About Jiddi's Patch Geelong
Jill Dunbar established Jiddi’s Patch in July 2010. Her aim? To make your time with us an experience you enjoy.
Jill worked in the health industry for 43 years before she opened Jiddi’s Patch. She discovered patchwork 10 years ago and became addicted but she realised there were limited quality quilting and sewing supplies for the discerning patchworker around Geelong and the Bellarine. Jill stocks the finest collection of quilting fabrics, supplies and accessories for all skill levels from beginners to the most experienced textile creator.
Jill didn’t want to just open a shop, she wanted to create a place to connect people with the same interest and Jiddi’s Patch has become a social hub for patchworkers. There are regular workshops and classes running on weekends and evenings and participants are encouraged to share their skills and creativity.
One of Jill’s biggest assets are her staff who are as passionate as her about beautiful fabrics, sewing and quilting, they happily spend time with each customer providing insight, advice and assistance with all needlecraft and fabric selections.
