Star Wars and Disney Fabric


Exciting new fabrics have arrived in the shop this week! Star Wars is back once again, just in time for the release of the new film The Last Jedi, which is due out at cinemas on 18th December. And we’ve also got a few cheeky Disney bolts on the New Fabrics table too, perfect for anyone planning Christmas makes for their kids.


From big panels squares to cheaty block patterns that can be quilted with no hassle, these brand new prints are making the fabric fans very happy already. Take a look at these fabulous designs and tell us what you’d be inspired to make. We’re definitely thinking quilts, bean bags, drawstring bags and of course pyjama bottoms – well, it’s traditional round these parts to think of sewing up cosy pjs at this time of year.

Princess fans will be happy too as this is the first time we’ve had any of the sparkly Disney ladies on any fabric.

All Star Wars and Disney prints are £16.00 a metre and stock is limited – if you see something you want, then get your hands on it quickly as once it’s gone, it’s gone forever!

Star Wars Fabric Now on Sale at Emporia!


Those of you who follow us on Facebook will have received the joyous news yesterday that the long awaited Star Wars fabric has finally arrived in the shop! Gracing our shelves are several big fat bolts of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker themed fantasticness, covered with all kinds of space craft and characters from the iconic films. And as Star Wars obsessives range in age from the very brand new to properly grown up, whether they are sewers or not, just as Obi Wan Kenobi predicted, there will be a disturbance in the force if they don’t get down to Bank Street and into the shop to check out the new designs.

If you are one such obsessive, then fear not – you can be sure that when you arrive at your destination, you will instinctively know which fabrics to choose, without any hint of being drawn over to the Dark Side (choosing all of them).  From curtains, quilts, cushions, pencils cases, bags, lampshade and phone covers to shirts, shorts, skirts and headbands, with this little lot you could quite easily transform your entire life (or someone else’s) into one big Star Wars themed bonanza.


The force is definitely strong with this one: bold, black, white and grey scale illustrations of Darth Vader and Bobba Fett, accompanied by some gun-toting Stormtroopers. Great for those old enough to remember the original films hitting the cinema – Father’s Day is coming up soon, so get thinking what you could make with this to please your old man or your other half.


Dum dum dum, dum de dum, dum de dum – that iconic font spelling out the equally iconic title of the film series would make a perfect filler for Star Wars themed quilts or as a backing for one. All go the whole hog and dress the windows with these blue and black patterns that will let everyone know you are a one of the rebels as soon as they enter the room.


Know someone who obsesses over which space craft is which? This blocked out design features X-Wings, the Millennium Falcon, Tie Fighters and all kinds of other ships, alongside the Star Wars logo, making it an ideal one to use in a quilt. Or even a cheaty quilt where you just sew down the lines. Blue, grey, red and black colours make this a good choice for older kids and teenagers too.


And lastly my personal favourite, that classic seventies style comic book strip of all the characters, including a lovely big close up of Chewbacca. Bright, colourful and full of detail, we can see this one just walking off the shelves and into smaller people’s bedrooms and wardrobes.

All these Star Wars prints are now available from Emporia Fabric & Crafts, at £14.00 a metre.

Star Wars Fabric Special Offer


Exciting news for Star Wars fans this week as we announce that this amazing collection of super sci fi fabrics will be hitting the shelves in less than a month! Eeek! As the seventh in the series is still being filmed just outside London (Harrison Ford’s broken ankle notwithstanding) we know there will be a growing crowd of Star Wars fans across the country getting more and more hyper (space) as they count down the days to the big release. Well, if you have such a fan boy or girl living under your roof, or indeed you’ve been speaking Jawaese like a tiny, hooded sand-dwelling native of Tattooine since you were knee high to an Ewok, then hold onto your Tauntauns and get your pre-orders for the Star Wars fabrics in now!

Coming our way in a matter of weeks, these super duper fantastic prints will be selling for £14.00 a metre, but if you pre-order them now you can get them for the special price of £12.00 a metre – so take a good look at these babies and let us know which ones you want and how many metres. And be quick! We’re only getting hold of limited quantities so be sure you grab some while you can!


Extra cool black and white drawings of Yoda and Darth, plus the instantly recognisable Death Star feature in this ever so contemporary print – we can see this one seducing an awful lot of non-crafters over to the dark side …


Darth Vader, R2D2, the Millennium Falcon and a Tie Fighter all come into the mix in this comic book style layout, interspersed with the iconic Star Wars logo. Grey, blue, black and red make for a quite grown up looking print – great for teenagers and even actual adults.


That iconic font is the sole feature of these striking red and black prints – excellent as fillers for quilts, this style looks Jedi-tastic alongside the comic book selection, bringing together the greyscale with red and blue for a seriously dynamic Star Wars look.

And if comic book prints are your thing, then our headline image will surely be for you – classic black outlines featuring scenes from the films, including Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Bobba Fett and R2D2. Great for smaller designs

STOP PRESS! Also blasting their way onto our shelves very soon are two brilliant girl power prints in the form of Wonder Woman and Bat Girl! They’re also available at the pre-order price of £12.00 a metre, so you can start planning your awesome superhero and sci fi themed makes right now. Kaboom!
