We're more than a quilt shop!

We are a quilt shop, it’s right there in our name, but we are so much more than just a quilt shop when it comes to our classes.

Did you know that we offer classes in dyeing, painting, wet felting, garment sewing, decorative hand-sewing, and accessory construction?
We have broadened our horizons and community by offering creative classes that are appealing to quilters and makers of all kinds. When you visit our website click on the classes or calendar tabs and see all the fun and intriguing projects we have to offer such as paint pouring, felting a wool table mat or Christmas stocking, bag-making or sewing clothes for the littles in your life.

Venture outside the quilting box and keep your creative life interesting!
