ROCKY MOUNT – Fork Mountain Quilting is set to open their specialty quilt shop in the Rocky Mount Marketplace shopping center at 400 Old Franklin Turnpike, Suite 115 on Saturday, August 7. The new quilting shop will offer quilting supplies, materials, and education. An additional long-arm quilting service be offered for customers needing to finish an already completed quilt top. A ribbon cutting will be held on Tuesday, August 5 at 10:00 a.m. with the grand opening scheduled for Saturday, August 7.
Owners Melissa and Todd Cassell started Fork Mtn Quilting in their home in 2020. An increased demand for their longarm quilting service and the need for high-quality fabrics prompted the expansion which will provide more space and a storefront. Future plans include a series of quilting classes for quilters of all skill levels.
“We are extremely excited to bring Fork Mtn Quilting to Rocky Mount and are committed to helping others breathe life into their quilting visions and inspirations. Creativity, community, and service are driving factors for us at Fork Mtn Quilting” say owners Todd and Melissa Cassell. “Our motto ‘the love of quilting is our common thread’ speaks to our commitment and dedication to bringing the wonderful world of quilting to this beautiful community.”
Cultural and Economic Development Director, Daniel Pinard, is excited for the addition of Fork Mtn Quilting. “Quilting has significant cultural significance to our town and region, and we are excited for them to set up shop.”
Once open, Fork Mtn Quilting hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
