Quiltwork Patches was started in 1979 as a manufacturer of pre-cut quilt kits, which were sold primarily through mail-order. We soon added basic supplies and books, but continued as a mail-order business while our children were small. In 1980 we started vending at quilt shows in our area and in 1988, at the urging of our quilt show customers, opened a store in downtown Corvallis. It was small (650 square feet) but served us for 14 years as we became more adept at squeezing a large quantity of fabric into a small space. (The secret was to be very neat and organized!) In June of 2002 we moved our store one block away to a 2050 square foot store. Our inventory has grown to 4000 bolts, plus over 150 book titles and a large selection of quilting supplies, making us one of the largest quilt shops in the area.
Quiltwork Patches is an innovative shop serving quiltmakers locally and throughout the region. We offer an amazingly broad selection of fabric in many styles, all beautifully arranged in a light and airy store located in historic downtown Corvallis. In addition, we have a very large Sale section at all times. At Quiltwork Patches, there is something for everyone, with plenty of room and a friendly atmosphere welcoming quilters, from novice to professional.
Quiltwork Patches is fun to visit. The overall impression is of an abundance of color in a lovely, well-organized place. As you come in our store, you are treated right away to a display of quilts, encircling the store above cases of fabric. And once inside, you see four to six of the latest fabric collections displayed as cohesive groups.
Quiltwork Patches is truly an idea store. We feature a large number of quilt patterns (from full-sized to baby quilts). These are on display so customers can visualize how a particular fabric group will look in a finished quilt. Quiltwork Patches also features patterns for quilted clothing and gifts including vests, shirts, jackets and hats, bags, totes, pouches and purses, pot holders, place mats, aprons, sewing organizers and more. This makes it easy to use our models for developing your own ideas.
Our mission is to offer customers the best and most inspiring materials anywhere, to jog new ideas, and help quilting become a satisfying and creative aspect of thousands of people's lives. Women have a long tradition of support for each other around the quilt frame, and at Quiltwork Patches, we continue that tradition.
Quiltwork Patches is located in historic downtown Corvallis, where business is thriving. There are bakeries, restaurants, upscale clothiers and dress boutiques, a bead supply store and a cross-stitch shop, book stores and music stores, a paint-your-own pottery, a health food store, and a marvelous home furnishings store. Come to visit Quiltwork Patches and plan to spend the day in downtown Corvallis.
