for further information.

Keep smiling and keep sewing! – Kate

International orders

As restrictions on overseas mail are changing constantly, both in the UK and abroad, I may not always be able to accept orders from outside the UK – but always ask, as I can check the current situation at the Post Office.

In a building full of charm and character, you can now wander through twelve rooms of fabric, haberdashery and yarn, in a relaxed
and homely atmosphere.
