We are so very excited to bring to you one of our latest ranges... Fabric by the Metre. We are even more excited to tell you that this gorgeous collection of fabrics has made it's debut on Simply Sewing Magazines January 2021 Pinboard! See above!

We absolutely adore fabrics at Secret Projects! Over the years, we have found some excellent fabric suppliers and have often dreamt of offering our customers the opportunity to buy wonderful material from India.  Through our Customer Trips, over 20 of our customers have travelled with us to India and experienced some magical fabric buying adventures, as we took them to visit markets and suppliers! Yet, we knew that not everyone can jump on a plane with us... One of our Customers then gave us a great idea, when she asked why didn't we think about selling fabric through our on-line retail stores and we jumped on it! Now we can give everyone the opportunity for a similar fabric buying adventure on-line. 

There are 32 fabrics in our wonderful range from brights to pastels and lot more colours and shades in between! Whether you are looking for gorgeous florals, bold and strong abstracts or cute animal prints, our Fabric by the Metre range will not disappoint.To be introduced to our Fabric by the Metre collections, please go to our our website: secretprojects.org and click on Shop & Travel to shop in GBP, Euros and US Dollars.Have so much creative fun selecting yours and don't forget to let us see what you have made!

Make and sell a product and contribute some or all of the profits to Secret Projects

Make and sell a product and contribute some or all of the profits to Secret Projects

We were over the moon when a student of a teacher who had travelled with us to India on a 'Teachers Trip' was so inspired by the tales her tutor had . . . to tell, that she immediately wanted to help in some way. And this is what Charlotte did... she came up with her very own 'Secret Project' and put together a cookery book of Indian recipes.  Many of the recipes came from Nirmala, the Director of Secret Products India and Charlottle had it printed beautifully and sold copies to other teachers who had been on the trip, as well as her friends and family and contributed all profits to Secret Projects. Once again, this is yet another great example of how people can get involved and contribute to our vision of a world where all women have the confidence and resources to make choices, thrive and contribute to the strengthening of their communities. Please get in touch with you ideas for your own 'Secret Project', we can't wait to hear them! Please complete the form here.

Raise your contribution to Secret Projects by organising a sponsored event

There are many ways to make a contribution to our vision of a world where all women have the confidence and resources to make choices, thrive and . . . contribute to the strengthening of their communities. One way is to organise your own event or activity. Please read on... We are lucky to be surrounded by a large and powerful community.  These community members often choose to ask their friends and family members to sponsor an event or activity they have organised to raise contributions towards our vision. The money contributed from these activities will be used wisely in a number of ways as follows: Running of our 4 stage Virtual Training for Empowerment Programme Working with existing and new Maker Community Development of new Secret Products. The sale of Secret Products is the core driver of our mission to empower We were delighted when one of our community, Cinnamon ran the New York Marathon to honour the life of her mother and to raise money for Secret Projects. Here is what Cinnamon had to say about her experience: 'Inge was a formidable woman who was the definition of empowerment. She left Austria at 19, raised her children as a single mother, travelled to India where she trained to become a professional yoga instructor. Incredibly creative, stylish, wise, outspoken and unique – a force to be reckoned with! Countless people have told me what an inspiration Inge was to their lives, it is clear that her intellect and spiritual awareness touched many people. I decided to raise money for a cause that truly represents everything that we are celebrating about Inge and Secret Projects embodies it all.' Thank you to everyone who organises their own sponsored events and also to those who support them in their efforts!
