Merry Christmas!

The Quiltzette will be brief this week, but we didn't want to skip an issue and miss out on the chance to say Merry Christmas to everyone. We hope you enjoy a lovely day with family and friends, or however you choose to spend it. Warm wishes to you at this special time of year. 


Holiday Hours

We will be OPEN this week Tuesday-Friday. We will be closed on the following days:

Yarn Department Update

We have some potentially good news this week related to the yarn department. There are a few fiber lovers talking about trying to keep the shop in town and running it as a co-op. If you are interested in investing in keeping yarn local and have some fun at the same time, email Anne Worthington soon.
