Whether it be traditional patchwork prints or modern fabric designs you are after, we are sure to have something to suit you!
Love Stitching also stocks an extensive range of haberdashery supplies specific to the needs of quilters.
Love Stitching is a family run business with Core Values being:
Taught to sew on her Grandmother’s knee, Lynn has been sewing since the tender age of three! Her first sewing machine was a present from her Mum when she was in her teens and that was when she became totally hooked on the endless possibilities of patchwork!
A registered staff nurse and a qualified midwife, Lynn’s lifelong passion for sewing officially ‘took over’ when the doors to Love Stitching opened in September 2012.
With both a City and Guilds Certificate in ‘Soft Furnishings’ (2008) and a City and Guilds Certificate in ‘Patchwork and Quilting’ (2016) under her belt, Lynn is very well equipped to provide Love Stitching customers with expert knowledge and advice at all stages of their patchwork journey.
Having been a patchworker for over thirty years, Lynn also knows the importance of only using quality supplies which is why Love Stitching only stocks 100% ‘premium grade’ cotton patchwork fabrics.
William provides the technical knowledge required to run Love Stitching’s website and ensures that online orders are dispatched to customers.
Years of listening to Lynn give patchwork and sewing advice means that William is also well placed to assist shop customers and, as he uploads all of the fabric ranges onto Love Stitching’s website, he has a complete knowledge of the fabulous fabrics on Love Stitching’s shelves.
