We specialise in beautiful Batiks and hand dyed fabrics. You can shop on-line or see all the fabrics at Thorpe & Co Sewing Machines, 15 Main Road, Boolaroo, NSW. Sign up for the newsletter to keep up to date with new fabrics, products, classes, and special deals on your quilting supplies. Classes will be run at Thorpes on the 3rd Friday, Saturday and Monday of each month and you can book in now. 

As a Quiltworx Certified Shop, we carry all the Quiltworx patterns and teach all of Judy Niemeyer's sensational tips and techniques.  I am now a Certified Instructor for Quiltworx patterns, so I can come to your local quilt group to do a workshop on any of these patterns.

We also stock McKenna Ryan patterns and kits; Quiltsmart patterns and bags and Jacqueline deJonge's patterns as well as her entire palette of stunning hand dyed fabrics.

Don't forget to sign up for the newsletter and like us on Facebook! And if you are in Newcastle, drop in and see all our beautiful fabrics!

Upcoming Classes

In 2019 we will be starting the beautiful new Quiltworx Technique of the Month: Dinner Plate Dahlia at both of the above mentioned shops. The pattern will be available on Quiltster from January 1st.
