Fabric Club

It is with mixed feelings that we wish to announce that the May 2024 issue of our 19th Century Fabric Samplings Club will be the last mailout.

Our 19th Century Fabric Samplings Club was designed to provide you with a regular sampling pack of the latest reproduction fabrics, without being too harsh on the budget. The aim was to help build your fabric stash with the latest fabrics as they come into the shop, so that you could see what’s available for the projects you are contemplating.

Our bi-monthly mailout of sixteen 10” squares of recently released reproduction fabric commenced in July 2008! It surprises and impresses us that this initiative has lasted for 16 years, thanks solely to the support of customers like yourself. Over the years, we have had 995 customers subscribe to this club – some for just a few mailouts while others have been with us for the entire journey. We cannot thank you enough for this support and the positive responses and encouragement that we have received.

Ultimately, we are wanting to devote our time and efforts more to Karen’s own creative side, focusing on the design of new reproduction fabric lines and traditional quilt patterns. Combining these activities with attending quilt show events, as well as Karen’s teaching and workshop schedules both here and overseas are certainly going to keep Somerset Patchwork & Quilting busy for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to source reproduction fabrics released by quality designers and production houses and these will be available to order online and by telephone. And as stated above, we hope in time to add new collections designed by Karen to our offerings.
