Kimberbell designs. Every now and then the name Kimberbell pops up and I have a quick look and leave puzzled as I dont fully understand the site.

So is it possible to buy individual designs or is it just the full kit of fabric and a design(s)? I have tried searching out a few of the UK shops that supposedly stock the company but draw a total blank on each site when I add the name Kimberbell to the search. Thanks for reading and hopefully replying and educating me

Not real sure, but, I think Kimberbell only sells the quilting designs for the actual quilting. The CD's, pieces and parts can be purchased through participating quilt shops and on line through Etsy and E-bay. There are many options...…….I didn't realize when I got the Red, White and Bloom that it could be found as a whole kit. I wound up getting the book with CD, fabric bundle and embellishment kit from three different sites. The fabric bundle didn't have all the selections used in the quilt, so, I had to shop my own stash and in the end wish I had used what I had for all of it. The patterns/designs are very well thought out and done very well. I don't mean this in any way to bad mouth or discourage anyone from purchasing these products as they are very cute. And, I know sewing can be an expensive hobby...…….look at the dollars we pay for TL machines, but, almost $200 for a wall quilt that I will only display once a year and most likely never use the designs again is a little too much for me. But, that is just me and solely my opinion. I am not and would never try to hurt anyone's business. Just wished I had a little more info before jumping in head first.

Millie in Fl thanks for your reply. I find it interesting that the designs are on CD's as laptops no longer have a CD drive as a standard thing. Yes there are some beautiful designs but they are expensive. It is the valued opinions from others that I value here. I have found trying to get the info on them in the UK challenging to say the least. I will keep looking but dont think I will be buying

The designs are sold as a CD. They are quite expensive compared to a lot of other sites.

i am a little puzzled too. One category (Embroidery Designs) seem to be CD's. The descriptions are not very informative what one gets in the other categories. .
