The Village Stitchery was established August 15, 1982 in Oblong, IL. We are a family owned and operated business who do our best to please our customers. Lisa Pinkston, the owner, can be found assisting customers six days a week. Many other helping hands also help to keep the shop running, including Lisa's sister Lori. As they say "It takes a Village".
We take great pride in the many samples that have been created to inspire and delight our guests. Enticing vignettes invite you to explore in our 2400 sq. ft. shop.
The Village Stitchery has over 5,000 plus bolts of quality fabrics from Moda, Riley Blake, Maywood, Hoffman and many others. A large selection of notions are offered from many lines including Quilters Select, Creative Grids, Gypsy Quilter, Aurifil, Filtec, Sewline and more. Books and craft patterns are ordered regularly to keep up with the latest and greatest designers.
We also carry Home Decorating items including rugs by Homespice Decor, paint by Olde Century Colors, Swan Creek Candles, florals, wreaths and other seasonal items. Gifts including handmade quilts, clothing and crafts are also available for the special people in your life.
Classes are taught in our large classroom area in the rear of the shop. An APQS longarm machine is also available on site for rental.
A Retreat Center was added in 2016 for the enjoyment of our guests. We invite you to bring your family or friends and spend some time creating in our spacious classroom. Fourteen beds are available with a complete kitchen in the adjoining building. Call for availabilty.
Come join us for a unique day of shopping in the one and only Oblong.
We look forward to seeing you.
