About Us

Our shop and studio workshop are very individual and stacked full of goodies!

The Place can be found in picturesque Dam Street in Lichfield and has been trading in Lichfield for nearly 20 years. Customers often comment that it is an Aladdin's Cave crammed full of goodies! It is the result of a personal dream of mine to work with and sell craft and fabric items, and hopefully inspire people to be creative.

The Place specialises in providing a huge range of fabrics from around the world and craft items, as well as bespoke advice for everyone interested in sewing, patchwork, crafting or mixed media.

We also offer workshops and classes at our Lime Place studio (see below) to encourage and promote people's confidence and enjoyment in making handmade items. We especially hold regular patchwork and quilting sessions for complete beginners to experienced quiters.


Lime Place studio was born because I wanted a home for our expanding range of workshops and classes.  Purpose-built and newly opened in 2013, the Lime Place studio is in an idyllic setting (look at our view below!) on a private estate on the outskirts of Barton-Under-Needwood, a short drive away from The Place.

Lime Place offers a huge range of craft workshops and classes with expert tutoring and can accommodate small or large groups at all times of the day, seven days a week. Feel assured you will receive the best help on your "sewing journey"!

One of our most popular classes is always the "Beginner's Patchwork & Quilting Course".

We also offer one-to-one tuition to help learn or improve specific skills, such as using a new sewing machine or quilting techniques.


Some examples of the our recent workshop projects can be found on our Inspiration/Gallery page.
