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!

Many of you working on the Dancing Chickens Block of the Month project that we are running, and while you still have your needle poised I thought I would tell you about the new the new BOM project from Anni Downs called “Here, there and Everywhere” which we will be starting soon.
This is a good size quilt 69” x 69” (or 175 cm x 175) and features simple piecing, quirky wool applique, simple piecing and some hexagons for good measure. Anni describes the quilt as “exploring our journey through life....not just where we have been but what we observe along the way”. You can also personalise the quilt by adding your own maps, anecdotes and memories.
