Hello Quilting Friends!


Its been SO refreshing to have you all back in the store. We finally feel a sense of normal again! The Pedestrian mall has brought in many new faces, and we are excited to welcome you to our community of long term customers. We have been very working hard at the shop: receiving new and exciting fabrics, preparing for the return of our beloved classes in the Fall, and working on some top-secret projects.... oooooh how exciting!

Hours of Operation:
Monday to Thursday: 10 am to 8 pm
Friday to Sunday: 10 am to 6 pm


For the continued safety of our customers and staff,
masks are now required to be worn inside the shop. If you do not have one, we have disposable masks available at the front cash. If you are unable to comfortably wear a mask, please note that we offer curbside pickup daily. 

Free home delivery is available on purchases over $40 to the Metro area (St. John's, Torbay, Portugal Cove-St. Phillips, Paradise, and Mount Pearl) Deliveries will be twice a week on Monday and Thursday after 4:30 pm. We offer FREE shipping on order over $100 for the rest of the province & Canada

Looking for a sit down partner... 

Hello, George here. I am a quiet, simple soul looking for a cozy place to settle down. I like to be stationary, and am most comfortable having my own space to work in long term. 
I'm low maintenance, still in my prime at 3 years of age, and I don't take up much room - I can even collapse when you need some space for yourself.
My main interest is in freehand doodling. I hope to meet someone who loves to create, so we can collaborate and make beautiful pieces together.
I come from a background of good genes. With minimal care and service, I'm guaranteed to hold my strength and agility for years to come.

If interested (which I hope you are) please call 237-3655. I'd love to take you on a stationary date.

...Wild lady looking to settle down

I may have been outgoing and social in my past, but at this point in my life I am looking to settle down in a more serious, long term environment. I want familiar hands to hold me everyday.
I am in excellent condition, just 3 years old, and hold my figure well for having a 26" throat. I am flexible and easy to work with. Able to dance and maneuver smoothly with my partner. I can take the lead and show you with laser-pin-point precision exactly how we can move together. Open to freestyle as well!
I may take up a space in your home with my 10ft table and various accessories , but I will also take up space in your heart. If interested, come by and see me sometime at the store.

Love, Lucey.

While George and Lucey cohabitated for a couple of years they have decided to go their separate ways. It is a very amicable split and they wish only the best for each other! 

ECQco won the custody battle and is keeping George's and Lucey's offspring!
Look at how adorable she is:

#HomeMadeChallenge



Running until August 31st
*(one month left!)*

Alright, folks! This is the LAST MONTH to get those quilts made and submitted to our store for the Tula Pink HomeMade challenge! We are eager to see your submissions so come on and get them in!

To celebrate the HomeMade collection, Tula Pink, Free Spirit, AND Aurifil are sponsoring the HomeMade Challenge. This is a juried and judged quilt competition, and we’re proud to be one of the participating quilt shops!! This challenge encourages quilters to pay tribute to what drives the quilter, sewist, and maker to create with their hands through the creation of a 60" x 60" quilt featuring at least 80% of the NEW Tula Pink HomeMade fabrics and using Aurifil threads. The Jury, including Tula Pink herself, will select quilts that speak to the glory, attitude, and beauty that comes from the privilege of saying "HEY! I made that!".



How it Works!

Quilters can submit up to two pieces to ECQco. We will then select one entrant/quilter to submit to the Jury. The 12 selected quilts will have the chance to be part of the HomeMade Challenge Virtual Exhibit and the opportunity to win over $10,000 in prizes!! Wowza! 

All of the competition details and rules can be found on our website HERE. Please read them thoroughly before you start stitching!
