Welcome to Busy Bees Patchwork


Our shop is based at the National Trust property Tredegar House in Newport, South Wales, where we stock a range of products for all your patchwork, quilting and sewing needs. This year will be our 21st year of trading, if you have a story to tell us about your experience at Busy Bees we would love to hear it.

We love visitors and look forward to welcoming you - directions and opening hours. We have a customer gallery to display all the wonderful work of our very talented customers. Busy Bees have always prided themselves on being a "Hive of Inspiration" we care very much about our art and we love to see your finished project.


Our new workshop programme will be available on Saturday 13th July 2019 from 10am to 2pm.

Don't miss out on the chance to meet our tutors and to see what the beautiful pieces they have made and to book a workshop or two.
