Looking for the perfect label for your handmade quilt? Katipatch is just for you! I needed specific advice about the label making service they provide, and a quick email started an awesome design process. Carol is fab! She will help your creativity go wild! She has a knack to make things more visually interesting and I was seriously blown away by Carol’s help and advice. The amazing service was better than I could have imagined, and I will definitely be ordering from Katipatch again!

I can highly recommend Katipatch quilting fabrics, they are superb quality and my orders arrive pretty much next day. What a wonderful store full of treasures and helpful Ladies. I will carry on buying fabric from them as long as I can. Keep up the fantastic work.

I started the course never having done a stitch of patchwork and 9 weeks later finished it with a gorgeous completed quilt top and the confidence and skill to independently sew intermediate level blocks. Carol’s classes were packed with information, inspiration, techniques and tips – she has a great teaching manner and every session was full of fun.

Just wanted to say, Carol how much I have valued and continue to value your guidance and help as I have learnt how to quilt. As a teacher in the patchwork sampler class I attended you provided me with easily understood instructions, and helpful guidance that encouraged and empowered me to make a fabulous quilt, which I am so proud of. It has encouraged me to go on to bigger and more creative quilts. I also appreciate that you willingly help me out whenever I call into the shop and need a bit of help on a tricky bit of quilting or with selecting fabrics. Your friendly, approachable manner, and sense of humour is much appreciated.

Carole / Katikati

Set in rural Katikati is this fantastic little shop for the discerning patchworker/quilter. Nowhere will you find a better source of beautiful fabrics, patterns and accessories than here – all at very reasonable prices. And if it’s help you require, whether with choosing colours, fabrics or even tuition, no-one could be more knowledgeable or patient than owner Carol Biesiek with her welcoming smile.

 

Heather Groves / Katikati

At a night school class some 30 years ago I started by hand a patch work quilt which I never finished.  I always said that when I retired I would finish the quilt.  On retiring to the BOP I looked for someone who might be able to help me with my unfinished project. I found Carol at Katipatch and she was only too willing to help and I finished my quilt using my sewing machine.

 I went on to do the beginners class, and consequently another quilt was made.  Carol has been my teacher and mentor the whole time and I can’t believe what I have been able to achieve.  I have also done Carol’s appliqué class and quilting class and I have learnt so much.  Carol is a patient, experienced teacher with a lovely workroom space.   She has a lovely shop, with a wide range of beautiful fabric and accessories. 

What I love about patchwork is that I have met some lovely ladies, and my projects are not only beautiful but are useful too.  What a lovely hobby/passion to have.
