About Poppy Patch

As best friends we fell in love with Poppy Patch having attended a beginners patchwork course, not together I might add. Mary told me about the wonderful world of Patchwork and Quilting having been on Helen Spence’s beginners course at Poppy Patch and I signed up on the next one immediately.  Mary had been taught to sew by her Mother at the age of six  but had never attempted Patchwork; I had never sewn before! We both loved it so much we subsequently bought Poppy Patch at the beginning of 2015 and have never looked back. The shop and workshop nestle in a pretty converted barn in a rural setting in the village of Great Doddington near Wellingborough. Our little shop is packed to the rafters with all the things we love including quilting fabrics, patterns, kits, notions, embroidery kits, threads, waddings and an abundance of Australian patterns which we just cannot resist.

We are always looking to find new stock to inspire our customers. We have quality 100% cotton fabric from some great designers and manufacturers including  Lynette Anderson, Annie Downs, Liberty, Michael Miller, Cotton & Steel, Makower, Stof and Moda to name a few.

The workshops are held Upstairs at Poppies in the spacious light filled area above the fabric shop. We like to offer a wide variety of courses to entice others with a similar passion or curiosity for needlework and crafting.

We would love to see you sometime so please pop in and have a look around.
