2018 Sew-A-Long

It takes a spool of thread...
It's that time of year that we start promoting and you start hearing a lot about shopping small. There is all sorts of retail research that shows how your dollar spent locally does the most good in your community, towns, local charities at the same time, supporting your local businesses. 

Your local shopping investment really does matter to us.  You have heard us say there are no small purchases and we really mean it.  Think of it this way... if every person who received this email came in to the shop once a month and simply purchased a spool of thread, it would pay the rent for a month. Really! If every person added to that spool of thread a package of needles and a yard of fabric, it would pay salaries. Really!

That's what Small Business Saturday is all about. It's about reflecting on the businesses in your community that are meaningful to you, and about supporting small independent businesses so that they remain viable and vital. It's an easy thing to do year round. And it doesn't take much. Just a spool of thread...

We look forward to seeing you soon!!



Fabric, 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 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.

We also carry a wide variety of gift items including Swedish dishclothes and Greenwich Bay soaps and lotions.

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 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.
