Sandra Crow and her husband took over existing business Tudor Rose Patchwork back in 2008. Their ambition was to build the business as a craft brand that people know and love, both locally and further afield.
Their busy craft shop, online shop, popular products and two workshop rooms, which see a constant flow of workshops and classes throughout the year, are testament to an ambition realised.
Tudor Rose Patchwork is Bedfordshire’s answer to a quilter’s dream. They stock Pfaff and Janome sewing machines along with many of the accessories for these machines.
Their stall at the Makit LQ&N Fair and shop itself offers a huge range of patchwork fabrics, accessories, kits, patterns, a good selection of ‘how-to’ books for patchworkers and quilters to get their next big project from.
They also sell an extensive range of beads and beadworking accessories as well as books on beading and jewellery-making.
If you’re looking for haberdashery then Tudor Rose Patchwork is also the place to come. They stock needles, tapestry and embroidery cottons, yarns, kits and more.
Work with glitter film at the Tudor Rose Patchwork Make & Take
Tudor Rose Patchwork is particularly well-known for its range of heat applied glitter film products, which are perfect if you like to add a bit of bling to your applique, patchworking or quilting projects.
In addition to creating their own designs, the company has just commissioned Kathleen Laurel-Sage to develop a glitter film design for Tudor Rose Patchwork. Kathleen is a popular machine embroider who will be familiar to those of you who’ve attended previous Makit fairs.
At this year’s Make & Take from Tudor Rose Patchwork, you can pick one of four ‘Mug Rug’ (coffee coaster) designs for just £3.50 – Easter Basket, Christmas Candle, Sunflower or House – and learn how to cut glitter film from a template and apply it to fabric.
A member of the Tudor Rose team will be on hand to guide you through using glitter film. Each kit contains everything you need to finish your coaster at home.
