About Berry Quilt & Co.
Hi There! Welcome to Berry Quilt & Co!
We are a busy bricks and mortar patchwork and quilting store in the historic village of Berry on the NSW South Coast. We have a full calendar of classes and groups, love to run exhibitions and events, have a growing online store and pride ourselves on being a super friendly and helpful store for quilters and sewists of all levels.
We are all about being surrounded by beautiful fabric, celebrating handmade, having fun and of course making, using or gifting colourful, cozy quilts. We are on a journey with you to learn new skills, build confidence, create beautiful things, inspire each other and make friends!
Established by Elizabeth Dubbelde in 1999, we have always been a popular destination for local quilters and holiday-makers. The business was purchased in early 2016 by Sharon & John Thomson. Trading under the new name Berry Quilt & Co, we have gained a reputation as a friendly and welcoming bricks and mortar store with lots going on.
In 2018, we were lucky to expand into a the next door shop, creating a much larger and brighter, beautiful store space. We opened an online store in 2018. The business has now been serving the town of Berry and surrounds for more than 21 years and continues to grow!

Shop for fabrics & supplies
We have a large and always changing range of popular fabrics as well as hard to find gems. We regularly stock Moda ranges and precuts which rub shoulders with Free Spirit fabrics: Kaffe Fasset, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and Tula Pink. We love Cotton & Steel, Alexander Henry, Art Gallery Fabrics and Alison Glass and Blend by Anna Griffin. We also keep one of the best collections of traditional Japanese fabrics and printed sashiko panels around. We have a great range of quilting supplies, equipment, kits and patterns. Be inspired by our newly developed range of dressmaking patterns, linens, lawns and double gauze and cotting canvas from Kokka. Or go crazy for our exciting new line of bagmaking supplies, patterns and equipment from ByAnnie.com.
Meet the teachers
Be inspired by the very best teachers from near and far! We run a diverse program of regular and special one-off workshops, hosting experienced tutors who work in a wide range of styles, approaches and media. Their work is exciting, inspiring and designed to begin or extend your sewing or quilting practice.
Sheena has been teaching patchwork and quilting for over 20 years and has an irresistibly exuberant style. Her quilts draw inspiration from vintage quilts and textiles and she has a great eye for combining op-shop finds with contemporary fabrics in improvised designs. She’s a prolific maker coming to each class with plenty of show and tell! New makers and makers wanting to loosen up will enjoy Sheena’s approach to quilt making.
