Hello Everyone,

Happy Fabulous February!    What a wonderful January.  There were so many people who came to help us get the store ready to reopen and the Grand re-opening was amazing. We were awestruck at the number of you who came out that Saturday. Our hot chocolate bar was a such a success we are going to make it a yearly event!

Did you know we have open sews most Wednesdays and Fridays.  As long as we do not  have a class your welcome to come and sew.  And best of all its free!  So call your sewing buddies and come sit and sew with us!  Did you also know that if we have an evening or Sunday class on the calendar we are also open for business.

For the winter we are changing our hours a bit, instead of staying open to 8pm on Wednesdays we will be closing at 6pm.

There are some great classes in February, two bag classes, a paper piecing class and our learn to quilt series.  The beginning of March we have an Introduction to Modern Quilting. Sherri Lasky has been a quilter for 25 years and is the co-founder of the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild. She will introduce us to Modern Quilting.  Visit the calendar page or stop in for additional details.

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

Tip of the month

Use a walking foot for machine quilting

Different quilting techniques call for different sewing machine feet. You can use a quarter inch foot for sewing small seams and piecing together your quilt. However, using a walking foot for your binding and heavier quilting will better feed the fabric through the machine.

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



The Magnolia bag is a professional looking bag made with cork. If you haven't used cork before this is a great project to start with. The finished size of the bag is 9 1/2" wide, 12" high and 5 1/2" deep.
