Shop owner, Patty Rowley, is so happy to offer a place for quilters and sewers to purchase what they need as well as gather together to learn.

BOLT offers high quality fabric from collections by Kaffe Fassett, Free Spirit Designers, Benartex, Maywood, Timeless Treasures as well as Island Batiks and more. Art Gallery Fabrics are new to Bolt. You can “feel the difference”. Bolt has a colorful variety of 100% cotton fabric, patterns, kits, books, notions and quilting tools for the avid quilter as well as for the beginner. BOLT has become known for purse, bag and wallet patterns and accessories and now carries some clothing patterns.

BOLT offers classes for beginning sewing and quilting as well as workshops for making specific projects such as wallets, table runners, bags, and more. We are developing classes for the needs and desires of our customers!

Some quilters are looking for traditional patterns and supplies and others are interested in creating more innovative projects. BOLT is a resource not only for supplies but for inspiration as well!

Need some color and inspiration? New fabrics & supplies arrive every week. Come spend some time in this lovely little shop!
