As we start to get into the Holiday spirit & with this early cold spell, we are reminded of those in need. For this year’s Annual Holiday Giving Project, we have learned of a wonderful, generous family that is working hard to care for many. Miss Carly’s is an organization that has opened their home in the heart of our city to those in need in order to connect with people personally and build relationships. No forms. No alienation. They serve those who have fallen between the cracks and burned all their bridges. They provide daily meals and unconditional love with a side of sass!

Learn more about Miss Carly’s mission by visiting her Facebook Page Miss Carly’s or her website

Quilter’s General Store will be donating 10% of our total sales from Black Friday week, November 25 through 30 to Miss Carly’s mission. Please stop by and help us help Miss Carly and her amazing work.


Additionally, donations will be collected through December 15th. Miss Carly has identified the following items as needed: blankets, sweatshirts, hats & gloves, hand warmers, socks, coloring books for adults & children, and writing journals (for people going into drug treatment).

For your donation of these items to this project you will receive a Special Coupon from QGS.



Saturday December 14

1 pm to 3 pm

Join us for a visit with Monique Jacobs of Open Gate Quilts. She will be here to show her new line of Batiks called Costal Getaway. Monique will also be giving us a sneak peek of another new line called Amour, also with Maywood, that will be coming out in the Spring and it will have a Block of the Month available that we will be offering.


Just a heads up on the upcoming operating hours and Shop Closures

Shop Closures for the upcoming months:

Saturday December 7

Christmas Holiday December 23, 24, & 25

Just because we are expecting to see some winter weather this afternoon & evening, we thought we would remind you of our Winter Weather Policy.

If the weather is threatening (warnings, advisories, etc.) it is always best to call the Shop (815-397-5160) first to make sure we are open. On Monday through Friday, if the Rockford School District has closed the schools, we will most likely be closed too. Bad weather could also result in an early closure of the Shop. We want everyone to be safe and not take any risk with travel.

So please call first.




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!
