Shop Cast of Characters
The Cotton Patch is a family owned and operated, brick-and-mortar quilt shop located in Keizer, Oregon in the middle of the beautiful Willamette Valley. We carry a wide variety of high quality quilting fabrics in a well-rounded palette - from batiks to flannels to blenders to wide backs, we have something for every quilter! New pieces arrive weekly, so whether you're looking for traditional or contemporary, if you're a seasoned quilter or just starting out, we are here for you.
The store is bright with abundant natural light. That means that what you see is what you get; the colors aren't getting 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 available to help you with your quilting questions and quandaries, free of cost. Whether you need another set of eyes to help with making fabric choices, an impromptu lesson on a quilting technique you're unsure about, or just some quilt talk, we are happy to help!
We welcome individuals and small groups to use our classroom space to work on projects, free of charge. Our classroom features a sink area, an ironing area, a cutting table, two design walls, an in-room air conditioning, and for those rainy Oregon winters, a functional fireplace. If you or your small group would like to come in, please call ahead to ensure the classroom isn't in use by another group or for scheduled class time. If it's not taken, you're in and you'll be stitching away in no time!
Stop by and visit with us soon, we'd love to see you!
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.
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.”
