Welcome to Calico Gals, the home of Row by Row Experience!

Calico Gals Is Open Again!

We did it, we have now opened the door again to you, our friends

Even with our door open, we will continue our curbside service. Only 8 customers at a time will be in the store. We ask others to wait outside until someone has left.

And . . we will still offer our Facebook Live Shopping! Sunday Sewing in your Sweatpants and Thursday Shenanigans! Check it out on the Calico Gals Facebook page.

We are back to help you with all your quilting and sewing needs, and we’re glad to see you all again! We missed you!
