Airports are crowded, driving is tiresome, and fabric stashes take up too many suitcases (think of the baggage fees alone!). Have you considered taking a stay-cation? Be near the sewing machine, enjoy the AC, and stop by Quilty Pleasures for a class or two. Want to work on something specific? Not only do we have sessions for learning new skills, but you can also book our classroom to work on your own projects (sans interruptions from the kids). Summertime and sewing go hand in hand, especially at QP!

Pile of Quilts
Nothing can prepare you for the devastating loss wildfires cause, and Enterprise, NWT has endured a cruel summer that has destroyed 90% of their community. For many returning home after evacuation, there isn't a home to go back to. Watergirl Quilt Co. in Prescott is calling on local quilters to do what they do best: provide comfort when it's most needed. A quilt may not replace a home or the contents within it but it's a hug that can be carried and a reminder that someone is thinking of you.

Quilty Pleasures will be hosting a free sew day on Sunday, October 15th to create quilt-as-you-go quilts using a pattern provided graciously by Susan Madu of Modern Blended Quilts (which will be free to all registrants). Kits are available for purchase and pattern requirements will be emailed prior to the event in case you'd like to use fabrics from your stash. As an additional thank you participants will receive 10% off any regular-priced fabric or notions purchases made during the day.

Space is limited so register by calling 613-834-3044 or emailing us at

Thank you to Watergirl Quilt Co. for organizing this initiative, and see you October 15th!

Patchwork Duffle
You may have noticed this awesome duffle bag while browsing online recently, and there's a reason it's so popular! The Patchwork Duffle Bag has two pockets and finishes at a generous 12" x 20.5".

Choose between a solid exterior fabric or scrap it up and personalize it with some patchwork piecing.

You'll be amazed at how much you can carry in this bag, and how chic you'll look carrying it!

Many quilters are also knitters, and if you aren't, you probably know someone who is and who could use a Knit, Purl, and Roll holder.

Long, double-point, and circular needles of all sizes can be safely stored in a compact format, along with accessories such as stitch markers and darning needles. Anne will also give you suggestions for customizing your project (making it the perfect gift for all the knitters in your life)!

Master Your Stripology Rulers

Are you intimidated by Stripology rulers? Would you like to be able to complete repetitive cuts quickly and accurately? The Master Your Stripology Rulers class will teach you how cut strips, squares, and rectangles as well as triangles and diamonds in 1/4" increments using the various Stripology rulers. You will also learn how to make common units such as HSTs, QSTs and Flying Geese. The focus will be on how to use Stripology rulers with any project to help make cutting more accurate (and quicker!). While there won't be any sewing done in the class, feel free to bring along any patterns you may want to "Stripologize" as well as your own rulers, or try out the different sizes of Stripology rulers.

Founded by Vanessa Genier, an Indigenous mother from Missianabie First Nation in Ontario, Quilts For Survivors believes that a quilt is love sewn together to bring people together. The organization started with a group on Facebook asking other quilters to join in making quilt blocks to honour residential school survivors. We wish to honour the lives of the children who are just now finding their way home as Turtle Island releases the children back to their Nations across this land.

Quilt blocks should be 16.5" square and made of 100% cotton quilting fabric.
The only restrictions are we ask that you avoid any travel related or school related fabric. We also ask that you avoid religious fabric. A bit of orange in the block is a bonus!

If you prefer to donate a top, it should be 48" x 64" or lap size. Completed quilts can be any size.

Blocks and tops can be left at Quilty Pleasures for donation.

Thank you!


Star Cruisers Cropped
22 Quilters entered the challenge to complete 3 UFOs that had been taking up SPACE in their sewing rooms! (View all the entries here!) 

We are pleased to announce the winner of this beautiful bundle of
                               $250 worth of quilty goodies
                     (including fabric, nifty notions, and threads)
                                 Congratulations to Sylvia F!

Thank you to everybody who participated in the challenge; the Finished and Bound Institute is pleased to report that nearly 40 quilts were completed as part of the challenge and UFO spottings have decreased since July. Although that isn’t to say that new UFOs aren’t already on their way to a sewing room near you...

Come use our space and our tools (and escape your family, renovations or anything else you'd like to leave at home). Come alone or bring a friend. This is a great opportunity to sew-cialize with friends, both new and old! You can reserve a four-hour time slot for $15. A staff person will be assigned to help you, if needed, but there will not be a specific lesson or class being taught. You must bring your own machine (as always, we can help you carry it in), your project supplies and rotary cutters.

As an added bonus, any regularly-priced shopping you do the same day will be discounted by 10%. Please call the store to register or ask any questions you may have. 613-834-3044

There are several dates scheduled so check out our classes page for a complete list. Don't see a day that works for you? Let us know and we'll keep you in mind when we add to the schedule!

A QP gift card works on our online shop as well as in the store! So take a look in your wallet and junk drawer. A GOOD look.

If you find a Quilty Pleasures gift card, bring it in or call us with the number. If it has a balance on it, you can spend it like cash on whatever we sell, wherever we sell it. Fabric, notions, tune-ups ... . It's literally found money!

Those cards aren't doing any good sitting at home, so redeem them now and buy some fun!


Implementing an on-line shopping platform has necessitated a number of changes around here. One of the biggest is our new POS system, which won't affect you too much in your day-to-day shopping with us, but it does change how our loyalty programme works.

In a nutshell, the new system gives you a $10 coupon good for 90 days for every $250 you spend in the store*. Still pretty rewarding!

*Rewards are earned on regular-priced items only. Does not include classes or sewing machines.

This is a unique programme and we're excited to be a part of it, so please give it a go. It's always disappointing for us when a customer requests a fabric we don't have, but this gives you another way to buy exactly what you want.

It's easy, it's fun, and it's fabric. All good!

We know that price is a big factor when shopping for quilting supplies, and it's easy to assume that big box or chain stores will always offer a better price than an independent quilt shop.

However, we recently have had several customers tell us of specific instances where our prices were equal to or better than our competitors', even after their 50% discount was applied. We appreciate knowing that people are paying attention and realizing that our prices are competitive, even though we're a small, local business.

To our watchdog customers: Thanks very much for doing the math!

We continue to collect cuddle quilts for the Montfort. 

If you've never made one before, a word of explanation: These are small baby quilts that are placed in the neonatal incubators and bassinets, so the size is restricted to between 22" x 22" and 24" x 24". Their small size also makes them perfect for testing block patterns, busting your stash, and practicing free-motion quilting.

Keeping in mind the intended recipients are newborns, please aim for cute and cheerful, using only 100% cotton or flannel in the top and backing, and 100% cotton thread for the construction and quilting. Cuddle quilts are typically sent home with the babies who use them, so there is a constant demand for them.

Thanks very much. Your donations will be gratefully appreciated!

We can special-order products for you!

It happens all the time: You're reading someone's blog and they recommend a pattern, book, notion, or other item that you'd really like to have. Only trouble is, either they don't sell it or you don't want to order it from them because of the exchange rate, shipping costs, Customs issues, whatever.

Let us deal with it! We can usually order these products from our suppliers, and all of the hassles are taken care of. No fuss, no muss, and your order comes right to the store and into your hands.
