This Saturday, January 25, is Local Quilt Shop Day. We would like to invite all our quilting friends to join us in celebrating this fun day!

We will also be giving a goody bag to the first 54 people who come into the store. In your goody bag you will find a thimble; if you are one of the lucky ones to receive a gold thimble (4 per store) you will win a fat quarter bundle. To sweeten these deals, and your experience on such an iconic day, we will be giving DOUBLE points with every purchase made. We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday, but for the best deals, make sure you arrive early!!!

(If you celebrated your birthday already in January, please come in for the same offer).

*Valid only during the week surrounding your birthday.



Every Tuesday is the meeting of the Farmington Sewcialites. What is a Sewcialite and how can you become one? I’m glad you asked. A Sewcialite is someone who loves to sew with a group of other sewists and quilters. To become a Sewcialite all you have to do is show up to Quilted Corners on any Tuesday with your sewing machine and a project to work on. This is a come and go setting, open from 9-5:30. You may bring your lunch or snacks (only drinks with lids, please), or you may patronize the many restaurants in the vicinity. Plan to sewcialize with your friends, make new friends, and complete numerous projects. If you need help or advice, you need only ask. If you need a project to work on or fabric or notions to finish a project, we will have those available. If you would like to use one of our classroom machines, just call ahead to reserve one, as we have a limited number of machines available for class use. We look forward to having you join Farmington’s newest, most exclusive sewcial club!
