Nikki Foley is a quilt judge, author, designer and creator. Owner of The Sewing Shed quilting shop on the rugged south west coast of Ireland, she has plenty of inspiration to create projects for her students and visitors. Nikki has been sewing, making quilts, creating textile art and writing books for the last twenty years, and began long arm quilting 10 years ago. Nikki has a love for Celtic design and Irish Mythology and is always using Celtic inspiration in her patterns, kits and projects.
The Sewing Shed was born from a simple idea, to create. Nikki accidentally started The Sewing Shed nearly 20 years ago after relocating to Co. Kerry in Ireland in 2003. She soon realised that there was a demand for Sewing, Patchwork and Quilting Services in the area and soon outgrew her classes in the local community centre. Nearly 20 years on, Nikki and the team at The Sewing Shed host many weekly classes in their new store in Boolteens Village, Castlemaine, Co. Kerry. Check our upcoming classes here now!
The Sewing Shed has been a life line for me. Nikki goes above and beyond to help you reach the end results of what you are trying to achieve. Her expertise in Sewing and Quilting and choosing fabrics in my opinion cannot be equaled. If you have an opportunity to visit The Sewing Shed you wont be disappointed. I would highly recommend this little Gem! - Joanne O'Carroll, December 2020
