Welcome to Savannah Sewing Center ~ Colonial Quilts.  We opened in 1981 at the first location on DeRenne Avenue.  As we grew we moved to Eisenhower Drive and finally to Largo Drive.  In outgrowing a single store front we took on the space next door.  We now have 3000 square feet.  Those 3000 square feet incorporate our on-site sewing machine Service Center, a classroom and samples designed to inspire.   We strive to make your visit to our shop a wonderful experience both online and in our shop in Savannah, Georgia.  We have been in business since 1981 and are the second generation to own and operate the business.

We have over 3500 bolts of fabrics~ batiks, solids, novelty and much more.  We carry most fabric lines.  We also carry a full line of sewing notions, rulers and those little things you won't find at a chain store, like a friendly and knowledgeable staff.

There is nothing better than a real quilt shop!

Classes to get you started...


Pillowcase Dress

Make this easy adorable sun dress or jumper in just an hour or two. In this class you will learn to make your own continuous bias, make a perfect french seam, and use a negative pattern. This is a free class. We ask you to pay $5 to hold your place--you will receive a $5 store credit when you attend. We also request that you purchase fabric for the dress at Colonial Quilts. This is not a beginning sewing class--you must know how to use your machine. But if you make quilts and think you can't make a dress, this class is for you! Don't have a little girl to stitch this dress for? We'll ship it to Little Dresses for Africa for you! [http://www.littledressesforafrica.org/blog/]
