Welcome to Sew &Tell, the newest way for you to connect to all of us here at Quiltique. I am going to take this time to familiarize you with our brand however, I know we will be friends in no time! Quiltique is a family owned and operated sewing boutique located just outside of Las Vegas in Henderson, NV. We have a strong focus on quilting and machine embroidery, but we offer the tools you need for a bevy of sewing projects. One of the things we pride ourselves in is offering the best selection of fabrics, notions, and machines while balancing between modern and traditional.
We have a passion for color and are not afraid to play with it! One thing you will quickly notice when you enter our store is that our displays all tell stories. It makes it easy for you to find what you are attracted to and it offers inspiration for when you are unsure of what direction you wish to go in. Speaking of inspiration, it is very rare that you will find a pattern in our store that does not have a sample for you to see it finished, and often a kit to go with it! 90% of our kits consist of fabrics individually selected to showcase the pattern in a fun and unique way. One of the benefits of having samples made is that one of our sample makers has an opportunity to go through the whole pattern to insure you leave with everything you need and very little surprises when you get home.
I feel like fabric gets all of the praise, but let's be real: We need notions and tools that work to make these beauties. Not only do we carry brands that have been around for ever and have a great reputation, but we also search high and low for new products for you to play around with. We only keep ordering items that our customers love and our staff uses, so you can rest assured that everything from our flower head pins to our irons and rotary cutters have been tested and enjoyed.
Have you ever taken a class from us? If not you are really missing out! Our gorgeous classroom is equipped with spots for up to 22 students and we have amazing BERNINA B535's that you can rent. Our projects range from fundamentals to whole quilts, small projects like bags, select garments, machine embroidery, hand embroidery, and more. We regular offer block of the months and clubs for you to attend, as well as trunk shows and demos for you to view. Our teaching staff is both knowledgeable and passionate about sewing and they will make sure you leave feeling comfortable with new techniques, tips, and tricks to use behind your needle! You may have guessed we also host huge names in the industry such as Kaffe Fassett, Tula Pink, Marti Michell, Edyta Sitar, Judy Niemeyer, Camille Roskelley, Kaye England, Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister, Kathy Doughty, Sue Daley, and so many more! But we also love to have people who are fresh on the scene like Karlee Porter, Giucy Giuce, Abby Hicks of Tweetle Dee Design, Vanessa Goertzen, and Angela Walters. In other words, it doesn't matter what your sewing passion is or your experience level, we have a class for you!
As we have said, we have a promise of quality, so we should note that we are a BERNINA Excellence Dealer, and have had a relationship with them for almost as long as we have been open. We fully believe that these Swiss Made machines are the best ones to work with, plus they are seriously gorgeous, and you know how we feel about things that look nice! As much as we love BERNINA and hope to share that passion with you, we are happy to see any type of machine in our classroom that you are comfortable on and we even offer service on all brands of machines!
I feel like I should tell you that we love to party, I mean it is Vegas after all. And ok, 99% of our parties take place before the sun is fully set, and you don't always need to be put on a waitlist for them, but they are FUN! We could be having trunk shows, BERNINA events, storewide sales, raising money for charities, holiday happenings, Class Discount Day, etc. It doesn't really matter what we are celebrating, we are just happy to do it, especially when it includes snacks!
In all honesty, we are just a group of creatives who love to inspire and collaborate on projects. All of our staff is comfortable and encouraged with helping you make decisions on everything from fabric selection, batting options, best rulers, thread, and more. We always allow you to take the lead, and we love bouncing ideas off each other! We take your opinions very serisously: if you are interested in classes, products, or events please pass it on so we can see if that is something we can offer. If we haven't met in person, we hope we can at least connect at a distance. Of course we have social media that we engage on daily, but expect a weekly blog post on tutorials, store events, products we are obsessed with, interviews with people in the industry, and so much more. I promise to introduce you to the staff soon, but for now, I hope you have felt a little closer to our store!
Hugs & Stitches!
