Local Quilt Shops/ Brick and Mortar

A small, family-operated dry good and fabric shop focused on traditional fabrics from various manufacturers. Offerings include basic sewing notions, cotton and calico prints, wide backings, garment fabric, fleece, flannel, minky and batting by the yard. This is a no-frills old-fashioned shop with a great selection of basics at a can’t beat price. I love the large selection in each color of the rainbow and purchase a lot of basic background and backing fabrics here.
