NEW BLOCK OF THE MONTH STARTING JANUARY 15, 2023!

RAINBOW SAMPLER

This BOM is a 10-month program from Kaye England for Wilmington Prints. The Sampler is bright & cheerful and is a great start for quilters with the basic knowledge of quilting. The quilt is 93” square and is mostly constructed with half square triangles, nine patches, and a few flying geese.

The program will cost $29 per month, which includes the fabric & instructions for that month’s blocks. Your kit will also include borders and binding.

This is a pickup at the Shop, or we can mail it to you for a small fee each month, anytime after the 15th of each month.

Call the Shop (815-397-5160) now, we have a limited number of kits available.

 

******************

ANNUAL MYSTERY QUILT RETURNS IN JANUARY!

Inspector “Clue-Sew” will be presenting “Sew It Goes” starting January 2, 2023. The program runs for 6 months. Each month you stop in the shop and pick up your “CLUE.”

The finished quilt will be 57” x 74” without borders. It takes 4 colors. As always, the “CLUES” are no charge, but we do ask that you purchase your fabric for this project at QGS. Of course, you get 15% off your purchase.

Call the Shop to sign up today!

WINTER WEATHER POLICY

As we approach the winter weather season, we are thinking about methods of deciding and communicating any closures. 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. And 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. We will change our answering machine message to reflect any closures. We will also use Facebook and our website to post any notices on weather related closures. 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!
