 Store Hours:






Effective at end of business Saturday March 21, 2020, we will suspend in store shopping. This action is being taken in compliance with Governor Pritzker’s “stay at home” order issued yesterday. Included in that announcement was the requirement for all non-essential businesses to close.

This is the plan effective through April 7.


We would love to help you in any way we can. If you need something, please call the Shop at 815-397-5160 and leave a message. We will be checking the answering machine several times each day and will get back to you on your question or request. We also plan to be in the Shop for limited hours doing some maintenance, cleaning, long arm services, plus receiving shipments. Hopefully we could mail you out something needed or provide it as a “drive through” on one of your necessary trips.


We are supportive of this aggressive order and pray that we see the slowing down the coronavirus’s spread a result. Please stay safe and well during this time. We appreciate all of you and pray for the best outcome for all of us.

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!
