Rainbow Patchwork has recently reopened as a quilting service in McLeans Ridges, after originally opening in Lismore on Mothers Day, May 2011 . Over the last 12 years Rainbow Patchwork has weathered three major floods, the COVID pandemic, and economic changes. Consequently, our shop front on Union Street closed in July 2023.
After discovering a love for patchwork in the 90s, Karen's passion has grown. She has since become an expert in patchwork design, production, and teaching. These pursuits will continue at the new premises. All of the quilts on display, both past and present, are Karen's own handiwork. She skillfully quilts them using her Gammil long arm machine.
We've long been proud to be a patchwork specialist shop, carrying over 3000 bolts of fabric. However, times have changed. We now offer only quilting services, a wide array of wide-backed fabrics (270cm wide), as well as economical 5m fabric packs of quality fabrics. Additionally, we carry various types of wadding as well as a modest collection of quilting kits.
