The Shop

We are a family owned and operated brick-and-mortar quilt shop located in Keizer, Oregon.  We carry a wide variety of high quality quilting fabrics such that there’s something for every quilter.  We have yet to meet a fabric we don’t like!  New pieces arrive weekly and are posted to our Facebook page and in our weekly Newsletter.

The store is bright with abundant natural light that allows to fabrics’ true colors to shine through without being skewed by too much artificial light.  There are places to sit in comfortable chairs and talk, look at books, and even do your hand work.  We love to visit and especially so when you bring in your in-progress and finished quilts to share!  Our staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and always ready to help with quilting questions and quandaries.

The Cotton Patch is a one-stop shop for quilters, complete with our full line of fabric selection, notions, and classes. Now, partnering with Rich’s they continue offering 40+ years of sales, education, and repairs for the valley’s only true and oldest factory authorized dealer for Babylock, BERNINA, and Pfaff sewing machines.

Our Mission

Quilting is an art, and all quilters are artists.  Whether you choose to work in silks and velvets, or revel in the challenge of scrap quilts, fabric is your medium! The Cotton Patch is dedicated to fostering community and friendship among all quilters, and to the education of the next generation of aspiring quilters. We  strive to encourage new ideas and creativity in every quilter, and we are committed to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for all quilters to meet and perfect their art in their own way.

We believe in the immeasurable good that quilting can do for those in need.  We contribute to the Linus Project, Coffee Creek Quilters, the Wounded Warrior Project, Quilts of Valor, One Million Pillowcase Project, as well as several local quilting quilting groups that benefit foster children, autistic children, and chemotherapy patients.  We are a drop site for the Linus Project. Please give us a call if you have any quilts to leave for the Linus Project!

We believe in local business.  We want to keep the local quilting economy alive and well. If we don’t have what you need we will refer to you to another wonderful local business instead of an online vendor or big box store.  Without support for our brick-and-mortar businesses, they will go away.  

Learning

We work with teachers who have several years of quilting and sewing experience, all with different specialties and skill sets. We offer a range of classes that appeal to all skill levels of quilter, from those just starting out on their quilting journey, to seasoned professionals looking for a challenge. Be sure to check the class schedule posted on this site often (shown in the “Classes” tab), as well as what we are offering for “Block of the Month.”
