Welcome to Calico Printworks


Calico Printworks designs and publishes easy to make quilting books and patterns. Our designers owned a quilt shop for 29 years, giving them a unique understanding of what quilters ask for when making a quilt. Their shop, Calico Canvas and Colors was a favorite destination for hundreds of customers in the Wisconsin and northern Illinois area. In addition to book and patterns, we offer fabulous Run Away and Sew Quilting Retreats.

Our Run Away and Sew Retreats have been very popular and offer a way to get away from daily life and indulge in 3 days of quilting, fun and fellowship. See Retreat page for more info.

Don’t have time to finish a quilt before that gift occasion arrives? Visit the Quilts for Sale page and see if we have one available that may work for you. We’ll never tell that you didn’t make it yourself!

Jane, Linda and Kathi invite you to browse through the offerings on the Book page or the Pattern page. Our newest pattern Shelby Lane is now available! Go to the patterns page and check it out! Please contact us if we can be of help to you! All questions, orders or inquiries can be made to Calico Printworks via email at calicoprintworks@gmail.com. You may also visit our Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/CalicoPrintworks to make a retail purchase .
