Welcome to Elm Grove Patchwork
I do hope you have time to sit and wander around the pages of this site. I specialise in reproduction fabric and fabric suited to producing quilts from a past era. I strive to offer high quality fabric, tools and service so you in turn can make exquisite quilts for your family and friends to enjoy for many years to come. If there is anything you cannot find or need assistance with, please do not hesitate to drop me an email or give me a call. I am more than happy to take your order over the phone if on-line ordering is proving too difficult. Please follow me on Instagram and like my Facebook page to keep up with what is happening around the shop. The content on these two pages are different, my blog feeds onto Facebook but not instagram. Thanks for visiting, I do hope to see you again.
* The shop front is currently closed due to Covid19 and Stage 3 restrictions. On-line orders remain open and will be dispatched as normal. The shop will reopen when Stage 3 restrictions are lifted. * Thanks for your understanding.
Every now and then an iconic range of fabric arrive in store. You know these fabrics are only going to be available for a limited time, but will be sought after for many years to come. Incredibly I have two of these ranges, both arriving at the same time.
The Jane Austen at Home range has just arrived. Rile Blake designs have worked in collaboration with Jane Austen House, to reproduce the fabrics used in the coverlet made by world favourite author Jane Austen, her sister Cassandra and their mother. This range is an exact replica of the original fabrics and includes two panels. The centre diamond panels include the large diamond used in the centre of the quilt, and the border panel has the 2500plus small diamonds that make up the borders. Riley Blake have also made available a commemorative boxed kit that includes the pattern, templates and all fabric to make the coverlet or quilt, only the backing fabric is not included. The boxed kits will not be arriving until September, along with some other Jane Austen merchandise.
The other new arrival is Anne's English Scrapbox, designed by Di Ford-Hall. Sadly we lost Di to this world on April 17th this year. Her fabric collections have always delighted us, and this one is no different. Know it is her last is terribly sad and I have felt a deep sense of loss as I have unpacked this range. It is absolutely beautiful and I can only imagine the stunning quilts Di would have made with it. I know it will sell fast, but I will restock as soon as stock is replenished in the coming months.
