Special Events

Stop and see us during the Quilters Trek 2020!!
Are you starting to plan your summer adventures? Make sure a trip to Country Stitches in East Lansing is one of them. We will be participating in the 2020 Quilters Trek (the new name for the Row by Row Experience)! Stop by between now and September 8 and pick up a free pattern to create our row. This year’s theme is “True Blue”. Our row/blocks feature the Ohio Star block – just like our logo and a Michigan block with a print that features cities throughout the state as well as the Great Lakes. Create a quilt with 32 different blocks (or 8 different rows) from eight different shops and you could win a prize (see store for complete details)! We have kits for our row, and while supplies last, our kits have 2 1/2" Fabric Tokens tucked inside. We can’t wait to see you!

Summer QUILT-A-THON
East Lansing & Jackson
Friday, July 17, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
Saturday, July 18, 10:30 am – 3:00 pm

Join us in helping our community.  Spend the day with family and friends finishing quilts for local charities.  No special skills needed. Everyone welcome!  Must sign up, limited space due to "social distancing". 

Due to COVID-19 we will do the following to keep everyone safe. No food or drink shared, sorry no potluck.  Please bring, order or go out to get food for yourself.  All  tables will be 6’ apart and only one person will work at each table unless they come with someone. All tables will be cleaned before and after the Quilt-A-Thon.  Masks will be worn by all.  Tools won't be shared.  Please bring scissors, chenille needle and thimble if desired. Other opportunities to help are available: take fabric home to make quilt tops, take finished quilt tops and backing home and finish the quilts.  Just ask and we'll find a way for you to help.  
- Sign up and help us finish quilts for those in need. Every person makes a difference!
