New Alexander Henry Fabric | Pinup, Zebras, Bright Spots and Mexico

One of our favourite fabric brands is Alexander Henry, in fact these fabrics are the reason we opened up a fabric store to begin with. The print quality and base cloth is always of highest quality and is perfect for sewing clothing.

We have had a few new Alexander Henry fabrics arrive and they are all now available in showroom and on our website.

This is a 50% reduction of the popular Aloha Girls print

We should have another box of Alexander Henry fabrics arriving in a few weeks, we can't wait to show you what's in it :)
