Quilting Fabric Shop in County Durham - The Little Quilt Shop
My passion for sewing started at school and progressed to dress making and quilting. With over 30 years experience of fabrics, design and fashion a life long ambition was to establish my own quilting fabric shop in County Durham.
In 2020 this became a reality. I have been able to channel my passion for quilting and fabrics not just in retail but also teaching quilting techniques in my dedicated ‘Craft Room’.
I offer quilting classes for the absolute beginner looking to learn to quilt, to more advanced classes and one day workshops. In a one day workshop, you can expect to produce a quilted cushion, table runner or other similar smaller projects which can be completed during the class.
Classes are initially run in small groups so we can implement Covid safety measures for everyone. Please contact me to find out about our next availability.
What makes The Little Quilt shop different to other quilting shops?
My priority to help and advise my customers, on choosing the most suitable fabric for your project, learning new skills and introducing time saving tools which will help you achieve a more professional final product. You are always welcome in my shop, but if you live further afield, you can order quilting fabrics and accessories / tools online. Your package will be dispatched on the same day (postage allowing) so you can start your project sooner rather than later.
Quilting has many therapeutic benefits, allowing you to clear your mind, develop your creativity and learn new skills. It is a hobby you can do anywhere with a sense of pride and achievement when you finish your project.
