About us

Chris and Jann met through their mutual love of patchwork and quilting and decided to open a quilt shop on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.  Over 10 years the shop grew to be one of Sydney’s most successful.  They loved every minute of it and made many wonderful friends, however a slower pace of life beckoned and so the shop was sold and both moved out of Sydney, Chris to Tamborine Mountain in Queensland, since moving to Alstonvale in the Northern Rivers region of NSW and Jann to Central Tilba on the far south coast of NSW.

Not ready to retire completely and still great friends it was decided to do something a little different but still related to fabrics, threads, sewing and with a few extras thrown in for good measure.

Tamborine To Tilba is mainly an online store, but we also attend selected craft and quilt shows and offer workshops with some of Australia’s most respected and knowledgeable tutors.

The store stocks an eclectic mix of fabrics, quilt backs, books and patterns.   A  range of haberdashery is also available via phone or instagram.

The stock will be constantly changing with new and interesting things added so be sure to keep your eye on our instagram posts (@tamborinetotilba) for all the up to date information.
