Pieces & Patches came into existence when a Lexington quilter could not obtain quality fabric for quilting locally. She decided to open a quilt shop that would provide not only quality fabric but the sewing notions and patterns needed to complete quilts. She opened Pieces & Patches in the Old Mill located on Highway 1 in Lexington. In May of 2013 the decision was made to seek a more accommodating facility that would provide easier access, adequate parking, and other amenities for both customers and staff. Once the move to the new location was complete, the Janome dealership was finalized and the second suite was added to the shop.
On July 1, 2013, the shop was purchased by Ken & Shirley Johnson. Shirley’s vision for Pieces & Patches was to continue in making it a gathering place for quilters. A place where quilters could come and learn, share, and grow – a place of inspiration, innovation, and camaraderie. So far that dream is coming true!
