Please note: On the map you will see a street labeled Hazelhurst, just to the right of the red balloon. That is the wrong name! The name of the street is actually Marisa Heights. So, when you’re looking for the store, it’s at the corner of New Court Ave. and Marisa Heights (which is a teeny little street with a big sign).

Calico Gals is the home of Row by Row Experience

Our 2016 row, Drip, Drip, Drop was designed by Joan Ford of Hummingbird Highway. We love Joan’s designs and her detailed, easy-to-follow patterns. Stop in to Calico Gals any time through September 8 and receive one free copy of this fun pattern. We have kits, too!
