A Piece of Cloth is a vintage and antique textiles sourcing business. Established in 2009 by Jennifer Twitchett-Hyland a graphic designer, A Piece of Cloth travels the world to find interesting and unique textiles. Antique and vintage patchwork quilts, fabrics, tops and other unique textile items. We make these available for sale at events, online or from our studio by appointment.

Each one of the textiles we stock is hand selected on our international buying trips based on the uniqueness and strength of the print. We specialise in pre 1960s printed cottons. We believe in quality not quantity, and as such, many of our fabrics are in very limited supply.

We have an extensive selection of vintage and antique patchwork quilt tops, feed sacks, blocks, patchwork quilts, cutters and fabrics to suit the needs of quilters interested in vintage patchwork and quilting, restoration or just owning a piece of the past.

Public Speaking:

Jennifer is available for talks to groups or at events. With a thirst for history and textiles she can deliver talks on the topics of Textile Travelling, Feedsacks and Social History and Colour and Technology in Textiles. She has spoken at the Victorian Quilters, Australian Quilters and many other groups. Talks and events coming up are the Guest speaker for Stitching our Stories Exhibition and the Australian Embroiders Guild.
