About Berry Quilt & Co.
Here at Berry Quilt & Co. we are all about being surrounded by beautiful fabric, celebrating handmade and having fun. Along the way we 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 fast gained a reputation as a friendly and welcoming bricks and mortar store with lots going on.
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.
