About Us

The Sewing Bee Café started business in 2014 as a small patchwork shop located in Baxter, Victoria and is owned and operated by Debbie.

The shop has now grown into the quilt shop it is today.  I have hundreds of fabrics to choose from with samples all over the store.  I also offer a huge range of accessories and products needed for the quilter.  The Sewing Bee Café also caters for those who would like to learn to sew – in fact novices are our specialty. We sell beautiful fresh modern fabrics of a high quality which we are sure you will love. Where possible we support Australian designers with both fabric and patterns.

The difference between us and other fabric stores is that we promote social sewing. From the minute you walk in the door you will feel welcomed and at home. We won’t engage in a strong sales pitch but we will offer you a cuppa if you wish to sit and browse through our patterns for a while. We understand that not everyone has their own machine and/or overlocker at home so we provide onsite hire for a small hourly fee. We won’t hover over you while you sew but we will be there to help if you need a hand. We will also have designated times when you can come and sit and stitch and enjoy a coffee while chatting to other creative souls.

The Sewing Bee Cafe is a Quiltworx Certified shop and Debbie attends regular training to learn all the latest technique of Foundation Paper Piecing.

The shop nis also a Janome accredited dealer, selling all machines and overlockers.  I give you endless support if you purchase a Janome through my store.

I have also recently become a Bernina Australia dealer.  Once again when you purchase through the store you recieve endless support.
