About us

Carola’s Quilt Shop has moved!

Carola’s Quilt Shop is now a Quilting Studio & Retreat Centre. It is in the hills of Chilliwack, BC, a place called Ryder Lake. Open to the public seven days a week by appointment. Carola’s studio is fully stocked with Aurifil thread, sewing and quilting notions and many bolts of fabric and fat quarters

Carola’s Quilt Shop has Wheels

You will find Carola giving lectures, trunk shows, hands on classes at Quilt Guild shows, meetings and retreats and at sewing shows across B.C. and Alberta. Her Mobile Quilt Shop is packed and ready to roll at least 15 times a year! The calendar will be updated when Dr. Henry gives the go ahead for us to meet.

The family connection

Carola’s daughter Alaina was born into a Sewing and Quilting environment. As a crawler she was an A-1 pin picker upper. The “sewing machine bug” bit Alaina hard. Today she has a collection of Vintage Toy Sewing Machines and a Singer Featherweight Collection. We can’t say how many machines are in the collection, she wont divulge that number in her mother’s hearing. Contact Alaina if you have any questions about your sewing machine collectibles. She may be able to fill in a little history about your treasure.

Our gorgeous Five Packs of Fat Quarters

Carola says, “Alaina has been an asset when it comes to colour. She is responsible for all the beautiful colour coordinated fat quarter collections. I knew I could count on her after the first time, as a three year old, she organized my machine embroidery thread drawer. It looked like a rainbow!”
