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, 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!

2015 Row By Row Experience

BOLT has joined in the Row by Row Experience this summer! All 50 states and several more Canadian provinces are planning fun for travelers throughout the summer. Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from any anywhere!

This year Row By Row adventure runs June 21 - Sept. 8, 2015. For more information go to

A brief history…

Row by Row Experience began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. In 2012 the event grew to include 62 participating shops. Pennsylvania came on board in 2013 for a total of 138 shops throughout the two states. In 2014 over 1250 quilt shops participated in 34 states and Ontario.
