Thank You!

We’ve been nominated by you in the category

Best Online Retailer in this year’s British Sewing Awards!

British Sewing Awards 2014


Obviously we’d love to win in this category, and we’d love to see one of you win the £250.00 prize that’s on offer.

We know that we’d never have this nomination if not for you, and we want to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt and sincere thanks for getting us this far.

Quilt Direct is a dedicated Quilting online retailer. Our goal is to be an informative online resource as well as an online retail shop for quilters and thread users.  Most of you know that we at Quilt Direct are passionate quilters, and we love using the products we sell – in fact we’d never dream of selling anything we couldn’t sincerely recommend. It is wonderful for us to see our customers develop as quilters. We like to think we’re more than a shop – we’re a part of a warm and friendly quilting community. Thank you all for being a part of that community too!





The Knitting & Stitching Show is the largest and most highly regarded textiles and craft event in the UK and it’s your opportunity to share your love of textiles with others.
Whatever your craft passion it is the perfect place to find inspiration, learn new skills and shop for all your essential supplies.

This year’s Knitting & Stitching show starts today, 8 October 2014 and is on for 5 days until Sunday 12 October 2014 at Alexandra Palace in London.

Exhibitions, galleries and workshops offer something for everyone into ‘Knitting and Stitching’ – fabrics, yarns, techniques, inspiration, it is all here!

There’s even a knitted pergola – a group of knitters from Norfolk have created this 10-feet tall, six-sided Pergola covered with hundreds of knitted colorful flowers, leaves and wildlife.

The free Fashion Show sponsored by Coats takes place in the Great Hall under the Organ everyday at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.00pm

If all that knitting and stitching makes you hungry then take a break, and head into the beautifully tranquil Londesborough Room for a breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.

Quilt Direct won’t be there this year but we’d love to hear about your experiences if you do go.
