Hours of OperationTues & Wed: 9 am to 5 pm
Welcome to The Barefoot Quilter, a family-owned and operated quilt shop located in Western New York, in the quaint little town of Rushford. Owner and master quilter Audrey Wolfer and her daughter Lacey, are excited and pleased to offer any advice or inspiration you may need for your current and future projects.
In our building, a refurbished old-time hardware store, we combine the charm of the old-fashioned general mercantile with high-quality designer fabrics of all types: florals, geometrics, assorted novelties, seasonal prints, children’s fabrics, batiks, and much more, from companies like Moda, Robert Kaufmann, Timeless Treasures, P&B, Blank Quilting, Andover, Windham, Red Rooster, and Hoffman. We are also proud to have pre-cuts like charm packs and jelly rolls available for purchase. Currently we house more than 475 bolts of fabric, but we are continually adding to our collection, so make sure to stop by often. There’s always something new to look at!
In addition to the fabric, we sell high-quality cotton thread like Superior Thread’s King Tut variegated thread and MasterPiece by Alex Anderson, along with Mettler silk finish and 1422 yard spools of Aurifil. We carry the Quilter’s Dream brand of batting (made in the USA), which includes Dream Cotton, Dream Poly, Dream Wool, Dream Green (made from recycled plastic bottles), and king-size Dream Blend, all sold by the yard, plus we sell some packaged batts in various sizes. We also have a large assortment of other notions to suit all your sewing or quilting needs.
Among our services, we are pleased to have quilting classes, complete with tips, tricks, and techniques for the beginner all the way up to the experienced quilter, taught mainly by our own proprietor, Audrey. For more detail, please consult our “News/Events” page to get a list of the currently offered classes, which will be updated every month.
We hope that you will be encouraged to come visit us, and become part of our quilting family. To help you stay in touch, we send out weekly newsletters to let you know of new fabrics, classes, and upcoming special events. If you are not yet on our mailing list, but would like to be, please submit your email address at the bottom of the page.
Here at TBQ, quilting isn’t just our passion- it’s our life! And there’s only one way to do it— Barefoot!
