About

F&W Media International is the UK based, wholly owned subsidiary of F+W Media Inc.

Our company was originally founded on 1st April 1960 and for 50 years traded under the name of David & Charles. Many David & Charles books remain in print today but the company was rebranded to become F&W Media International Ltd in 2010. Our Head Office is in Exeter.

We are one of the leading publishers in the craft category, with our new books publishing under our SewandSo imprint. The SewandSo brand is also home to the UKs largest online Needlecraft business, a business we operate from our site in Tewksbury.

Our business is closely linked to our parent company, F+W Media Inc. We distribute all F+W Media books in the UK and in international export markets. This includes the books published by our leading brands such as Interweave, Quilting Company, Artist’s Network and Writer’s Digest. You can search all of our titles here.

We have a long standing partnership with Dover Publications, where we work with Target Sales as exclusive UK distributors.

In June 2017, we launched a partnership with the Royal School of Needlework at rsnonlinecourses.com. This breakthrough offer provides video training in embroidery technique online, alongside an accompanying physical product kit.

Coming soon is our assisted publishing model, whereby self-published illustrated publishers can work with us to access the potential of our global books distribution and supply chain.

We are an open, entrepreneurial and collaborative business and always welcome new ideas for all of our businesses. You can contact us here.
