Website Updates coming soon!!

 Hello all -

Thanks for visiting Mad River Quilting.  September and October were very busy months, with Lisa away for several weekends at shows in both Vermont and New Hampshire.  In the midst of this hectic schedule, the computer at the shop decided it was going to retire.  Technology woes ensued.  After purchasing a new computer, the task of rescueing, retrieving, and rebuilding began.  At this point, most of the behind the scenes work has been accomplished.  The last big task is making sure the online store is brought up to date with new fabrics and quantities.  In addition, this website is being refreshed and updated and will be ready to launch by the end of the year.  Look for those changes soon!  Whew - I have learned more tech-y lingo in the last couple months than I thought possible.

Quilt Appraisal Evening

Professional Quilt Appraiser Carol Wheelock will be at Mad River Quilting on Main Street in Waitsfield on Wednesday July 10 from 4 – 6:30 PM.  

The quilt you have made, bought, or inherited may be worth more than you realize.  Insurance companies consider quilts to be blankets unless they are insured.  Appraisals are necessary to determine replacement value in case your quilt is lost, stolen, destroyed, or damaged.  This includes quilts you ship or mail.  Appraisals are also used to settle an estate, determine fair market value of a quilt to sell, or determine the value of a quilt to donate.

Call Carol at 496-2306 to schedule an appointment.  Each appraisal is approximately 30 minutes and costs $40.


A Mile of Smiles Pillowcase Party!

It takes 2,112 pillowcases to reach a whole mile. How close can we get? There are two ways to participate in our pillowcase challenge this month.  All pillowcases collected will be donated to ConKerr Cancer.

First - Make a standard pillowcase (happy, cheerful kid fabrics plese) and bring it to the shop by Sunday, April  28.  We'll be keeping count and calculating our mileage as we collect.  Every time you bring in 2 pillowcases, you can pick a Mad River poker chip for a discount on an item of your choice!
It's a win-win for ConKerr and you!
Second - Join our Pillowcase Party!                
Sunday, April 14

Stop by for a couple hours or stay for the day.  We'll be in production mode and anxious to see how many pillowcases we can create in a day.
