About The Quilt House
Take a moment to learn a little about us, our history, and why we have such a passion for quilting.
The Quilt House was established in 1999 and is located in Gardnerville, Nevada – 12 miles south of Carson City at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range – just east of Lake Tahoe in the beautiful Carson Valley.
The Quilt House has been in the “Park Place” center since March of 2003. We are right next to Lampe Park, on the corner of Waterloo Lane and Highway 395. There is ample parking and easy access. We are within walking distance of the park with a great view of the Sierras – who could ask for more!
The Quilt House currently has over 6,000 square feet of shopping fun providing plenty of room for retail displays and sharing our many Bernina products – even space for our “Antiques and Stuff”. The Quilt House’s 18-foot ceilings allow for a very open and welcoming atmosphere and provide a great area to display quilts. With over 3,500 bolts of quality cotton fabric, many unique kits, notions, books, gifts and accessories – and with our Bernina line of sewing machines, Koala sewing cabinets and Heavenly Sewing Chairs – we continue to provide the quilter with a complete line of quality quilting and sewing products.
The Quilt House carries many great fabrics like Moda, Hoffman, and Henry Glass to name a few. We specialize in kits for projects of all sizes, and we’re constantly adding new lines of beautiful fabric to kit with that perfect pattern. Speaking of great patterns, The Quilt House is the home of “Bread and Butter Quilts.” Bread and Butter Quilts was started by Janet Pierce and Susan Van Alyne. Their great designs and clear instructions make their patterns very desirable for kits, classes or just doing on your own. B&B Patterns can be purchased through The Quilt House. Our Kits and B&B patterns have been featured in McCall’s, Fabric Trends and American Patchwork & Quilting Quilt Sampler magazines.
The Quilt House was honored to have been selected to be a featured shop in the Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine in September of 2004. We were further honored to be selected by Better Homes and Gardens to be featured in their premiere issue of Best of Quilt Sampler in March, 2007. We are very thankful to all of our dedicated staff (who are our backbone) and also to our customers, suppliers and friends who have supported us all these years and share in this honor and recognition.
It‘s always been our goal to have all our customers ”Experience the Fun with Us!”, so if you are a part of a large group ( Quilting Retreat, Quilt Guild, Bus tour etc.) and are on a “fabric hunt,” call us ahead of your visit so we can be ready to welcome you. We are open Monday-Saturday 10 am to 5 pm and closed on Sunday.
Please feel free to call our shop with any questions.
