When our local quilt shop decided to close their doors, our community of quilters here in Bensalem, PA, worried where we would shop next to replenish our fabric stashes (a vital part of being a quilter!) and where we would gather to sew as friends and fellow stitchers.
While it sounded like a crazy idea at the time, ultimately our decision to open our own quilt store (drafting a business plan, scouting a location, and throwing open the doors of The Quilt Academy within 3 short weeks) was a dream come true! We’re passionate about teaching our customers the art of quilting and truly enjoy supporting their creative endeavors and watching them succeed at quilting.
Originally, we focused on offering classes and long arm quilting services. Today, we carry a beautiful selection of quilting fabrics, sewing notions, quilting kits (and more), in addition to providing quilting classes, long arm rentals, and custom quilting services, as well as hosting fun activities like our weekly Friday Night Sewcials.
The Quilt Academy is the kind of place where you can cuddle up with your favorite quilt, and a warm beverage, and enjoy our relaxing store atmosphere in the company of friends (that includes our staff!) who enjoy quilting as much as you do.
Whether you drop by our shop at 3671 Hulmeville Road or visit us here online, we are committed to providing you with a pleasant shopping experience and prompt, friendly service!
