Welcome to Heather Spence Designs!

Well...it's official. We've made it to sunny Brisbane, Australia all the way from Seattle, Washington (USA). We are in our own home and surrounded by the things we loved enough to ship overseas...except our puppies...which we re-homed only because it would've been too hard on them (btw...they are very happy where they are at).

In 2016 I signed a contract with a publisher for all of my current and upcoming patterns. In light of that we are going through each one and re-writing some of them. Others will not be offered again. Others will be expanded. And, of course, there will be new ones! All of them will be wonderful.

I am looking forward to this new chapter of my quilting life. With time to focus on what I really love and the creative juices that are starting to flow I think we're going to have a lot of fun to see where this quilting thing takes us next.

Please feel free to look around and ask questions.

When I started my business I thought long and hard about what I want to be about. And that's when I realized that I wanted my mission statement to be: To express love and comfort through quilting and to affect positive change in the world one person and community at a time.

What that will look like down under is up for grabs but I think it'll be good.

Thank you for stopping by!
