Blue Bar Quilts
Quilt Shop, Arts Center and Gallery
Blue Bar Quilts mission is to build a vibrant community for modern quilters and fiber artists in the greater Madison area to come together and learn and develop techniques, abilities, styles and interests. We partner with our customers to fulfill their needs while sustaining the business through mutual support.
Providing immediate access to materials and supplies that customers need enables them to keep their creative juices flowing and supports their growth and, in turn, that of the shop’s bottom line.
What you’ll see at Blue Bar Quilts
Our artist and maker galleries, classroom and dye studio foster and promote the work and continuing education of area fiber artists. We have strong connections to local groups and guilds including Madison Modern Quilt Guild, Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists (the former two hold their monthly meetings here) Mad City Quilt Guild and Memory Cloth Circle.
We display the original work of local quilters and other artists and craftspeople as well as that of our staff and customers. Many of the quilts, garments and projects on display at our shop are examples of contemporary designers in the modern quilt and independent design genre as interpreted by the maker.
We offer quality commercial 100% cotton quilting fabrics as well as an assortment of other substrates such as linen blends, jersey knits, rayon, hand dyed cottons using fiber reactive and indigo dyes. Our shop also carries threads, notions and patterns. Classes in quilting, garment and accessory sewing, dyeing, hand stitching and surface design for all ability levels are offered on a continuous basis.
