About Us

River Place Quilt & Sew originally started out as a consignment shop in 2006. Operating under the name of River Place Mercantile, one small corner of the shop was dedicated to approximately 100 bolts of fabric and a handful of notions and patterns, as well as a small assortment of Mettler thread.

The Mercantile eventually expanded its products and services to include the sales of Janome sewing machines, necessitating the need for a larger store location. River Place discontinued the consignment items and changed the business name to River Place Quilt & Sew to reflect its new focus on sewing machines, fabrics, patterns, notions, and sewing classes. Today, the shop resides at 2000 River Road (in East China Township), where Owner Margaret Hall is happy to pay rent to her husband...who became her landlord after purchasing, remodeling and leasing their building!

We're an authorized dealer for Janome and Anita Goodesign products. We also carry embroidery supplies, sewing essentials, and a wide variety of fabric collections from today’s most popular manufacturers, including Maywood Studios, Moda, Benartex, Red Rooster, Northcott, and Quilting Treasures, to name just a few.

River Place Quilt & Sew offers a wide range of classes and clubs in a casual, no-pressure environment where stitchers of all skill levels can enjoy the support and friendship of fellow sewing enthusiasts. Whether you prefer hand stitching, creating quilts, or making clothing, we have the products and services to inspire your creativity and help you succeed at sewing!
