A love of fabric, sewing, creativity and a need to replicate a grandmother’s story; this was the backdrop of opening my first Bricks and Mortar shop in 2005.
Hearing stories from my maternal grandmother about her General Store/s which included Fabric and Haberdashery and her connection with Community especially during the Depression era fascinated me as a young child.
Her hands were always busy…… cooking ,sewing, stitching, gardening, painting and caring for her family.
My hands need to busy……
Patch n Quilt is my “happy ” place.
Selecting fabric, sewing fabric, making quilts, embroidery, slow stitching and retailing gives me great pleasure.
My fabric stock and style is quite extensive from Modern and Contemporary to Reproductions , Linens and the most beautiful Liberty.
My haberdashery range including embroidery threads and the introduction of commercial wool , fills my shop.
I hope that the pleasure l have in my shop, Patch n Quilt, is relayed in the welcoming of my customers from far and wide.
