Waterwheel House Quilt Shop

A modern aesthetic thrives at Waterwheel House Quilt Shop in Londonderry, Vermont, thanks to the keen eye of its skilled caretaker.

Anything but Traditional

Waterwheel House Quilt Shop in Londonderry, Vermont, melds old and new. In 2008, shop owner Shelley Sas and her husband, Andrew, bought and renovated a 1790s farmhouse into the quilt shop.


Brights to Whites

Quilted samples—ranging from small bags to full-size quilts—incorporating brights and white present a pleasing juxtaposition to the shop’s rural charm.

Meet the Owners

Andrew and Shelley Sas (owners) and Gracie, the shop dog.

Improv Piecing

Pick Up Sticks, one of Shelley’s original designs, features improvisational piecing.

Growing Interest

Shelley’s love for sewing budded when she started designing felted wool penny rug projects.

Something New

At Waterwheel House Quilt Shop, many of the classes use art-inspired techniques, as illustrated by this mixed media wall hanging. Quilters also can learn sashiko embroidery and paper-piecing techniques.

Starter Packs

Assembled grab-and-go bundles of fat quarters are a big hit with quilters looking for a starter mix of fabric to use in their next project.

Stripe It Rich

Shop co-owner Shelley Sas and shop manager Judith Ackerman designed Stripe It Rich for Quilt Sampler® Fall/Winter 2012 magazine.

Machine-Quilting Details

Shop co-owner Andrew Sas machine-quilted an allover stipple motif across the Courthouse Steps-style throw.
