Calico Gals is the home of Row by Row Experience, Quilters Trek, and Wooly Block Adventure. We invite you to come visit our fun and friendly store and see where it all began



In 2001 Janet Lutz and a business partner opened Calico Gals by transforming the upper floors of an 1860s barn near the historic Erie Canal in Central New York into a cozy haven for stitchers and quilters. It soon became a popular destination for local quilters and travelers from all directions including Canada. Janet became the sole owner of Calico Gals in 2006.

In November 2009 Calico Gals moved to the current location on New Court Avenue in Syracuse. The store offers wonderful features for customers:
* We are a Quilt Sampler Featured Shop and an Accuquilt Signature Shop
* Easy access to the main shopping area and classroom
* Free and ample parking space
* Beautiful large windows to let in natural light
* Radiant floor heating to keep you cozy in the cooler months


At Calico Gals we take pride in delighted customers, an enthusiastic staff, homegrown patterns, and popular events and retreats. The shop is pleasantly overstuffed with a huge array of cottons and flannels. A variety of classes and workshops introduce the latest trends and techniques for beginner and experienced sewing enthusiasts.

Janet operates the busy shop hand-in-hand with a creative, fun-loving staff. The addition of Elna, Baby Lock, and Handi Quilter machines and Koala Studios makes the store an essential stop for everyone who loves sewing and crafting.

Janet has been awarded many honors: KeyBank’s Key4Women National Advisory Board, KeyBank national advertising campaign, Key4Women Achieve Award, member of the class of 2012 of the US Small Business Administration Emerging 200, board member of the Quilters Consortium of New York, and Central New York Women in Business Award.
