During this winter weather season, if weather conditions are dangerous or threatening, we will be deciding on Shop status, either closing early or closed for the individual day. We want everyone to be safe and not take any risk with travel. We will change our answering machine message to reflect any closures. We will also use Facebook and our website Home page to post any notices on weather related closures. So please call first or check Facebook or the website. Previously our policy was to follow what the Rockford School District did relative to winter weather closings, that is still a general guideline to follow.


Quilter’s General Store was founded in 1997 and is located in a stately 1875 farm house. The 2500 square foot farm house is decorated in a traditional country style, utilizing many primitive and rustic items that add to the charm of the shop. QGS features approximately 2000 bolts of fabric which include a selection of civil war reproduction fabrics, batiks, and hand dyed wools.
On the second floor you will find our children’s room with baby
and juvenile fabrics, and many brights to blend with the children's fabrics.
We have a large classroom in our lower level for our full slate of classes and clubs. Many quilt and wool samples are displayed and kitted to inspire you. The entire staff at QGS is available to assist you in fabric selection or on your particular project.

Quilter’s General Store is truly a quilter’s destination for supplies, fabric, and inspiration.
We can’t wait to see all of you down on the farm!
