About Us

Our caring and creative staffs are here to help inspire you to create.

"Our mission is to provide the ultimate customer service experience," Michele Santerre, Owner

Classes give students freedom to explore hand and machine quilting, paper piecing, applique, color theory, art quilting, and more nearly every day. Through special events, trunk shows, and weekend demonstrations, quilters share tools and techniques and tap possibilities that trigger new interests. We run special events and sales each month, to recognize quilting accomplishments. The Running Stitch also offers long-arm machine quilting services and sells sewing machines in a recently enhanced sewing center. All the staff at the Running Stitch has an open-door policy for insights and ideas.
