It’s about community. A Block Away Quilt Shop is a full service shop. We started with an idea; then we started an online shop and now we have a physical shop. We have both online and physical. As long as we can, we will continue to grow, but we know that we can’t do this alone. It’s going to take you helping us. Please share your thoughts, your feelings, your questions and your knowledge too. We will always give you credit. Explore our shop online or in person, buy some things for quilting, sign up for our newsletter, take a class or join in with other shop events, and share us with everyone you know. We can become a community, a quilting community. We are the official Janome, Elna, Handi Quilter, Ever Sewn, OESD Stabilizer, Aurifil and Robison Anton Thread Dealers in the Rio Grande Valley. We service all makes and models of sewing machines. Need a part we have it or can get it for you. Have a Singer Feather weight, we have parts and machines just waiting for you. We offer scissor sharpening also. We are a Row By Row shop. Be sure to check out our license plate when available. Sign up for our BOM program. We also offer a rewards program to ALL customers, it is free and gives you back 10% in a certificate you can use in the shop. Visit us at http://www.ablockaway.com or just stop in.
