About visiting the shop in person

I just wanted to thank the staff

I just wanted to thank the staff including the lady in the coffee shop for their kindness and support when I visited a week ago. I am busy on the projects and have started the Christmas tree skirt. Thanks again.

Thank you to all at Bramble Patch - what a dream team!

Having arrived back from Edwina Mackinnon's day workshop 'Machine Quilting for the Terrified', I felt that I had to write to say . . .

- Thank you for the prompt and efficient way that you dealt with my application for the workshop

- Thank you to the café staff for the delicious lunch choices and ongoing refreshments! It was so difficult choosing that I will have to do some more workshops to sample their wonderful food choices!

- Thank you to Edwina for the interesting course that she delivered. It was great to not only see the skills in reality but also to have her share her expert knowledge and to hear her hints, shortcuts, etc. I am now trying hard to push up my practise time to 1000 hours in the hope of gaining more confidence and developing my skills!

Thank you to all at Bramble Patch - what a dream team!

It's like speaking to a friend

Thank you to the people who I spoke to on the phone, you were so helpful. Thank you the person who quilted my quilt – it's marvellous, and I'm so very pleased. Thank you also to the lady who put the binding on and rang to say my quilt was ready. Thank you all, it's like speaking to a friend! I know you all must care for the quilts you quilt.

I am so thrilled

Please could you pass on my thanks to the ladies in the quilting room. I am so thrilled with the quilt that you have just quilted and bound for me. It is absolutely beautiful and I know that if I had tried for a hundred years I would never have achieved the wonderful results you produced.

Many thanks and in future will have all my large quilts finished by you ladies. Will spread the word about how professional and good you all are.

About our workshops

Completely inspiring

In 2007, I attended a workshop with Mary Mayne at The Bramble Patch. I found this completely inspiring. It marked the beginning of a journey, and now I am teaching and exhibiting creative textiles.

Always a pleasure to visit The Bramble Patch

Always a pleasure to visit The Bramble Patch. Wonderful fabrics, especially my favourites, batiks and children’s designs. Displays of quilts are always inspirational as are the workshops.

I can't wait to come again

I've spent the last three days at your wonderful shop meeting lots of nice people and learning some new skills in dress making with Linda, and I just felt I needed to contact you to say a huge thank you and I can't wait to come again, hopefully the conservatory will be finished then I can make a day of fabric buying! Thanks again.

Another wonderful enlightening day. You certainly put on some awe-inspiring displays of work, and this time was no exception and quite moving to see such varied work produced so many years ago. Thank you, and here’s to the next Quilt Heritage Day.
