High Street Quilting is a patchwork and quilting shop situated on the high street in Birtley.  We are easily accessible by car, with ample free parking to the rear of the shop and there are  excellent bus links, as we are on the main A167 between Durham and Newcastle.

We stock a wide variety of fabrics as well as haberdashery, wadding, books and lots more! Our fabric suppliers include Lecien, Stof, Makower UK, Robert Kaufmann, Lewis and Irene. Threads stocked are from Gutermann and Aurifil. We have fabrics designed by Lynette Anderson, Carolyn Friedlander, Anni Downs and Tilda. Why not come and join one of our sewing groups?  We cater for all skill levels from absolute beginners to experienced quilters. Check our workshops page for details. Click on each class to see times and prices. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included!

 We are proud to announce that we now have LIBERTY fabric in stock


2018 Is set to be a Massive Year here at High Street Quilting.

Having recently purchased new premises we are hoping to have bigger and better shopping facilities where we can showcase more beautiful fabrics and threads as well as bigger and better workshop facilities to accommodate more exciting classes and workshops. Our very own sewing paradise.

But for those of you who love before and after photos – Here are the “before” photos I hope you have as much optimism and vision as me – you’ll need it !
