About Briny Bee

Briny Bee, located in Powder Springs, Georgia, was organized as an LLC in May 2008. The original plan was to do longarm quilting and the occasional small embroidery project. But over time we’ve evolved and now have an ever-growing inventory of quilt-shop-quality, 100% cotton fabrics; batting, including Quilters Dream, Warm and Natural, and Warm and White; thread, including Aurifil, So Fine, and Isacord; stabilizers; books; patterns; and quilting tools. We’re always on the lookout for great buys and we love being able to pass along the savings to our quilting friends.

Our regular customers appreciate the convenience of picking fabric for backs and binding when they drop off their projects for quilting. During the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic many also said they felt safe being the only shopper in the studio, with the one-on-one attention being a bonus.

By the way, there’s a SPECIAL DEAL for longarm customers who buy fabric for their back or binding at Briny Bee. See the Price List for details.

Briny Bee works with customers by appointment, and this has worked out very well for everyone. It allows us to be away from the Studio when necessary to shop for fabric and other needs, and participate in quilt expos, etc. It has also allowed us to be available for the (sometimes odd) hours that work well for our quilting friends. It is our pleasure to accommodate our customers when they need to meet after hours or on weekends.

Quilting Emergency!!  Some might say they didn’t know that was a thing.  But it’s real and it’s not all that uncommon for a customer to call with an after-hours quilting emergency (such as running out of thread or stabilizer, or needing just a little more of a fabric they’ve bought from us).  In most cases we can meet their need and delivery is often available for established, in-area customers.
If you have a quilt top to quilt, you need a quilt for a gift, you have a damaged quilt that needs repair, you have an embroidery project in mind, or you need fabric or other supplies for a project, let us know.  We can’t wait to meet you because we have so much fun providing all of those things and making new quilting friends.
