Midsomer Quilting, the fabulous quilting shop on the Medips in Somerset has recently moved to bigger and better accommodation. They are still based in Chilcompton but in a new location. Directions can be found here.
After much planning and organising the shop closed at 4pm on Monday the 25th of September with the aim of re-opening on Friday the 29th (no mean task knowing the equipment and stock involved). But, as always De, Birgetta & Chris did not want to disappoint potential customers by being closed so with the help of friends and loyal customers the epic task began.
Hundreds of bolts of fabrics were moved during Monday evening and shelving was removed from the old shop and reinstalled on the Tuesday in the new shop.
Chris, De, and Birgetta said they could not believe the kindness of everyone who offered help. I sometimes feel they have no idea of how much they have supported, guided and befriended so many of their customers. I would not be enjoying the success and down right fun of my new career had it not been for me meeting these three fabulous ex teachers. Many of us owe them a huge amount of gratitude and feel lucky to count them as great friends.
They would love to see you at their new shop and can now even boast indoor loos ( only people who have previously visited can understand what a treat that is, especially during a workshop when it’s cold and wet).
They will shortly be opening an online shop too. Check their website for details.
