The Quilting Bee is an independently-owned quilt shop located in Spokane Valley, WA, where it has been for over 40 years. We like to say we are locally owned and inspired! Owners Scot and Treasure Auble carry on the legacy of an exemplary customer experience, extensive selection and quality, and outstanding machine sales and service options.

The FAFB pattern we are using is a pleated pattern using two layers of cotton fabric. This pattern is a Missouri Quilt Star Company pattern and can be found at https://youtu.be/X -R80x3Spw. Make sure you leave a space between the big X and the dash. Just so you know, a study quoted in the New York Times stated that two layers of quilting fabric is 80% effective and that the best quilting fabric for filtering is batik.
At this time our store hours are weekdays, 10am till 6pm and Saturdays 10am till 5pm. Yes! We will be open on Saturdays! Note you will need a mask to enter our store due to a large amount of our much loved customers being in the compromised age group. If you do not have one, you can purchase or borrow one from us in the front of the store. We have hand sanitizer at the front door and throughout the store and encourage you to use it. In order to implement appropriate social distancing we will be limiting the number of people in the store at any one time. For your safety we will be sanitizing regularly even though the CDC has now concluded that the virus does not last long on surfaces.
We will resume classes at a future date with limited sizes and will keep you informed when they resume. Our repair department is open and ready to help you keep your machine in top condition.
Thank you all for being part of the Quilting Bee family. We will all get through this, together!
Treasure, Scot and the staff of The Quilting Bee.
