Like Doctor Who's Tardis the Wisteria Patchwork shop seems deceptively small on the outside but you walk into another world on the inside! Catering for the beginner to the hardened professional quilter alike we have well over 5,000 bolts of 100% cotton craft fabrics, American prints, hundreds of batiks, plenty of Japanese style fabric, plaids and brushed cottons,children's fabric, kits, cutting and measuring equipment, lots of different waddings, patterns and notions...... and the list goes on.
The shop is staffed by Irene, Margaret, Joy and Carol all of whom are very competent and knowledgeable quilters and know the stock well. They are always very willing to help when you visit.

The Teacher and Owner
The owner of Wisteria Patchwork is Lynne Carter who also tutors the workshops. Lynne has over 19 years experience as a quilter, shopkeeper and tutor, first starting her business in the village of Codicote in Hertfordshire before moving to Lincolnshire 12 years ago and literally 'setting up shop' again in the grounds of her home at Chestnut Farm.
Lynne teaches both traditional and modern ways of patchwork and quilting and often explores alternative methods of achieving high standard results. Quality, accuracy, faster and easier are hallmarks of Lynne's work.
Lynne also travels a lot to deliver courses to other quilt groups as well as being a speaker to clubs and groups both quilting and otherwise.
Also an active member of the local W.I., being the President of Collingham W.I. and a Parish Councillor for Swinderby Parish Council.
