GQCCC’s Country Store is a guild effort to offer quilting needlework and other donated items for sale as well as letting guild members consign items that they make.   Throughout the year, guild members meet at the Farmhouse to prepare fabric sets and other items sold at the Country Store.  You are welcome to join in the fun! Our Country Store work party dates will be posted in the newsletter and on the calendar at the Farmhouse. Please check with the CS Chairs for detailed information.

The Country Store emphasizes quilting and needlework craftsmanship of our guild.   Each member is asked to contribute two quality items or make a $10 donation payable to the guild.  Members who have made the required contribution may sell consignment items in the Guild’s Country Store. The Guild receives a 20% commission on all sold consignment items.

To promote the boutique feeling, the Country Store offers from donated fabric:  fat quarters, both charm and strip packs, and various quilt block and kit packages, as well as some bulk fabric. Boutique Items such as pincushions, totes, placemats, table runners, etc.  Moda Bake Shop has many free patterns available for our use.

Top Selling Categories:

  1. Fabric – W.O.F. cuts which are 1/2 yard or larger in cotton.
  2. Books – Quilt related books with current quilting techniques and information
  3. Handmade Boutique Items – These are items which you would give as a gift
  4. Miscellaneous Items – These are items which relate to quilting, i.e. Fat Quarters, Quilting Patterns, Rulers, Tools, etc.

Feel free to also include items found in a quilt shop, sewing machine shop or needlework store that you no longer need:  these items are ideal for Country Store sales.  Things you may no longer need might be very enticing for someone else.

We accept donations at the General Meetings and at the Farmhouse.  Please come by the Country Store table in the lobby at the General Meeting to turn in your donation.  If dropping off at the Farmhouse, please clearly label your donation as for the Country Store and place them in the Blue Container labeled Country Store.  If you have a question or have a large donation to make, please contact Mary for Donations
