This is a website for textiles enthusiasts. It is packed with information, inspiration and items of interest. I’m Amanda – an artist, designer and maker based in Ramsgate, UK. I create art, design fabrics, write quilt patterns, make quilts, teach classes and sell beautiful quilts.

If you like fabrics, there are 120 original Fabric Designs here, including ‘Bees and Bumble Bees’ (left). You’ll find charming, colourful and sometimes quirky textiles for your dressmaking, quilting and home furnishing needs. All designs can be printed on a variety of fabrics (and even on wallpaper). Orders are supplied by print-on-demand firm Spoonflower and are shipped from Berlin, Germany or Durham, USA.

If you need detailed, easy-to-follow Quilt Patterns take a look at the patterns here. Each pattern (like the ‘Mexico Quilt’ shown right) has clear, step-by-step instructions with colour photos. Confident beginners, intermediate quilters and sewing enthusiasts will find these patterns for textile items easy to use. Some patterns are designed specifically for absolute beginners.


Items on a table to illustrate one of the classes offered by Amanda Jane Textiles, in this case the 'Inspired by Colour' class. There are two colour wheels, some fabric pieces, flowers, paints and paintbrush and wax crayons.
