SewEndipitous in Rock Hill, South Carolina, is our Grand Prize Winner for the USA!

Read on to learn more about this large, beautiful shop that offers a plethora of classes for all skill levels!

Please tell us your store’s story.

SewEndipitous was born out of a love of remembering a childhood surrounded by sewing, quilting, and crafting.

It came from those precious memories of grandmothers, aunts, and my mother Emily Sue — watching these ladies sew, quilt, crochet, and knit, infusing every stitch with love for friends and family.

I learned all my skills young and fostered them as I grew. The joy and the passion of such traditional arts are something one just can’t explain — it must be experienced. The truth is these nearly-lost arts, once discovered, are best defined as SewEndipitous – Where Unexpected Happiness is Found in Every Stitch!

For me, Lisa Renee’ Baker, SewEndiptious is a way to pass on this multi-generational craft and to share my love of fabric, sewing, quilting, etc., with other like-hearted friends unknown — my SewEndipitous Sisters (and brothers).

“Shopping for fabric at Sewendipitous is like a therapy session – each piece soothes my soul and sparks my creativity.”


For those who have not seen the store, please describe it.

Our shop is 5,000 square feet and offers quilting fabric, HUSQVARNA® VIKING® sewing, embroidery and serger machines and accessories, as well as Arrow® and Kangaroo® Sewing Furniture, and our exclusive quilting and sewing themed SewEndipitous® Designs.

We are located in beautiful Rock Hill, South Carolina, just minutes from Charlotte, North Carolina, off Exit 77 of Interstate 77.

Discover quilt fabric, quilting and sewing classes, sewing machines, sewing furniture, and a wonderful quilting community.

Among the standard quilt shop items mentioned above, we are proud of our SewEndipitous® Designs, which is our exclusive line of quilting and sewing-inspired creations, including greeting cards, adult coloring books, journals, calendars, artwork, and eventually, our own line of quilting fabric. Our very own Steve Baker (Lisa’s brother) brings his unique style and creativity to everything in the SewEndipitous® Designs treasures.

We are just on the border of Charlotte, NC. Therefore, there are too many attractions to mention them all. To name a few, we have tons of golf courses, Carowinds Theme Park, Riverwalk Outdoor Recreational, arts and theatres, and great things in a small town giving a big city vibe.

Please tell us about your staff.

Our staff is absolutely wonderful. The ladies that work, teach, or make shop samples are what keeps SewEndipitous running and special. I could not do this journey without them. They keep me strong even on a down day!

When asked about the impact of the Local Quilt Shop Contest, SewEndipitous replied:

“The contest gives the customers something to buzz about and work together in efforts to climb the Leaderboard during the voting phase, as they all want to see an amazing ByAnnie Trunk Show in THEIR shop if their LQS wins.

We won South Carolina last year. The Live showcase that ByAnnie did for our shop really brought in new shoppers from surrounding counties, as they didn’t know we existed prior. Also, during the Trunk Show which we had during our All Carolina Shop Hop, shoppers came in looking for the Trunk Show due to hearing about it on your videos. The influx of new customers is such a blessing. Thank you! As an added bonus, it really has sparked others’ interest to make bags and totes, which I love, so therefore, I was able to beef up my stock on all things ByAnnie!”

The ladies are so very helpful, yet do not hover as I peruse all the beautiful fabrics, kits, machines, furniture, etc. I feel like a child in a huge candy shop when I visit SewEndipitous!! Thank you for helping me with my projects. I am a novice, yet you make me feel like a real quilter!!! Thank you.
