About us

This is the start of a new adventure for Joan and myself, an exciting new patchwork and quilting shop called Dotty Dolly. We are based in Wellington, Somerset, at 13 Fore Street (opposite the Nat West). You can contact us on 01823 660879.

We are easy to get to from junction 26 on the M5 - come and see us if you are passing by.

Superman actually visited the shop last week - wish I had my camera with me.  I was happily sitting working at the table and heard the door open  and saw a lovely young man standing  there in a proper superman suit saying that he had heard a scream and had come to help (notice he didn't say rescue me, he was probably looking at me thinking "I can't lift that").  It certainly cheered me up but of course he was selling raffle tickets and of course I bought one (good marketing) but have no idea what the charity was.

The only other men coming in the shop for the rest of the week were delivering fabric (including today) so struggling to find places to put it all. (samples below)

My husband came back from our friend Judith's house last night with a little model of our shop that she had made after coming in which was lovely.  I have put it in the window for a few days so if you are passing have a look, luckily she didn't attempt to make models of either Joan or myself.

  1. I should have had a proper look in the window. I noticed it on my way out as I got into the car but just thought it was a box of fabrics. What a clever friend you have. Why did Superman not come in to see me? Did you warn him off?
