New Trading Hours...

Today the 7th of April marks our 9th anniversary as owners of Somerset Patchwork (formerly the Craft Cottage). The old saying that time moves faster the older we get is very true. Where have the past 9 years gone to? We have been through many changes during that time; starting with our fabric choices... in the early days we were well known for our Robyn Pandolph and Moda fabrics; now as many of you know, we specialise in a large and comprehensive range of Reproduction fabrics. Our projects have changed over the years as well - from simple large-patch quilts to antique-inspired intricate designs.

The latest change is to our trading hours - we will no longer be open on Mondays. This will give us more time to sew, design and create new projects as well as hatch a few more hair-brained schemes!

New Trading Hours

Tuesday - Saturday   9.30am - 5.00pm
Sunday - Monday   CLOSED

The Easter long weekend will also give me a chance to pore over these beautiful books that arrived in the post this last week from the International Quilt Study Centre, Nebraska. I'm not allowed to get too inspired just yet, not until I have finished the two (or more...shhhhhh!!!) quilts currently nearing completion!

Enjoy your Easter break, I hope the Easter Bunny comes for a visit!


  1. The new hours sounds very sensible you need creative time to yourself - luv that floral - can only imagine what you will come up with next - something with tiny bits!!!! More madness!! Helen F

  2. Those books look great.

    Happy Easter, Karen.

  3. Congratulations - and well done on the new hours. Can't wait to see what you come up with in your new "spare"(!!) time.
