The Bramble Patch is Britain’s premier destination for patchwork, quilting and fabric arts, located in the heart of England in the pretty village of Weedon on the Grand Union Canal in Northamptonshire.
Established 1987, we are patchwork & quilting specialists –
the quilter’s quilt shop.
Whether your interest is in modern quilts, contemporary quilts, art quilts or traditional quilts, we cater for you with a fantastic range of designer, quality craft fabric and other supplies for quilting, bag making, dressmaking and home decor.
As well as a large and well-stocked patchwork fabric, haberdashery and sewing supplies shop, we have classes and workshops with British and international teachers in the large, airy classrooms in our converted church premises, two long-arm quilting machines offering a professional quilting and basting service, and a programme of exhibitions, demonstrations, and events throughout the year.
The Conservatory Coffee Shop serves Italian-style coffees, tea and other hot drinks, light lunches, handmade cakes and cream teas. We also offer special Afternoon Tea for pre-booked groups.
Add our unique project kits, new fabrics arriving weekly, customer loyalty rewards, the friendly and knowledgeable Bramble Babes, specialist books and magazines, and a range of discounted fabric on the mezzanine overlooking the classrooms, and you’ll start to understand why visitors travel from all over the UK, Europe and abroad to visit us.
