Your Neighborhood Quilt Shop.

create • sew • quilt

Shop owner, Patty Rowley, is so happy to offer a place for quilters and sewers to purchase what they need as well as gather together to learn.

Bolt offers high quality fabric from collections by MODA, Michael Miller, Kaffe Fassett, Northcott including flannels as well as Island Batiks and more. The number of bolts is ever increasing! Bolt has a nice variety of 100% cotton fabric, patterns, kits, books, notions and quilting tools for the avid quilter as well as for the beginner.

Bolt offers classes for beginning sewing and quilting as well as workshops for making specific projects such as table runners, bags, and pillows. We are developing classes for the needs and desires of our customers!

Some quilters are looking for traditional patterns and supplies and others are interested in creating more innovative projects. There is such a joy and satisfaction in creating with fabric. Bolt is a resource not only for supplies but for inspiration as well!

Bolt has some nice and useful gift items. Some are perfect for the quilter in your life and others are great for everyone.

Need some color and inspiration? New fabrics & supplies arrive every week. Come spend some time in this lovely little shop!
