Our Patchwork Shop
The Cotton Patch is a family run patchwork and quilting shop which was started in 1990. The shop is situated in Hall Green, Birmingham and expanded in 1999 to include the shop next door. Started by Jean Sewell in 1999 there are now over thirty full-time and part-time staff.
The feel that we have tried to create for the shop is of an Aladdin's Cave dedicated to patchwork and quilting. That means that not only are there beautiful fabric ranges on display but all the notions, gadgets, haberdashery and aids that make up the patchwork and quilting hobby are also available. There are books which inspire initial creation through to hangers allowing you to display your finished quilts.
The heart of a patchwork and quilting shop is its fabric collection and we have over 2000 fabric bolts on display in our shop. There are fabrics from most major manufacturers such as Rowan, Free Spirit, Makower, Moda, Hoffman, Robert Kaufman, Dashwood Studio, Lewis and Irene and more. There are over 300 fabrics from designer Kaffe Fassett alone. As well as being able to purchase off the bolt we also stock a wide selection of pre-cut charms, fat quarter packs, jelly rolls, strips rolls and layer cakes.
All of our patchwork and quilting books and magazines are available to purchase from our online store (books). If you come to the shop you can browse through our patchwork books and the latest magazines.
The Cotton Patch shop is ably served by a dedicated and hardworking workforce. Our staff are patchwork and quilters themselves and can help with insight and advice from picking fabrics to explaining the function of the latest notions.
