A New Stop to Shop: Patchwork Plus

Judi West, owner of Patchwork Plus located along Route 20 in the Town of Marcellus, stands among her more than 7,500 bolts of high quality fabric in her new 5,000 square foot showroom.

Marcellus is now on the radar of quilting enthusiasts!! The popular quilting shop, Patchwork Plus, has built a new fabulous home along Cherry Valley Turnpike (U.S. Route 20) near the intersection of Rt. 174 in the Town of Marcellus. Owners Judi and Tom West say the move to Marcellus was the right one. “We raised our children in Marcellus and the idea to open a guilt shop grew out of my participation in the Thumbstall Quilt Guild which met in Marcellus,” explained Patchwork Plus owner Judi West. West says she started shop 19 years ago with a dream and 250 bolts of fabric. Now her new store, which her husband built for her, houses more than 7,500 bolts of high quality fabric brought in from all over the world displayed over 5,000 square feet. The wonderful new space incorporates natural light from skylights, high ceilings and a country lodge-feel. Among the bolts and bolts of fabric of every color imaginable, there is a stone fireplace complete with rocking chairs. “That area is for the husbands,” says West. “We surveyed our customers before we developed the new building plans and nearly every one said they would like to see an area the husbands could enjoy.” West says her new place includes a room for sewing and quilting classes. “We have classes in basic quilting and sewing machine use. We can teach you how to make any kind of fabric craft including purses, wall hangings and even how to knit!” West says quilting has increased in popularity over the years. “Quilting in the 1800’s was a necessity. Now you can go out to a store and buy a blanket. Today quilters quilt as a way to express themselves and to do something for the people they love.” West says anyone can learn how to quilt. “Sewing machines are much easier to use today and there are many accessories which make the process easier including entire quilting kits.” Already West says she has had visitors from all over the country in her shop. “Quilters never leave home without their Quilter’s Travel Companion book. A true quilter is always on the look-out for new fabric and patterns. Each shop you visit is a little different.” Patchwork Plus is proud to be the company which provides sewing machines for the national quilters’ conference, Quilting by the Lake, held each year in Morrisville, New York. Judi and her shop also recently raised more than 1,000 for breast cancer research by holding a “Make Your Bra into a Purse” sewing contest. The money raised went to the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of Central New York.

Husband enjoy visiting Patchwork Plus for its comfortable nesting spot near a stone fireplace.

Patchwork Plus is the perfect place to find a matching spool of thread!

A spacious classroom is available for instruction in quilting to basic sewing machine use.

Judi West finds high quality fabric from all over the country and the world. Patchwork Plus is a quilter’s paradise.
