Welcome to Calico Kate!

About Calico Kate

Established in 2002, Calico Kate has gained a reputation as an 'Aladdin's Cave' for patchworkers, dressmakers, knitters and embroiderers.

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.

Calico Kate is in Lampeter's High Street, next to the handsome Town Hall.
