Welcome to The Quilt Shop by Lois
Welcome back to the Quilt Shop by Lois. We have re-opened in line with the State’s COVID-19 guidelines.
Quilting is an intricate blend of precise manual skill and mental imaging. It is both art for its own sake and a practical expression of sewing skill that can produce a family heirloom beloved as a source of comfort and warmth on a cold winter’s night. The Quilt Shop by Lois supports quilting and quilters through a program of skills classes, quilting retreats, personal guidance and just plain old companionship. We sell high end fabrics, the necessary small tools, notions and Bernina sewing machines; all the components necessary for a successful and stress-free project.
Quilters are not just a “craft group.” We make up a community where each pone of us looks out for the other, especially now, when our country and the world are in the midst of a pandemic health crisis. In line with this philosophy, we have established strict parameters for the Shop’s re-opening; to create the healthiest environment we can for our customers.
We are open to the public. The Shop’s hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10:00 – 4:00 and Friday, Saturday 10:00 – 3:00. We will also continue curbside pick-up and shopping by appointment, if you prefer. If you do come into the store, there will be hand sanitizer available and all customers will be required to wear masks while in the shop. For those of you who just aren’t comfortable coming in to see us in person, we are working hard to set up and launch an on-line store that will let you shop through the internet. I will confess that our on-line store looks to be a bit rough to start, but it can only get better as we gain more experience with it, and I hope that you will bear with us as we move up the learning curve.
We are also starting in-person classes this fall and the schedule will be posted directly; so please check back. We will be sanitizing the classroom between classes and the sessions will be socially distanced.
The Quilt shop by Lois is entering its sixth year of doing business. Each of those years has been filled with challenge and a sense of adventure. Each year has brought us new friends. We hope that you will join us as we move forward.
