Hetties Patch – My Local Quilt Shop

Do you have a Local Quilt Shop, one that you can just drop into and immerse yourself in all things quilting. My Local Quilt Shop is Hetties Patch in Hindmarsh, South Australia. Why don’t you step through the front door and take a look.

It is a quick tram/bus ride from Adelaide and probably 10 minute up the road from my house. Its also easy to swing by on my way home from work and drop in for that all important reel of cotton or piece of fabric that I may have seen flash up on Facebook or Instagram.

Lorraine Lovell has created a wonderful space for quilters to come and while away an hour or two or more if you join in one of the many classes. The front of the shop is always beautifully displayed and she is lucky to have one of the most spacious class room I’ve experienced.

Hetties stocks a wide variety of fabric, including French General, Liberty, Kaffe, batiks and many other current designers. I love the fact that the shop caters for all taste. Even if you love fabric to be bold and adventurous or soft and pastel you will find something to wet your appetite and fit in perfectly with your latest quilt.

Lorraine also stocks linens and fabrics suitable for cross stitch and if you have an embroidery bent Hetties has a number of embroidery threads, including the full range of Cosmo stranded threads, a large variety of Valdani Pearl cottons as well as Aurifil in a number of weights for sewing, machine quilting and hand embroidery.

About Amanda Bergamin

Amanda has been quilting for 20 years and sewing most of her life having learnt from her mum and nana. She started Seabreeze Quilts about 5 years ago designing patterns for her etsy shop. Her favourite technique is needle turn applique, but she also uses machine applique, machine quilting (she quilts all her own quilts usually by machine) and machine piecing. No matter how long Amanda has been quilting she know the value of classes and learning from others. As well as teaching beginners classes, Amanda always makes sure to take at least one or two classes a year, as there hasn’t been a class she has attended where she has not learnt something new from the teacher or other students. Over the last two years she has run a free BOM on her blog seabreezequilts.blogspot.co.nz. Patterns for the month are available for free then up for sale in her etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/seabreezequiltsoz for a small price so you can catch up if you want to join in.
