I opened Quilts & Treasures, Inc. on May 3, 2005. The store occupies a double store front in The Shaker Shops in East Longmeadow, Massachussetts, following a long tradition of quilt shops that have occupied the same location.
Known for our friendly service and fun events, Quilts & Treasures offers a wide variety of premium cotton fabrics, books, patterns, notions, threads, embroidery collections. Additionally, as an authorized Pfaff dealer, we offer sales and service of the brand's home sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, as well as Tutto luggage and Horn & Koala sewing machine furniture.
We provide fun, informative classes for quilters of all skill levels, helping them improve their skills and increase their creative options. We also offer a variety of clubs to engage the many styles and interests of our customers.
We are dedicated to community involvement, hosting such events as Quilt For A Cure Day to benefit breast cancer research, With Tea There Is Hope (a Head Trauma Awareness Event) to benefit Traumatic Brain Injury research, Quilts of Valor, ALS (quilts for the benefit of those suffering from Lou Gehrigs Disease) and food drives for Open Pantry / Rachel's Table.
Additional services include on-site service and repair of Pfaff sewing machine makes and models, vending or speaking at Guild meetings or your special events and hosting bus groups (please call ahead).
East Longmeadow is a picturesque community, rich in history and community spirit. The East Longmeadow rotary used to host a horse trough in the middle for horses traveling from the farms to Springfield - thus the seven roads that enter and exit the rotary! It is included in Ripley's Believe It or Not!! If you're in the area, we hope you'll pay us a visit! ~ Valerie
After 18 years, Valerie had decided to retire. The store is for sale. If no buyer, the doors will close on March 31, 2023. Thank you to everyone who has supported and befriended the store!
