Hi, I'm Janet, the new owner of The Corner Patch; I took over at the beginning at May 2019 from Jane Alcock who has owned the shop for the past 7 years. I have been a dressmaker all my life (and am also a knitter, spinner and felter) and started patchworking and quilting a few years ago. I then found out how addictive it can be!
When I heard that The Corner Patch was for sale I called into the shop to try to make a decision about buying it. I stood in the shop, surrounded by all the gorgeous fabrics and couldn't resist. I felt like a child in a sweet shop!
The Corner Patch is an amazing patchwork & quilting shop in the historic country town of Eccleshall, Staffordshire. It is hard to believe the range of fabrics that are fitted into the compact space available. It is one of many independent shops within the town, which combine to make Eccleshall a delightful place to visit and shop.
We offer a fabulous range of 100% cotton fabric, a small range of dressmaking fabric, wadding, threads, haberdashery and notions for all your patchwork, quilting and sewing needs.
You will receive a warm welcome in our shop and we are happy to spend time with you discussing your fabric needs, help you with your project or show you how to get started.
Our aim is to encourage and inspire you with all your sewing projects and we offer a full range of workshops and classes for all ages and abilities. From hand piecing to machine quilting, dress making and basic sewing techniques - there is something for everyone.
The full programme of our classes and workshops is on the website Please contact us (details below) for full details and to book. We limit workshops to a maximum of six participants to ensure everyone has personal attention and can proceed at their own pace whether a beginner of more experienced. We also offer individual tuition if you prefer; this can be on all sewing related topics - getting to know your sewing machine, introduction to patchwork, dressmaking for beginners, making cushions using zips and piping - and much more. Tuition is just £10 / hour and will be arranged at a mutually convenient time.
We also have a series of 'Sit and Sew' sessions for you to come and enjoy a relaxed sewing session in the company of like-minded people. Each session costs just £5 which includes use of our computerised sewing machines, rulers, cutting mat and rotary cutter, tea or coffee and biscuits. Again booking is essential as space is limited. Sessions take place on:
Wednesday 10am - 1pm, 2pm - 5pm, 5.30pm - 8.30pm
Friday 10am -1pm, 2pm - 5pm.
