About Us

Welcome to Rainbow Patchwork!

Rainbow Patchwork is a specialist patchwork and quilting store owned and managed by Karen. 

Rainbow Patchwork first opened on Mothers Day in May 2011 and are still up and running 11 years later. There have been many changes over this time, but at our core we are a patchwork store selling fabric, patterns and notions with a long-arm quilting service. There are lots of quilts filling the shop illustrating different fabric ranges and techniques both of patchwork and quilting designs.
 
Karen has been teaching patchwork since the mid 1990’s and continues to enjoy designing, making and teaching patchwork. All the quilts displayed in the shop are made by Karen and quilted on the Gammil long arm quilting machine.
 
Glenda joined Rainbow Patchwork in 2013 and also enjoys making patchwork and helping customers find just what they need.
 
We used to boast to having over 3000 bolts of fabric in our store, but due to the 2022 Flood Disaster in Lismore the majority of our fabric was ruined. We are building up our stocks which now include:
 
  • Indigenous fabrics
  • Australiana fabrics
  • Solids (Devonstone and Bella)
  • Devonstone Building Blocks
  • Ranges from Moda
  • Jelly rolls and 2.5" strips
  • Layer cakes and 10" squares
  • Bright fabrics including the Kaffe Collective and Tula Pink
  • 108" backing fabrics

Karen designs many quilts and these are often available as kits. 

In addition to building up our fabric stock, we are also building up our supply of notions including rulers, templates, cutters, paper pieces, patterns, pins, markers and threads.
