Trading in Patchwork Commodities and inspiration.


Unique, original designs – retail and wholesale.


Hat Creek Quilts will be closed from Thursday the 13th of April until Monday the first of May as I am travelling to France to attend Pour l'Amour dul Fil where my very own book will be launched by Quiltmania the publisher.

Hi there, my name is Deirdre Bond Abel and I would like to introduce to you my business Hat Creek Quilts.

This is the realisation of a dream that I had over twenty years ago when my family moved to our little farm in the beautiful Coal River valley near Hobart, Tasmania. My dream was to provide patchwork commodities and classes and share my gorgeous surroundings and many years of quilting knowledge with local and interstate quilters.

Twenty years ago the internet was just getting started so that was not part of the plan but it certainly is now. So for those of you who can’t come to Hat Creek Quilts in person I hope you enjoy looking at my beautiful website and hopefully find something that you like.  Postage is free for any sales over $100 within Australia.

My passions are traditional quilts, reproduction cotton prints from the 19th and early 20th Centuries and washed woven wool. You will see these passions reflected in the goods that we have to offer.
