QUILT SHOP CO-OP now has a

Recently acquired: Some 40 bolts of quilting fabrics.        Discount priced at only $6.50 a yard. 

The variety is sure to appeal to the bargain hunter in all. Stop in and see what's on the shelf. More to be added soon!  


We have that, too!

Just what IS homespun fabric? Homespun fabrics that you buy today are made to mimic the fabric that women made by their own weaving and dyeing process centuries ago. They are traditionally plaids, stripes, or ikats. Because they're yarn-dyed, they have rich color on both sides of the fabric, and the looser weave gives it a homemade look.

A recent Facebook viewer at Quilt Shop Co-op's page asked: "Do you have to be a member to shop?

Answer:  No, you do NOT need to be a member to shop. EVERYONE is welcome to shop at Quilt Shop Co-op! Most of the time members and non-members may buy the same products at the same prices. 

Sometimes membership pays off, however, as it did this past month, when members were entitled to take a 30% discount on one shopping trip. (Today is the final day to use that discount, members!) 

So, if you haven't done so, please think about joining the
