Appletree Fabrics has been serving the Auburn, Massachusetts quilting community for 25 years.

Ginny Radloff is the proud owner of the Appletree Fabrics, as of February 1, 2017. Ginny is looking forward to this new adventure and to meeting and working with both past and future customers. Ginny has been actively quilting for the past 26 years and has owned a her own longarm quilting business Radical Quilts for the past 12 years. Through Radical Quilts, Ginny offered long-arm quilting services and was a Judy Niemeyer Quiltworx Certified Instructor and Shop. You can read more about Ginny and Radical Quilts on our Meet Ginny page.

Appletree Fabrics is now a Judy Niemeyer Certified shop. The only one in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire! You will have a location to take the Technique of the Month Classes (Glacier Star, Mariners Compass, Paradise in Bloom and, the new one, Vintage Rose).

Pillowcases for Texas: Make a pillowcase (or more if you like) to be sent to the shelters and distributed to the displaced in Texas as a result of hurricane Harvey. Drop them off at Appletree Fabrics by Sept 30th. Ginny will gather them and send to a local guild in Texas who will be distributing them. Here is a video on the “Hot Dog” pillowcase method if you need a refresher.

September - December class schedule is now posted.

I am so EXCITED! My first Row by Row design. The theme for 2017 is On the Go. Make sure you come into the shop (starting June 21st) to pick up your free pattern and purchase a kit. I chose a wagon full of happy animals because I can't help but smile when I look at how excited they are to be going for a ride. These animals are sure to add some joy to your day!

Beginning June 21, 2017, visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows! Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize
