Quilts outside The Bramble Patch

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.

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.

Established 1987, we are quilting specialists – the quilter's quilt shop.

As well as a large and well-stocked patchwork fabric, haberdashery and sewing supplies shop, we have daily 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, events and charity fundraising throughout the year.

Add our in-house designed project and quilt kits, new fabrics arriving weekly, customer loyalty rewards, a friendly and knowledgeable team, and free tea and coffee on our café-style mezzanine overlooking the classrooms, and you'll start to understand why visitors travel from all over the UK, Europe and abroad to visit us.

Why not come see for yourself everything on offer? The coffee pot is on and we'd love to meet you!
