Celebrating our 40th Anniversary

2018 represents our 40th year in business and in our industry that is quite an accomplishment!
Achieving this milestone has only been possible because of you!!
We feel very fortunate to have so many quilting and knitting friends.
Without your support, specialty shops like ours could not exist.

Thank you for 40 wonderful years!!!

To see how Helen and Linda’s love of sewing sent them on a journey to open the Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center and to
create a “Quilter’s Dream”, please read “About Us”. Many quilt shops have been in business for 10, 20, 30 or more years,
but not many can say their shop still has the original owner and is in the same location ALL 40 years…BUT we can!!!

Join us at the Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center and help us Celebrate our 40th Anniversary ALL Year long!

For 7 days each month during 2018 we will feature a special offer

What’s NEW for 2018…

This beautiful block of the month, designed by Toni Steere and Jenny Foltz of Wing and a Prayer Design, features the 2018 Tranquility collection by Timeless Treasures. This collection consists of fifteen printed cotton fabrics with a palette ranges from aqua to deep sea blues, a foundation of sandy creams and beiges with a coral accent. The Tranquility quilt is made using traditional piecing. Toni and Jenny used the Creative Grids Ultimate Flying Geese Ruler and liked the no-slip feature it provides when squaring up geese.

The 2017 theme was “On the GO” and our row pattern was “Sew Flippin FUN!” – Everyone loves the beach and that is where we all GO for summer time FUN! Kick off your flip flops and stick your toes in the water. Walk barefoot in the sand. Pick up the shells and sea glass strewn along the beach. Our row has it all. The drunkards path block creates the meandering sand and water. The block can be pieced the tradition way or machine appliquéd the fusible way. An embellishing kit with little flowers for the flip flops, beads for sea glass and sea shell buttons are included to complete your row.

The pattern features the row, and two bonus projects:

  • Bonus project 1 – Add a license plate to a nine-patch drunkards path block unit to create a “Sew Flippin FUN” banner.

Technique Classes:

  • The Art of Sewing by Hand – Slow down, we move too fast! Take a break from sewing everything quickly by machine and create a beautiful work of art, all sewn by hand. Crazy Quilting, Hand-Appliqué, English Paper-Piecing, Sashiko, Redwork, etc are all works of art sewn by hand. This is an opportunity to get together with others who like to “slow down” and enjoy the process of sewing by hand! Class date is to be determined.
  • Psst…the teacher is not here! – When our classroom is not in use, it will be available for independent sewing. Come by yourself or get together with some of your friends and sew (quilt) in our classroom for a few hours or even for the entire day!  This is a great opportunity to work on your UFQs (Un Finished Quilts) or PhDs (Projects Half Done), start a new project, lay out a quilt or two, or just hang with the gang. Space is limited so registering is a must.
    • Fee – two options available
      • Open to all who register – fee is $10.00 per person
      • Rent the room for the day – fee is $80.00 (this would be your closed session)
      • Check the Red Barn Calendar for dates when the classroom is not in use. Then contact Linda (978-346-9292 or redbarn@redbarnonline.com) to schedule your time to use the classroom.

The time spent behind your sewing machine is some of the most treasured…

… so you deserve a machine that lets you get the most out of it. The Horizon Memory Craft 9400 was created with special, easy and time-saving features. Escape into a world of pure creativity with the Horizon Memory Craft 9400! Stop by to see it, touch it and stitch with it!
