Welcome to Alan Teather Quilting

Our Story

My name is Alan Teather and I have had a lifetime of experience.

I served in the military, became disabled, got married, had a family, and suffer badly from long-term mental illness. Reading this, you can understand if I say there have been a few ups and downs along the way.

My way of coping is meditation and being a passionate craft worker, which has helped me for many decades now. Also, I have long experience in photography and glasswork, candle making, sewing, crocheting, and especially traditional quilting. All to a high-quality standard. It’s the OCD in me!!

Learning to Quilt

In 2015 at the tender age of 54, I decided, on a whim, to return to education. I decided to study for a degree in Contemporary Textiles and Products.

Having been out of education for nearly 40 years, I had to do an Access to Higher Education first. After passing that course, I started my degree course in September 2016.

After 3, long, tumultuous, and exhausting years I gained a BA (Hons) degree in Contemporary Textilesand Products. This was at the Northern School of Art in Hartlepool.

Hobby to Business

As a result, quilting was especially hard to ignore when it came to setting up a business. I have been doing quilting for over 25 years, the longest time of any “hobby”. Therefore, it seemed only appropriate to take my love further, hence Alan Teather Quilting.

You can be assured of friendly, warm, and award-winning customer service at Alan Teather Quilting. If you are a beginner, a consummate professional, or a worldwide megastar then you are welcome.

So, there we are, a brief history of me and how Alan Teather Quilting began.
