If you like sewing and art, look no further you just have to call in here. We stayed for an hour but still didn't have time to look at everything. The quilting craftsmanship is impressive, the books are inspiring and the exhibition was just fascinating....More

Twelve rooms of wonderful patchwork and quilting fabric. Fabric split into categories, i.e. Xmas fabric room, batik fabric room etc. Impossible not to buy something. Will definately visit again.

This is the best quilting shop I have ever been to. Unfortunately I went to to Lampeter to only visit The Welsh Quilt Centre and had no spare money at the time of my visit. Next time though....
