Upcoming Events

Trenton's Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival

Saturday March 18, 2018 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM - Trenton, Florida



Trenton's first outdoor quilt festival in 2008 displayed several dozen quilts that were made by students at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe. Since that time, there have been six additional outdoor quilt festivals. 2018 will bring the ninth annual quilt festival on March 18, 2018, and will showcase over thirty quilt groups and demonstrations from throughout Florida. These quilt groups will be displaying hundreds of quilts both inside and outside of Trenton's historic buildings. The Quilt Festival will also include quilting and craft demonstrations, old time crafts, antique dealers, good food and music plus a display of antique cars and tractors.

The Suwannee Valley Shoppe Gardens

If you have not been to our shoppe lately, you have missed the lovely gardens which have been added recently between the Crystal Ice House and the Quilt Shoppe. Thanks to Paul, we now have a shady patio between these two buildings with a gorgous oak tree overhead. Tables have been added and Karen and Gary Alberts have provided landscaping which gives a wonderful ambience. As the autumn season approaches, we will be serving lunch outside under the oak tree in addition to the porch and inside café. Ragena is cooking up some new dishes and we look forward to seeing you.

Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe Classes 2016 517 North Main, Trenton, Florida (352)463-3842

New Classes Offered at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe!

Applique Cat Block

Sit & Sew – Come Sit and Sew the 4th Saturday of the month from 10:00 – 3:00 with Karen and Claire. Learn new techniques – need help starting a project or stuck in the middle or help with the binding – need help selecting fabric for your next project or just want to make new friends – or just want to sit and sew on your own project and socialize with other people who share your interests. Each month we will feature an applique’cat block that can be done by either of 3 methods – fusible machine applique’, needle turn or raw edge. If you are unfamiliar with any of these methods, we will gladly assist you. Karen Brake and Claire Batchelder will be offering the following classes: January 23rd – Celebrate Valentines Day with hearts and flowers and lace- and all things romantic. February 27th – we will feature paper piecing. If you have never tried it or thought it was too complicated, we will have simple patterns to get you hooked (I mean started). This is one of my favorite things to do. There will be no meeting in March as Trenton will be having their annual Quilt Festival. The projects we are considering for the remainder of the year are:
Quilt-as-you-go items
Scrap Quilts
Selvage items
Seminole piecing
Table Runners
Disappearing Nine-patch
Christmas in July
Join as we share our love of quilting. There is no charge and all skill levels are welcome. Claire.
