Welcome to Annie's Country Quilt Store
My aim is to inspire people through my own love of patchwork, quilting and stitching and to create a shop that is warm, friendly and inviting. Annie's Country Quilt Store is based in a 100 year old pioneer cottage on the Main South Road in Tinwald, on the outskirts of Ashburton, a small provincial farming town in New Zealand's South Island.
The cottage lends itself well to the country theme and my love of antiques and collectibles which feature in the shop alongside an excellent range of patchwork fabrics, DMC cotton stitcheries, gifts and patterns sourced from all over the world.
I want my customers to feel welcome to browse, comfortable about asking for help or advice and happy with their purchasing decisions. I also want them to come back and bring their friends!
In Our Latest NewsletterJust landed in store this morning are a whole lot of new extra wide quilt backings. These are 240 cm wide, so generally you just need the width of your quilt plus a little extra to allow for the quilting eliminating the need for extra seams. We now have everything from brights, Kaffe Fasset, Anna-Maria Horner, reproduction, neutrals and Japanese in the backings – they are not always on show, so make sure you ask if you can’t see what you need straight away.
