Welcome to Calico Kate!
About Calico Kate
Established in 2002, Calico Kate has gained a reputation as an 'Aladdin's Cave' for patchworkers, dressmakers, knitters and embroiderers.
In a building full of charm and character, you can now wander through twelve
rooms of fabric, haberdashery and yarn, in a relaxed
and homely atmosphere.
Calico Kate is in Lampeter's High Street, next to the handsome Town Hall.
We have just added another Janome sewing machine, the 2200XT (below), to our Christmas offers: see the full range under Sewing Machines. Stocks are limited, so don' t delay!
