All About Material Girls Quilt Boutique
Welcome to Material Girls! Where we always have fun, fabric, and friendship.
Our shop is a family owned and run business. Amy (Daughter) and Robin (Mom) own the store. Mike (Dad) is the certified Bernina technician, and Wendy (Daughter) work at the store full time. Seth and Mary (Son and Daughter in law) pop in every once in a while to lend a helping hand. Keith, Christi, and Spencer (Son, Daughter in Law, and grandson) are stationed in Florida, so you will see them when they come back up to visit.
Material Girls opened their doors in April 2003. We started out in a 1,500 square foot location but soon realized that we were going to need more space. In July of 2003, we became an Authorized Bernina Sewing Machine Dealer. With the addition of the world’s best sewing machines, in April of 2004 we moved to a much larger and current location, 5000 square feet. We are located on Route 301 North in the wonderful town of LaPlata, MD. In January of 2012 we were given an opportunity to expand to include the store front next to our current location. After a lot of family meetings we decided to take the leap and expand to include an additional 3,300 square feet. In April of 2012, as we celebrated our 9th year, we opened the new section to the public as our new Bernina Showroom and Sew-ology Lounge.
The Sew-ology Lounge is a rent-able space for any group or individual. We have sewing tables with a Bernina ready to be used for you to create whatever your heart desires. We have tool kits and machines available so there is little investment needed to come in to sew a project. If you are new to sewing and want to make sure this is the hobby for you, then come in and set up a time to rent your table. Or if you are the creative person that just doesn't have the space to have all the things you need, then come sew at Material Girls. This space is also perfect for guild or Bee retreats for that weekend getaway to sew with no interruptions.
Our store is bright and cheery every day! With over 5,000 bolts to choose from we know you will find just what you are looking for. We also have a wide selections of ribbons and trims. In the Bernina Showroom we have also added a section of yarns for the knitting and crochet classes we also teach in our new classroom space. Our wide aisles are perfect for shopping carts full of goodies or any customers that may have a wheelchair or stroller. We also have chairs and a red polka-dot couch for the wonderful significant others who may accompany you to the store.
We are the small town store where our customers are always greeted by name and a hello. If you are a new customer, don't worry, we will soon learn your name too. Please stop by to say hi. We look forward to seeing you soon.
