Don't let the heat of the Summer slow your sewing down - it's nice and cool here at the shop! We are enjoying all of our summer customers who visit every year as well as our local customers too!

Thinking ahead to cooler weather - our Holiday fabrics are steadily arriving along with other wonderful lines of fabrics, books, patterns, and notions.

We have a QOV sew day scheduled for this coming Saturday (6/29/19), a free Sit and Sew in early July and many new and fun classes on the schedule throughout the summer and into the fall months. You will find details below and also on our website at www.serendipityquiltshop.com.

The shop will be closed during the upcoming Independence Day and Labor Day Holidays as noted below.

We wish you all a very happy and safe 4th of July! Enjoy the time with your friends and family!

Placemat Project
Studies have shown that persons receiving home bound meals (similar to Meals on Wheel) feel motivated to eat meals on a more regular basis if they have an attractive place setting.

CHEER  has been serving Sussex County since 1971 and provides over 230,000 meals annually to eligible home bound seniors in Sussex County. This vital service ensures that no senior in Sussex County goes hungry. 
As quilters, we can support the meal program and these seniors. Use up your scraps or other fabrics that you often wondered why you purchased and make placemats!  Perhaps you'd like to attend a free  Sit & Sew  and make placemats!  60% of home bound meals are delivered to men so please keep this in mind while sewing the placemats.

Our goal is to provide 1200 placemats this year. Please join us in our effort to make our seniors feel remembered and cared for by making placemats that are approximately 12” x 16” or 14” x 18”. 

Drop off your completed placemats at the shop.

If you want more information or have questions about this project, please call the shop (302)732-6304.
