New Fabric Store in Halifax

This is exciting, folks! 
I had the pleasure of visiting Patch Halifax on their opening day.  And guess who was the first customer to make a purchase?  Yes indeed!

Patch Halifax is owned by Chris Pasquet who believes everybody can learn how to sew and should have access to a sewing machine.  That is why her shop is equipped with several machines (Berninas - she has good taste) and a serger that people can rent by the hour.  She caters not only to quilters, but all sewists alike.  She has some books, notions and a nice variety of basic patterns for garment making.  Hmmm… I could be tempted…

As far as quilting fabric goes, the selection was quite modest on opening day, though more fabric is coming soon.   Right now, she has gorgeous solids from Westminster (to all the Kona lovers out there... take note: Westminster solids are niiiiice!), and beautiful collections with a modern vibe: Joel Dewberry, Charley Harper, some Essex Linens and... drum roll please... Liberty Stile.

I am told there is more fabrics on a truck just waiting to be delivered.  I may be making a special trip when Denyse Schmidt’s Hadley comes in!  Good thing it is on my way home from work... or is it?


  1. I stopped in yesterday as well. It is soo exciting! I love your fabric choices!

  2. Wasn't it fun to be there on Day 1? Really looking forward to having a new shop (and classes) to make use of.
    I did check out the solids... but don't think I'll be switching! I've got too much invested in my Kona stash! :)

  3. Glad you made it on the first day. I'll have to wait for Saturday.

  4. yay for being the very first sale!

  5. I was there just after you! and yes, I agree, the Westminster solids are very yummy...I bought some.

  6. I stopped in today-bought some chambray with anchors for a new fall scarf for me, and the Denise Schmidt was out too, so bought some of the coral in that line.
