Our last day at our current location is March 18th, 2023, we hope to be open a few weeks later at our new location and in time for the Meyersdale Maple Festival and Quilt Show, so enter a quilt (more information here) and plan to visit our new store. 

The Sewing Box Quilt Shop in Somerset was born out of a passion for quilting back in 2011.  With no local fabric store or quilt shop in the area, it quickly became a destination for avid quilters. As most of you know, a local bank has recently purchased our location at Georgian Place in Somerset.  This turn of events came out of the blue.  There were hopes of staying at Georgian Place in a different suite. However, that hope was recently dashed. A frantic and exhaustive search for an alternate location ensued, with no results as the deadline to vacate approaches quickly. The good news is The Sewing Box will not close but will relocate to Meyersdale, PA.  After much prayer and soul searching, I've decided to go into semi-retirement and sell the business to one of my trusted staff members.  Many of you have already met April Hershberger.  April is purchasing The Sewing Box and will be moving it to 144 Eleventh Ave, Meyersdale, PA  15552.  The distance is about 10 miles south of Somerset and a stones throw from the second Meyersdale exit off Interstate Route 219.  (Extremely easy to find!) Many things that you love about the shop will stay the same - fabric selection, classroom space, retreats, events, in-store notions discount, many of the same staff members, and I will be working and teaching.  April will continue the Janome dealership and honor all warranties.  Tim Watkins will also continue to service machines and honor all service contracts from the new location. The Sewing Box has been my passion since the start.  So please realize I'm putting it in good hands!  April has youth, energy, vision, mad social media skills, and a love for quilting.  There's no doubt she will continue the legacy and take it to the next level.  It's my hope that you'll support The Sewing Box at its new location, just as you've done in Somerset.  The last day we'll be open for business in Somerset is March 18th, 2023.

  Watch for a Grand Re-Opening in early April!

Why are you moving? 
Our current location has been sold and we were given a date of April 30th to vacate our current store.
Are you closing? 
​We will only be closed during the move, our last day at Somerset will be March 18th and we will announce our Grand Re-Opening via emails and social media for early April 2023.
Will you still offer classes? ​
Yes, we are building out a beautiful classroom space that will be only slightly smaller than our current classroom and still larger than any others nearby. 
What about my machine warranty? 
We will still be helping with all warranties as they are registered directly through Janome. 
Can I still drop my machine off for service? 
Yes, Tim Watkins, will still be picking up machines for service and you will still be able to pay for that service through our store.
Are you going to offer long arm quilting again? 
Yes! As soon as we are established at our new location we will begin offering long arm services again, watch your email and social media for those announcements. 
Where is the new location? 
144 Eleventh Ave Meyersdale, PA 15552. Just a few exits south on 219 of our current location. 
Will my rewards coupons transfer? 
Will my gift cards still be good? 
Are you still going to do Pin Club? 
Yes! The last Pin Club at our current location will be moved up one week to the last day we are open, March 18th, 2023.  We plan to be open again before the next pin club drawing in April, which is during the Meyersdale Maple Festival, so a great excuse to visit us at the new location!
Will you do Demo Night at the new location? 
We will continue those once we get established, look for them to begin around May. Again we will notify you via email and social media when Demo Nights resume.
Can we still do UFO on Thursday and Friday? 
Yes! The Plan is for UFO to still be available and as soon as we have gotten set up and ready for you we will let you know via email and social media when we are ready to resume UFOs.
