A little bit about us........
Our small family business selling patchwork and quilting supplies and
haberdashery items began just over three years ago in a converted granary
in the village of Hellingly, East Sussex.
A year passed, the business grew and it was time to look for a bigger home for The Pumpkin Patch.
In May 2003, the chance came to take over a premises in St Mary’s Walk,
just off the High Street in the nearby historic market town of Hailsham.
Now, two years later, ‘The Pumpkins’ are going from strength to strength.
With a range of nearly 1000 bolts of 100% cotton patchwork fabrics (including ranges from Timeless Treasures, Moda and Makower), a number of different waddings and stocks of Gutterman and YLI cottons and quilting threads, there are temptations to be found for any patchworker or quilter.
We also keep an ever increasing range of Anchor embroidery threads
and tapestry wools.
Our selection of knitting wools is rapidly expanding and currently
includes Foxy, Funky Fur, Denim Ultra and New Fizz from Sirdar and the
more traditional Double Knit, Aran Chunky and 4-ply from both Sirdar
and King Cole.

Our haberdashery department holds an array of items, from needles and pins to hooks and eyes. We sell buttons, zips, sequins and beads and SO MUCH MORE!
Please click on the HABERDASHERY button to view our full catalogue and price list, which we update regularly.
As well as the shop, we also run a range of courses on patchwork, quilting
and other crafts. Our teachers can cater for students of all abilities,
from the patchwork novice to the more experienced machine quilter.
