Hello everyone,
It has been a little over a month since we have had to close the shop, but to be honest it feels like months. We miss you; we miss our classes and all the events! And we are sure you miss us as well. Hopefully our YouTube videos will help when you are missing us. A new video has been uploaded, a review of all of our kits. If you need a new project take a look. Remember, kits are 10% off.

A few weeks ago we are shared the Village pattern for you to use compliments of Moda Fabrics, United Notions and Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Has anyone had time to make a house block?

Village Houses

We would love all of you to make a house block, sign it and bring it in when we re-open. Or, drop off at the shop when we are there working on masks. When you complete your house block be sure to take a picture and post on-line or email to us via our contacts page for us to post. Be sure to hashtag #thevillagequiltshoppe and #modavillage.

The number of masks and donations we have received is inspiring. Thank you to everyone who has been making masks and giving donations. Between The Village Quilt Shoppe and Sew Creative over 8000 masks have been collected and donated. That is so awesome!!!!!! With the new mandate that everyone needs to have a mask we are getting more and more request. So please keep the mask coming.

Hopefully you are also taking some time to work on other projects. We have added a new gallery section we are calling COVID projects. Send us pictures of your creations, we would love to add them to our COVID gallery.

Thank you to those that have made purchases. Every little bit helps us stay afloat! If there is anything you need please let us know. And remember, our YouTube channel has videos of our fabric, patterns, notions and kits. Take a peakšŸ˜‰

It takes a village to keep a quilt shop in business! Stay safe & heathy!

We are so proud of The Village Quilt Shoppe and look forward to sharing the dream with you.

Tip of the month

Chain Piecing
This is one of the quickest ways to get a bunch of blocks or parts of blocks done all at once. There is no snipping in between stitching. Ā No raising of the needleā€¦getting the next set of fabric pieces stuck in the feed dogsā€¦none of that!

You simply feed piece after piece without cutting them apart.Ā  Then you cut them apart and iron and your ready for the next step of your pattern. This makes those patterns that call for 170 quilt blocks manageable.

Have a tip to share, send it to us, if we publish we will give you a store gift certificate.
