We are reopening! Our first day back will be next Monday, May 18. We've been busy with your phone requests and making thousands of masks. The most important things we've been doing over quarantine....getting ready for you! As we re-open, we will definitely be remembering the social distancing guidelines as set forth by the CDC. Please know we are stepping up our efforts to keep our staff and customers safe in the following ways.
We will be implementing the following policy until further notice to those who choose to shop in-store with us. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at (507) 377-1163. Hope to see you soon!
Practice Social Distancing
We will be opening at 50% capacity. This will provide ample room to move around the shop with plenty of space. Due to this restriction you may be asked to wait outside, but our front porch is the perfect place to relax.
Use Hand Sanitizer
We will have a hand sanitizing station for you as you arrive. Please use it to protect yourself and us! Sanitizer will also be available throughout the shop.
Wear a Mask
Our staff will be wearing masks. We would like to make them available to you as well. If you don't have one, please use curbside pick-up or you can purchase a fabric mask for only $5.00. As always, if you're not feeling well, please wait to visit us until you are healthy.
A Clean Shop
Our staff will be wiping down the cashier, cutting counters, office areas, and all high-touch surfaces regularly and throughout the day. We will continue sanitizing for the foreseeable future.
Arrange a Private Shopping Experience
If you prefer, we will arrange a private shopping time for you. We can help you with purchases over the phone (507) 377-1163 or online (www.calicohutchquiltshop.com).

SPRING QUILT RETREAT:
The health and safety of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance. At this time, due to the ongoing and widespread reported cases of COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone until August, the Calico Hutch’s Spring 2020 Retreat - "There's No Place Like Gnome."
This is out of an abundance of caution and in recognition of the current situation in Minnesota and surrounding states where many of you reside and would be traveling to and from. We recognize that we would be unable to provide you with the experience you expect from our retreats if the anxiety and worry about infection was constantly top of mind.
With that said, the Calico Hutch would like to offer four options, with regards to your payment. Please review these options and let us know which option best suits your situation.
1. Move your payment to our RESCHEDULED retreat:
- Caboose Retreat | August 3-5 (Monday-Wednesday)
- Extended stay for Caboose | Sunday, August 2
2. Move your payment to our Spring Retreat 2021
- Weekend Retreat | August 7-9 (Friday-Sunday)
- Extended stay for Retreat is Thursday, August 6
- First Weekend Retreat | April 9-11 (Friday-Sunday)
- Extended Stay for First Weekend | Thursday, April 8
- Caboose Retreat | April 12-14 (Monday- Wednesday)
- Extended Stay for Caboose | Thursday, April 15
3. Move your payment to the February 2021 Caboose Retreat (February 1, 2, & 3 )
- Second Weekend Retreat | April 16-18 (Friday-Sunday)
- Extended Stay for Second Weekend | Monday, April 19
4. Refund of your payment except deposits
- Sorry, there is no Extended Stay for the February Caboose Retreat
Please consider the above options and let us know your decision by April 15. Give us a call at 507-377-1163 to let us know your decision. After April 15 we will be opening up the rescheduled retreat to everyone. Also, be on the lookout for a letter we are mailing on Monday with all the above details.
We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your business during these challenging times.
