Hello and welcome to my patchwork and quilting website.
I’m Annie. I am a graduate teacher with 38 years experience of teaching. In 2013 I retired from my day job as the Head teacher of a small village school. Now I have more time to devote to my interests and in particular the creative arts, especially textiles.
I am an avid sewer, patch-worker and quilter. I have an eclectic taste from traditional style to contemporary quilting using a variety of techniques. I am passionate about the creative arts and keen to share my experience.
In 2014 I launched into my business as a teacher of patchwork and quilting, longarm quilting and supplier of kit form projects.
I own a fully computerised professional Longarm Quilting System and can quilt using a range of bespoke digital designs in addition to my own free hand guided custom designs. I work from my dedicated, smoke and perfume free purpose built studio in the grounds of my home.
I have been very busy creating my curriculum teaching programme and will post projects on this website. Check out my blog for details of Patchwork and Teaching courses.
In addition I will have kits and projects for sale. There will be a mixture of projects to cater for all abilities from beginner to the more confident sewer.
I am also available to quilt groups for talks on my quilting journey and can offer whole day workshops. Please contact me via the website form or my phone contact: +447969649855 to discuss what I am able to offer and my pricing structure.
Please be aware that this website and Anne Garner have no connection to the Etsy store trading under the name Annie’s Patch…although she does have some lovely fabric! I do not have an Etsy store with the same name.
