More Than A Quilt Shop.

Dear quilting and sewing friends,

BOLT Summer Photo

Big News! BOLT has moved to Bucksport, Maine! While I miss Cornish and my wonderful, loyal customers, I am closer to my kids and my grand baby and I look forward to a new chapter in our lives and in the life of Bolt Fabrics! I hope you will take a road trip to see me when Bolt re-opens (or I will understand if you wait until Spring).

The shop will be in storage until renovations are finished! Please revisit this site to see the progress on the building and the re-opening date!

You might be wondering...

2019 Hop Fabrics!

The 2019 Shop Hop fabric is "Wildflowers of Maine" by Robert Kaufman! This EXCLUSIVE line of fabric has been custom-designed for the Maine Shop Hop!

Each of the 10 prints in this line feature a Maine wildflower: trillium, Dutchmen's breeches, lady slippers, Solomon's Seal, lupine, pinecone and tassel, chickory, Jack in the Pulpit, sea lavender, and sea rose.

Only the 30 participating Hop shops will carry this fabric. You won't be able to find this line anywhere else, ever!


Bucksport Shop Renovations…

We made it through the holidays and into the New Year! Thank you to Brandon from BK Construction out of Orono for working through the snow and bitter cold and to my husband, Scott, for assisting him most days!

As you can see, it’s looks great and the work continues inside! While construction continues, I am ordering fabric, patterns and notions, making samples and planning for Maine Shop Hop in April! I continue to meet local quilters online and in person and I am so anxious to set up shop again!

If you are not on my email list, send me a note by clicking HERE on the right side of the page and I will add you to my list!

Keep checking in! It’s going to be wonderful!

Happy sewing!

(Weeks of December 14 through January 14)

Construction started 3 weeks ago and is moving along slowly as we deal with rain and cold and now snow coming.
