Here will be my little page devoted to Quilting. At first, it was going to say in Michigan, but my readers are not all from Michigan. And I want you to help me grow the list, so I can’t say just in Michigan.
I live in an area that has quite a few shops, and I’ve done a little driving just to get some fabric.
(Thank you Cabin Fever Shop Hop!)
If you have a shop you think the world should know about, (okay, my readers should know about. lol) then please share!
I like shopping online, but brick and mortar shops are still the best place to get your fabric!
First, are the shops that I have visited, in no real order…
The Stitchery Howell, MI (a good mix of fabric, some great reproductions and florals. Classes offered. A Elna and Janome sewing machine dealer)
Monarch Quilts Brighton, MI (a lot of pretty modern prints, some really great classes and friendly staff)
Creative Quilt Kits Brighton, MI (They have a HUGE batik selection! Don’t let the name fool you, they aren’t just kits. There are entire rooms of bolts to look through)
Jennifer’s Quilt Shop Pinckney, MI (a great mix of modern, civil war and other repros, as well as some good solids and novelty prints)
Wendy’s Simple Stitches (doesn’t exist anymore, but I miss it very much. Wendy used to do business out of a little yellow house on D-19, right by I96 in Howell)
The Quilter’s Garden Fenton, MI (only been once, had a good selection of kits. A large selection of fabric, didn’t have enough time to search fully)
Mabelena’s Ortonville, MI (super friendly staff, teach me something new every time I’m there! Repros and modern, great selection)
Guildcrafters Berkely, MI (an amazing and large selection of fabric, but I’ve not had a very good experience with the staff, and I’ve shopped there at least four or five times.)
Linda’s Country Quilt Shop Davidson, MI (one of the best selections of civil war and other repros, the two times I’ve been there I was strapped for time so couldn’t fully look around. =( Always our last shop on the shop hop.)
And here will be where I add all the shops you suggest!
