Sister Mintaka


We are at the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham. Come and see us!
We’re busy packing orders this afternoon. I’d forgotten how beautiful this Nani Iro fabric is. heart_eyes
Today we are cutting into this beautiful Rifle Paper Co rayon. It’s luxuriously soft and drapes so well. There’s only 1 meter left. Perfect for an Ogden Cami!

Who is Sister Mintake?

Sister Mintaka is the one of three stars. Have you spotted them in the nights sky? They all align in a diagonal line and form Orion's Belt. These three stars are often referred to as the Three Sisters. The highest star of the three is called Mintaka, and that's how we came up with our store's name; Sister Mintaka.

It's wonderful to be able to name our shop after our favourite thing in the universe.

Our second favourite thing is fabric! We are just just like the rest of you fabric addicts. Our personal stashes are incredibly curated collections... or at least that's how I like to think of my stash. I don't know what the others would say about that!

Our passion for shopping for fabrics and searching the globe for the best pieces, leads to the beginning of our store. We don't have huge bolts of fabric, so once a fabric is listed it might quickly sell out! If something is super popular we will try to source more, but most of the time you'll find one offs here. My tip: Grab it while you can!

We are currently in the process of setting up our social media channels, and building our website. There's so much to do, but we want to make it perfect for you. In the meantime we'll be selling on Etsy as we just want to get the stock out and available to you.

We are expecting some very exciting deliveries, and I want you to be able to get your hands on some very special fabrics, before anyone else in the UK gets them too. (That's the plan anyway!)

Be sure to follow us on our social media accounts below. Just so you know we are big Instagram fans, so you'll see most of our posts on there.

Sizing details

Fabrics have a tendency to shrink when washed or steamed. It is advisable to prewash your fabrics before starting your projects. Sister Mintaka is not liable for shrinkage of fabrics.
