Meet Your Host

Hi, I'm Alice

I’ve always loved playing with fabrics, finding particular joy in combining colours. Finding a snippet of Liberty amongst my grandmother’s quilting stash of worn-out dresses and vintage fabrics was always a highlight and, from there, my passion for Liberty fabrics grew.

One of the most rewarding aspects of running my business, Alice Caroline, is the opportunity to collaborate with incredible women. Interacting with our customers brings me immense joy and a personal highlight is dedicating time to crafting sewing patterns and kits. Many of our kits are stocked in the iconic Liberty of London store which is always so exciting when I visit. One of my favourite things is designing quilts – I simply adore getting lost in both design and Liberty fabric choosing. I’m super excited to be sharing a new quilt designed for the sew-Along Festival. I love how quilting brings us together, across ages and continents – I love sharing the quilty Liberty love worldwide.  Alice xoxo
