Special Open House 1 to 4 pm


Did you realize that Quilter’s General Store has been here for you for 20 years now!!!!!

 Yes in 1997 Jan Ragaller opened this great Shop for all of us to enjoy and grow in our Quilting journey. So this year to mark the 20th year of operation we plan on celebrating with a few special events and activities.

 Starting on March 4th we kick it off with an Open House from 1 to 4 pm. We have invited past Shop owners and Staff members to join us at the Open House for an afternoon of reminiscing and seeing Quilters from the past and present! Special treats and other surprises!  So please save the date and plan to join us for this special Open House.

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!
