It's almost here - yes the long-awaited new 'Rochester Riverside' multi-story car park is due to open this Friday, 29th April This will make car parking in Rochester so much easier. I know these past few months have been 'challenging' for parking; now there's an understatement! And we thank all of you, customers and workshop students alike, for your perseverance in getting to the shop.

Now unlike Henry Ford who was obviously not a quilter (as he only seemed to like one colour on his products), we enjoy the entire spectrum. In celebration of the lighter evenings we painted the haberdashery department a gorgeous sky blue last week and have hung loads of new colourful workshop quilts in-store. And finally to mark the new opening of the car park - race over to our events page for details of an opening discount - beep! beep!
