Alice Caroline sells beautiful Liberty fabric, patterns, notions and kits. Synonymous with classic florals, charming colour palettes and delicately detailed prints, Liberty’s fabrics are printed on impossibly soft, fine, high thread count 100% cotton tana lawn fabric. No surprise then that Oakshott, with its shot cottons, subtle shades and soft drape, provides the perfect accompaniment.

" My shop grew out of a life-long love of vibrant Liberty prints. As a child I would pore over my grandmother’s stash of quilting fabrics, savouring the bright delights of each new print.
Having completed a PhD in cancer genetics, I rediscovered my creativity as a maker and designer of dresses, cushions, bags, childrenswear and quilts. Liberty Tana Lawn was a natural choice with its fine weave, delicate and inventive patterns, long-wearing colours and traditional English heritage. "
" My studio is a riot of colour and texture, with stacks of crease and blocks, drawers packed with fat quarters and displays of inspiring projects made by staff. The vintage cutting tables' previous life was in a Liberty store.
I am drawn to the sense of tradition and belonging which is fostered by the passing down of quilting skills through the generations. I have a particular passion for creating patterns and combining prints in a rainbow of colourways. "
