About Us


SewBatik is a direct merchant with a passion for designing, sourcing and distributing exquisite batik and hand dyed fabrics. Our fabrics are only sold on the SewBatik website, at local, regional and national quilt shows, and through our ever-growing relationships with professional longarm/machine quilters around the world. Diane and Bruce Magidson co-founded SewBatik in 2004.



What Makes Us Unique?

Our batik fabrics are created with the same attention to detail that our customers give to their special projects. Designed to be used in a variety of applications, SewBatik fabrics are made using the ancient Indonesian mastery of batik - vivid and rich in color, the perfect complement to your creative genius.
Your imagination knows no limits so we have created 108" wide stamped batik backings and 108" wide hand dyed fabrics - by far the largest assortment in the market. In 2011 we also launched our exclusive collection of 106" wide flannel batik. "Oh - the softest flannel you will ever feel!"
SewBatik is committed to offering the largest selection of coordinating fabrics in the industry. Whether you pick one of our 43" hand dyed rayon to make a jacket, skirt, or shirt; velvety soft 106" wide batik flannels; or 108" wide batik backings, you will choose from a multitude of colors that work harmoniously with many other pieces in our collections.
To assist the artist in you, our collections are designed with the complete project in mind.
Select from a wide array of project kits created with an easy-to-follow pattern and all of the fabric pieces needed to complete the project.
Mix and match on your own, knowing that all SewBatik fabrics are made by master Indonesian craftspeople using the same hand-stamped and hand-dyed techniques for each piece, assuring you continuity in your project.
Our fabrics are special. We will not sacrifice the integrity of our products by mass marketing these unique designs to other companies or specialty quilt shops. You will only find them on our SewBatik website, regional and national quilt shows or at your favorite longarm/machine quilter's studio through our "Longarm Batik Associate" program. We will not retail fabrics on our site or at our sales functions that were produced by other companies.
