July 2023 I Trip to UK

2023 SewEzi UK Trip

During the second week of our trip to catch-up with our European distributors, we spent a few fleeting days with Clare Greer in Northern Ireland. 


Clare’s business is Quilter’s Quest (https://quiltersquest.co.uk/), this is an online business that distributes SEWEZI products to Ireland and the UK. 

Clare’s mum Yvonne McKee is an award-winning quilter, and she gave me this beautiful quilt, called The Luck of the Irish. 


The Luck of the Irish

Clare attends various shows around the UK and Ireland. This weekend ( 22nd & 23rd July) you can see her at the Cowslip Workshops Summer Fair, Launceston, Cornwall.
At the end of our trip, we visited Cowslip Workshops ourselves and caught up with Jo Colwill. What an amazing creative space, I was inspired by the fabric, patterns, and workshop selection, and not least by Jo herself, with her passion for all things patchwork and craft. I also need to mention, the amazing food in her onsite cafe, with ingredients coming from her kitchen gardens. Definitely a destination for anyone who is visiting this part of the world.

Claire and her team will be showing our SEWEZI tables at:
