Experience the charm of an historic general store as a quilt shop. The Marsh Store welcomes you into the world of quilting with a wide variety of fabrics, quilting supplies, fibre art media and longarm machine quilting service. Tim, Shirley and Nellie, the store dog, started the quilting side of the business in April 2005. Since then they have developed a collection of fabrics to suit all styles of quilters. Walk through the door and become a friend.

When the store was built by Jacob and Louisa Marsh in 1869 it served the community of Coldstream in many ways. Over time it also included the post office, telegraph/telephone exchange, council meetings, the library, insurance office and school tours. Today we welcome groups for meetings, run classes and share the store history with anyone who drops in for a visit and look-around. Store artifacts are on display and some are still being used.

Customer service is important to us. Groups of more than 10 are offered 20% off and coffee or tea while they shop. We have limited space so we have a sale twice a year with 30% off almost everything. Sale dates are a week in July about the 24th and the days between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, December 27 to 31. If we do not have something you need in stock and can order it, special orders are 25% off. We offer bolts and rolls of batting at a special price to charity quilt makers.

Look on the "What's New" page for monthly updates. New fabric, fun classes, and sales dates are a few of the important things to share.

Featured at our store are the "Among Brenda's Quilts" pattern line. Brenda, a friend from Strathroy and 'designer-in-residence', displays samples of her finished projects so you can see the original pictured on the pattern cover.

Open Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm. Other times by chance or appointment
