We will be starting our Winter Hours on December 1st and continuing them through February 29th . During this period we will close at 4 pm Monday through Saturday.




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 due to the weather, 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!
