All About Quilts dedicates itself to providing service for all aspects of quilt making. The shop, which has been in business for more than 31 years, offers the finest cotton fabrics, top quality notions and the latest books and patterns. Each member of the staff has considerable quilt making experience. Consequently, we can help a customer choose the right fabric and pattern for a first quilt or help the more experienced quilter who has a technique question. We offer classes for all levels and interests.
Our shop features over 1000 bolts of high quality fabrics and new shipments arrive every few days. We are proud that our many samples inspire quilters to start a new project whether it is a large quilt, a tablerunner or placemats to give as a gift, a designer bag or a unique pillowcase. Our longarm quilting business enjoys a respected reputation in the area.
