Welcome to The Quilt Asylum
January 1, 2017
Happy New Year! If you are not on our e-mail newsletter list, you may not have heard the news.... I will be taking The Quilt Asylum in a new direction in 2017! I am semi-retiring and we will be closing our storefront. A *new* version of TQA will be launching online in April. The liquidation sale starts NOW online. You can click HERE to read our newsletter with all the details. The store will open to the public on Saturday, January 7th.
I opened The Quilt Asylum with a vision of having the "Cheers" of quilt shops. We want to get to know you, assist you with your quilting and sewing projects, and provide a community where you can just come, hang out, and sniff some lint! The word “asylum” can have two different meanings: a) a place for crazy people or b) a place of refuge or sanctuary. As a long-time quilter, I certainly can appreciate both definitions! We hope that you, too, can see that we are eager to represent both definitions to our friends and customers. We do our best to bring you the most up-to-date fabrics, books, notions, Blocks of the Month, quilt kits, and sewing and quilting classes. We hope to inspire your creativity through numerous samples located throughout our store.
We were honored to have been selected as a Top Ten Quilt Shop by American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine in the Spring of 2006. We were doubly-pleased when our original design quilt featuring Kaffe Fassett fabrics called “Nuts and Bolts” was featured on the cover of the magazine!
We are conveniently located on Highway US 75 in McKinney, Texas. McKinney is a charming suburb just north of Dallas with a revitalized downtown square, yet all the modern conveniences of urban life.
