Bolt, a new quilting and home store, has opened in Cloverdale, CA, and owners Kate Barrett and Peter Rosson have paired their interests and talents to offer an eclectic blend of quilting and sewing fabrics combined with an excellent selection of housewares.
Bolt is located right in the center of downtown Cloverdale in a beautifully restored historic building. The interior space is beautiful with its high ceilings and light flooding in through the windows, and my first impulse was to sit down in one of their beautifully upholstered chairs and take it all in.
As for the fabrics, you will find an eclectic collection of goods including many organics from Cloud 9 and Clothworks along with linen blends and gorgeous prints. The shop boasts a sewing area in the back that will accommodate 8 people for workshops. Many more classes will be added to the roster after the holidays, so please check on the schedule on their website.
Peter's keen eye for quality and style is immediately apparent in his selection of home décor and housewares that grace the shop. Bolt offers a lovely selection of linen toweling, flatware, and powder coat serving ware along with a great deal more. I was awed by the collection of goods, the well-presented displays, and the overall ambience of the shop.
Cloverdale is only 90 miles north of San Francisco, and you might also want to check out Plank Coffee next door for a great experience. I did, and I will certainly go back again. I wish both Kate and Peter continued success in their new venture, and am looking forward to seeing this business thrive.
