Welcome to the Barefoot Quilter

Welcome to The Barefoot Quilter, a family-owned and operated quilt shop located in Western New York, in the little town of Rushford. Owner and master quilter Audrey Wolfer is pleased to offer any advice or inspiration you may need for your current and future projects.


In our building, a refurbished old-time hardware store, we combine the charm of the old-fashioned general mercantile with high-quality designer fabrics of all types: bright colors, blenders, batiks, wide backings and much more, from companies like Moda, Timeless Treasures, Quilting Treasures, Northcott, Blank Quilting, Andover, Windham, and Anthology Batiks. We are also proud to have pre-cuts like charm packs and jelly rolls available for purchase. Currently we house more than 560 bolts of fabric, but we are continually adding to our collection, so make sure to stop by often. There’s always something new to look at!

Thread and Batting:

In addition to the fabric, we sell high-quality cotton thread like Superior Thread’s King Tut variegated quilting thread and Mettler silk finish, along with 1422 yard spools and 6452 yard cones of Aurifil. We carry some of the Quilter’s Dream brand of batting (made in the USA), which includes Dream Blend (70% cotton/30% poly), and Dream Wool. We also carry Warm & Natural cotton and Soft & Bright poly by the Warm Company. These 90” wide battings are all sold by the yard, plus we sell some packaged batts from crib to king sizes. We also have a large assortment of other notions to suit all your sewing or quilting needs.
