Gorgeous fabrics, great service.

Such beautiful, high quality fabrics on offer & lovely, speedy service. I love the variety of fabrics ranges, patterns & colours !! I am so excited to find an independent fabric store that has beautiful, wearable fabrics that are interesting, fun, and never boring. The thread matching guides are super handy too.

Brilliant colours - great quality

This winter will be anything but dull. I got French Terry and brushed sweater knits and go for colour blocking - from sunshine yellow to deep purple.

Such high quality

Bought this French Terry to make track pants for my very tall 15 year old son. He says the fabric is extremely comfortable. I say it’s a breeze to cut and sew.

Service and delivery

I have ordered fabric from Maaidesign several times now and each time they have excelled in the speed of delivery and the quality of the fabric.

Lovely knits

I recently bought 2 lengths of French terry and a length of Mind the Maker cotton and wool sweater knit. The fabrics are just what I expected and they arrived promptly. The terry was really easy to see with and I’m still deciding what to make with the sweater knit...maybe a sweater!!!
