The Patched Pumpkin is a treasure trove of gifts, kits, candles, books, patterns, buttons, fabrics, decorations and precious things that you will want to enjoy or share as gifts. For craft enthusiasts, this is paradise and for everyone else, a discovery of delights. We stock all you could need to create little masterpieces of quilting, embroidery and art as well as items that require nothing but a swathe of wrapping paper to be presented as beautiful gifts for every occasion. Ornaments, curiosities and decorations too. The Patched Pumpkin has gathered together a hodge podge of wonders in our charming shop here in Southport.
You will find us situated in the most beautiful part of this attractive, Victorian, seaside town that is famous for its wide streets, stunning architecture and wrought iron canopies. We are in a small parade of shops about half way between the natural wonders of the Botanic Gardens in Churchtown and the equally glorious Hesketh Park; about a mile from the town centre. You will always find our coffee pot brewing and the cookie jar full, so you can browse at your leisure and in comfort. We even have parking right on the doorstep.Barbara Bourgeau Richards memorable and creative cross stitch
