At 42 Custom Fabric it is our aim to provide fun and geeky, custom designed, digitally printed, knit and woven fabrics.

We have a passion for crafting, design and fabric. Creativity makes us happy. We love to come up with fun, colourful and geeky ideas and then turn them into beautiful fabrics. And then we love to see those fabrics come to life – sewn up by our customers into clothes, bags, curtains, cushions and a whole host of other sewing projects.

We offer a range of custom designs, digitally printed on a variety of fabric bases. You can read more about these in our help topics. Additionally, we have a range of in stock fabric and also run monthly preorders for limited edition designs. You can join our Facebook group for more information about preorder fabrics.

We love individuality. It is important to us that our fabrics are all custom designed and the majority are also drawn by us as well. Thereby ensuring that items sewn with them will really stand out.

We firmly believe in the importance of fostering good relationships amongst the sewing community. We are always striving to innovate in terms of the products that we offer. It is important to us that they add value to other sewing businesses.  This thought was at the forefront during the development of our care labels and print your own service.

Good relationships and good design are led by good communication. If you have any feedback for us, then please get in touch.
