Shopping at Quarry Bank

Glass cloth made at Quarry Bank

The mill shop is currently closed as we refurbish it to give you an even better shopping experience. The new shop will be opening in February half term. Don't worry the garden shop is still open with a range of products to discover including gorgeous fabric made on our heritage looms. Delve into our great collection of books all about Quarry Bank, or treat yourself to a bottle of Bollington Beer, brewed in the Cheshire village where William Greg built his cotton mill.

Glass Cloth made at Quarry Bank and available in our shop

Buy a glass cloth

The Victorians had a product for everything – they wouldn’t have dreamed of using the same tea-towel to dry every pot in the house! Calico was highly recommended as the best cloth to give glassware a superb sparkle, and as the Victorians also adored their glassware, along came the glass cloth to do just that. Our glass cloths are woven on the heritage looms here in the mill from 100% cotton thread, and we’ll let you into a secret – they’re glass cloths which make brilliant tea-towels as well.

Get crafty with our fabric packs from Quarry Bank

Get Crafty

It’s not often you can say that the fabric you’ve just bought for your craft project was woven in Cheshire! But we can, and we’re really proud of it. We sell our loom and handwoven fabric as patchwork packs, fat quarter bundles and metre-square pieces for convenience but if your project needs more than a metre, we can cut to any size you’d like. So why not make a patch-work throw, cushions, decorations and much more.

Or follow Henry Greg’s example and buy a bottle of Mr. Fitzpatrick’s temperance cordials or mocktails.
