B'spa quilt shop turns 1 on Halloween

Come Halloween, patrons at Almost One of a Kind Quilt Shop in Ballston Spa will have a place to warm up and celebrate, with or without a costume.

Oct. 31 is the store’s one-year anniversary and there should be plenty of cozy quilts (and quilt-making supplies) as well as chocolate on hand, co-owner Barbara Haynes said. Special sales and giveaways will be held all day on Saturday to mark the event.

Haynes and Vicki Feldman opened the shop amid a sinking economy last fall, but their business in Ballston Spa’s Art Alley is riding it out.

“We’re paying our bills,” Haynes said.

The store offers loads of cloth, tools and quilt patterns for every season or event, including Judaica-themed patterns. The store also holds classes for quilting techniques like reverse appliqué, cathedral windows and paper piecing. Adults and children as young as 3 are welcome, Haynes said.

Almost One of a Kind does its part to support local artists by selling designs by two area quilters, she added.

The store is located at 22 Washington St. Call 363-0219 for more information.
