You always work quilt shops into your summertime travel plans and now there is a shop hop that helps you commemorate your trip. Not going anywhere? Travel to your local favorites and collect rows patterns for your quilt.
Visit any participating quilt shop during the summer and ask for the pattern for a row in the Sew a Season quilt. Each shop is choosing a season to represent in their row and offering the pattern at no charge to customers who visit the store between July 1 - September 2, 2014.
There are no fees or passports.

Fabric, Yarn, Gifts and History
Rachel’s Quilt Patch is “at home” in the 1860 railroad freight station in the
historic Wharf District in downtown Staunton. In its heyday this place held boxes and boxes of railroad freight, moving it out and into warehouses across the street. In its new incarnation, quilters gather for classes and clubs, and yards of fabric and skeins of yarn are enthusiastically bought and sold. You are invited to come and share our place and our space, shop for all your quilting needs, ask for help, sit with Sweet Blue, our resident Siamese, and show us your latest projects—in process or finished.
We are experienced quilters dedicated to offering personal service. Located in Historic Downtown Staunton at the Train Station
(Read more about the Wharf District
on 'About Us' page)
Inside our Shop
Our shop features: 100% cotton fabric collections from top of the line designers and manufacturers, craft patterns, books, & notions selected for today's quilter and fabric crafter.
Now also offering Noro Yarns and knitting notions.
Pillowcases for Camp Dragonfly and Hospice
We continue to collect pillowcases all year in preparation for next year's camp, as well as for current and future hospice patients.
We have made
up kits at the shop ($5) if you do not have appropriate fabrics in your
stash. Kids from ages 6-18 attend the camp and the cabins all have bug
themes. It can be bug fabric or any other youthful fabric you feel is
We love the Rolled Pillowcase Technique, (we use 3/4yard for the body and 1/3yard for the cuff.) It's up to you how you would like to do them but we find this technique the easiest. Come into the shop for a demo if you would like. We ask that we have Camp Dragonfly pillowcases turned in by September 1st.
We will continue to collect pillowcases for Hospice throughout the year. Thank you for your help in making a difference in your community.
