FARM FEST 2018!
July 20 & 21, 2018
We are very excited about changing up the Farm Fest format this year! We will be having a single selection for this year’s event. We are thrilled to have well known designer Doug Leko from Antler Quilt Design from Minnesota. Doug will be teaching an 8 hour class on Friday July 20. The pattern is “French Twist” from his new book “Stashtastic”, which will be included if the Farm Fest fee. The quilt is 68” x 85”. The Saturday session will be an open sew where you can continue working on “French Twist” or any other project of your choice.
Here is our Shop Sample.
We have samples make up of different colorways too: red, green, and scrappy! Stop in to see all of them!
Kits are available.
A little bit about Doug:
He founded Antler Quilt Design in 2008 when he was just 14 years old. He started quilting at the age of 6 and working in his Mother’s quilt shop over the years has helped him develop his skills and refine his art. Doug takes a distinctive approach to his quilting designs. He enjoys incorporating secondary design elements into his quilt pattern, and is absolutely passionate about color.
Doug has released over 60 individual patterns as well as several books. Many of you may be familiar with his work associated with the Holly Taylor fabric lines out at Holiday time the last couple of years.

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!
