We dedicate September to LUNGevity

On Friday, September 5th & Saturday, September 6 we will donate 10% of our sales to LUNGevity.  Come and shop for a cause!!

On Friday, September 12th & Saturday, September 13th we will be donating 10% of our sales to LUNGevity  AND Emma Rose will be having a bake sale and selling some little things she has made. (She wanted to make sure she had a way to raise money too.)

Every time you shop from now till the end of September, you will have the opportunity to 'round up' the total of your receipt to donate to LUNGevity.

All proceeds to benefit LUNGevity!!

We will be closed on Saturday, September 20.
Rachel, Kay and Emma Rose will walk in this year's Breathe Deep Baltimore LUNGevity walk in loving memory of our dear friend, Monica Pence Barlow. Monica lived fully and valiantly with lung cancer for 5 years. She passed away in February due to complications from non-small cell lung cancer.  Monica was a friend, a survivor, and an extraordinary ally in the movement to improve the survivorship of lung cancer.  We miss her terribly.  This year's Breathe Deep Baltimore LUNGevity walk is in special memory of Monica (who was also the public relations director for the Baltimore Orioles) and is being held at Camden Yards.

Lung cancer takes more lives annualy
than the next top four cancers combined
.


We invite you to learn more about Lung Cancer and LUNGevity. Lung cancer isn't a disease that just affects smokers. Monica was proof of that. And she was offended that anyone would think that anyone deserved cancer because of their life choices.  Help us make a difference in lung cancer research through LUNGevity.

If you don't or didn't smoke,
you are not imune to lung cancer.
About 55% of all new diagnoses are among people
who have never smoked or are former smokers.

Row by Row Experience winding down.
It has been an amazing summer with all the Row by Row participants collecting free patterns, buying kits, license plates, and having a great time traveling and discovering new shops. We have had a winner, but several of the VA shops still have their grand prize to give out.

Here is how the end of the Row by Row Experience will wind down.
1. September 2nd is the last day to pick up a free pattern or purchase a row kit.
2. You can still purchase license plates, if the shops have them but remember that at some point shops will run out and not purchase them again as Row by Row is coming to a close.
3. You have until October 31st to finish a quilt and try and win a prize. Remember that a finished quilt is 8 rows from the 2014 Row by Row Experience season, quilted and bound and labeled. You will need to sign a winners certificate listing the location of the rows in your quilt.
4. After October 31st shops can start selling their kits again and may at that time begin selling their patterns. You always work quilt shops into your summertime travel plans and now there is a shop hop that helps you commemorate your trip. Not going anywhere? Travel to your local favorites and collect rows patterns for your quilt.

Batting on the Roll!! We have Quilter's Dream Orient on the 93" roll and 61" bolt. We also have Quilter's Dream Cotton Select on the 93" roll and Quilter's Dream Blend on the 61" bolt. Quality Virginia produced batting for every need.

Classes - Check out our list of current classes. Call us to set up a time and day that suits your schedule.

Facebook - Make sure you follow us on Facebook! It is the best way to keep up with what is new and happening at the shop.


Sewing for a great cause. We continue to collect pillowcases for Hospice of the Shenandoah and Camp Dragonfly. Hospice uses the pillowcases we donate for birthday baskets for their patients. We look forward to your help in building their supply back up.

Fabric, Yarn, 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 and skeins of yarn 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.

Now also offering Noro Yarns and knitting notions.

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 have made up kits at the shop ($5) if you do not have appropriate fabrics in your stash. Kids from ages 6-18 attend the camp and the cabins all have bug themes. It can be bug fabric or any other youthful fabric you feel is appropriate.

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.
