Quilting Mayhem opened May 1, 2015, in a flurry of chaos after remodeling and then prepping fabric in less than thirty days. My twenty-year-old dream was coming true! Our focus was—and is—to be bright, fresh, and have a variety of fabrics to fit everyone’s tastes and needs.
Located in the charming historic town of Snohomish, Washington, our shop reflects the modernity of today’s quilting and sewing trends as well as the antique-shopping flavor of the area. Both tourists and locals visit Quilting Mayhem, where we offer more than 2,000 bolts of fabric, and notions, patterns, books, kits, and precuts.
We pride ourselves on introducing new quilting trends to our customers, and providing unique twists on traditional patterns, tools, and quilting methods. Our classroom is 700 square feet, which includes cutting and pressing stations. We also have a HQ Avanté longarm that customers can learn to use and then rent by the hour.
The shop’s quilting and sewing classes vary from a beginning level to more complicated, advanced concepts. Other classes teach bags, home décor, and crafts. Our wide variety of project styles—from traditional to modern—includes traditional piecing, modern improv, appliqué, foundation paper piecing, collage, hand work, English paper piecing, and sewing clothing. There are also many clubs and block-of-the-month programs. Our Wounded Soldier charity group meets monthly to make quilts for local veterans who serve in the military or law enforcement.
All of our employees teach classes, and outside teachers bring additional variety. We look to them for their knowledge and desire to teach what they know. By having a wide range of teachers, we are able to offer more than twenty-five different classes and clubs per month. Our six employees together have more than 100 years of quilting and sewing experience, which help us give the stellar customer service for which we are becoming known. A UFO (Unfinished Fabric Object) class meets twice a month for customers to get help finishing their projects, but of course we help customers every day with recommendations, advice, ideas, inspiration, and sometimes just good-hearted laughter. We have also taught social media classes to help customers learn how to be part of all the inspiration available on Facebook, Instagram, and Periscope.
Bringing quilters together is one of our goals, and to that end we have started a Snohomish Chapter of the national Modern Quilt Guild. We are thirty members strong and growing every month. We support our modern quilters by teaching them to branch out into new and different techniques. Events during the first year have included educational talks, fundraising through auctions and raffles, numerous children’s charity quilts, a retreat, block swaps, many new friendships, and plenty of “oohing and aahing” during show-and-tell time. At Quilting Mayhem, we challenge ourselves to work harder and better every day. We listen to our customers and encourage their input on what they would like to see and learn. A new project we have underway is to offer retreats for customers to make new friends and enjoy quilting together while learning new projects and techniques. We are also designing our own patterns that we’ll teach, and we’re creating our own online tutorials for customers to be able to refer to after taking a class.
We are thrilled to share our knowledge with our customers and to inspire them to create beautiful projects. Our goal is to give everyone who walks through our door the pride and satisfaction that comes from quilting. Nothing makes us happier than when a customer brings in a finished project that we have helped with, whether it’s picking out fabric, walking through a tricky step, or just the fact that she has finished something that’s been hanging around far too long.
Creativity and inspiration are our way of life and we live to share that with everyone.Vist Quilting Mayhem on Instagram, Facebook and Blog.
In Atlanta, all the roads that aren’t Peachtree lead to the bright, charming fabric haven that is Intown Quilters. Nestled in the neighborly suburb of Decatur, GA, IQ (as it’s called by those who love it) opened its doors in 2002 when owner Sarah Phillips grew frustrated with not being able to find the yellow fabric she wanted. Nearly 14 years later, Sarah has created a sewing- and quilting-enthusiasts’ paradise, filled with bright fabrics, eye-catching samples and a roster of classes suited for every skill level. And, of course, an array of yellow fabrics.
IQ remains the sole quilt shop inside the Perimeter (the interstate circling Atlanta), and its wares are just as vibrant and distinct as the city it calls home. “Bright,” “bold” and “fun” are the catchwords here! Modern designs from Cotton + Steel (featuring the work of locals Melody Miller and Sarah Watts), luscious solids, bold batiks, distinctive African prints and contemporary florals all tempt customers from the well-organized shelves around the shop. Mixed in with the thousands of bolts of quilting cotton are diverse substrates like double gauze, cotton/linen blends, jersey knits and chambrays that appeal to apparel sewers. The frequently updated samples – quilts, bags, clothing and more – give plenty of inspiration, as do the books and patterns from some of the hottest names in sewing and quilting.
A hearty list of classes help customers develop their skills (and a lifetime love of the hobby), from an introductory class for novices (Sewing Basics), first steps for quilting (Beginning Quilt Making), handwork (Hand Quilting, Hand Embroidery, English Paper Piecing), quilting (Machine Quilting, Free-Motion Quilting), techniques (Paper Piecing, Bindings, Sewing with Knits) and independent study (Sewing Studio, Quilting Studio). There are even summer camps for encouraging the next generation of sewists! Visiting teachers like Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, Jen Kingwell and Lizzy House demonstrate Sarah’s desire to make learning at IQ an unforgettable experience.
But it’s the commitment to providing quality customer service that really makes Intown Quilters a stand out. It’s not unusual to find a member of the IQ crew demonstrating how to miter the corners of a quilt binding or explaining why ballpoint needles are a must for sewing with knits. Whether customers are looking for help planning a quilt or just the right yellow fabric, they know the folks at IQ are there seven days a week to make it happen!Is Intown Quilters your local quilt shop?
