Holiday & January News from Main Street Quilting Co.

Merry Christmas! We know it's been super cold outside, but we've got some hot stuff in the store worth donning the puffy coats for. Lots of new fabrics, new patterns, and a staff of lovely, smiling faces. 

Classes and Special Events

Advanced Beginner Class: Thursdays starting Feb. 9th, am/pm sessions

Hoffman recently released a kit in the Sew into It series, a queen sized batik faux paper-pieced quilt. We say faux paper-pieced as there is actually no paper! All the pieces are laser cut for you, and conveniently notched to make sewing easier. Main St. Quilting will offer a class on this gorgeous kit, so get yours today! Three colors available. Call to let us know which one you want.
