In time for the In-House Exhibition, we will be showing many more highlight fabrics!

We are so looking forward to spending six amazing days with you in Nordhorn.


These fabrics may be purchased exclusively to our registered wholesale customers only during the  In-House Exhibition, while supplies last. We’re sorry, be we will not be accepting any telephone or email orders for these fabrics and will not place any stock on hold.

Following the Exhibition, any remaining stock will be listed in the Swafing Online Shop and may be purchased there on a first-come, first-served basis.

Beautiful fabrics and a really exciting Workshop program!

New! On each day of the In-House exhibition, you may take part in some really neat Workshops. Three different Workshops will be held on two days each during the In-House Exhibition. Our Workshops will be held continuously throughout the day–no sign-up required.



Monday and Tuesday, August 26th and 27th – Pattarina Sewing Pattern App
with Nora Baum, Pattarina

Pattarina is a brand new app designed to transfer your sewing pattern directly to your fabric! No more printing out and taping together! The pattern pieces appear on your smart device and you simply transfer them to you fabric. You’ll get to sewing so much quicker.



Using Pattarina, it is also very easy to position your sewing pattern pieces on large-scale prints or border prints. Try it out for yourself at the In-House Exhibition: Stitch up either a pretty new skirt or top from the brand new book “Nähen mit Pattarina” (German language only, release date August 2019, TOPP / Frechverlag) using Cherry Picking’s latest design “Confetti Storm”.

Cherry Picking’s “Confetti Storm” in satin will be available for pre-order in the Collections tent. Delivery slated for mid-November.
