About Friends Around the Block

Friends Around the Block is friendly neighborhood quilt shop located in Colusa, California. Our store offers premium fabrics, helpful sewing notions, high quality quilting supplies, and fun classes for quilters of all skill levels. The shop is a dream come true for owner, Carol Ann Lindquist. A long-time quilter herself, Carol loves to surround herself with quality fabrics and quilting products.

In 2013, she and her husband Peter opened a quilt shop in their home town of Colusa, California. Just two years later, they moved their growing business into a beautiful historical building just a few blocks away. The new location (on the corner of 8th and Market) has more room for merchandise, and ample classroom space.

Carol's knowledge, experience, and passion for quilting are evident in her store's friendly atmosphere and carefully selected inventory. In addition to offering a wide variety of the industry's finest quilting merchandise, Carol has transformed her shop into a comfortable, community gathering place, where quilters can enjoy learning and socializing. 

Friends Around the Block also offers classes covering all aspects of quilting, including hand piecing, applique and machine quilting, for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.  Carol, and her experienced staff are genuinely interested in customers' creative endeavors, and helping those who want to advance their skills. We invite you to see us in person where you may shop, browse for ideas, or visit our Online Store. Either way, our staff is happy to help you with your latest projects.
