Bias Cut Studio

We have been making some changes at Big Cat Textiles with more still to come!

New this summer is the exciting launch of Bias Cut Studio, a dedicted sewing space with 6 brand new Husqvarna sewing machines, new floor standing daylight lamps and full central heating among other things. It is so exciting to have this brand new sewing space and we can’t think of a better way of christening it than to offer up places during the week August 18-22 to come and work on your own personal projects with the use of all equipment as required, such as cutting tables, steamer, dummies etc.
