The Dash will be 16 days long to give you additional time to get to all shops. When you stop in with your Dash Bag and Passport you will receive 15% off your entire purchase, a coupon to use at a later date, and when you bring your bag in on the 5th Saturdays of a month (there are 3 additional days in 2021), you will receive the 15% discount on your entire purchase again!


This is the 6th year of the GSD and we are changing it up a bit! Instead of purchasing a new bag with your Passport, you can reuse one of the previous 5 bags. Just bring in your previous bag to get your free Passport. If you do not have a previous bag, you can purchase it from a participating Shop for $10 and receive your Passport.

Passport (and bag) availability begins Saturday November 28.

Here is a list of participating Shops:




During this winter weather season, if weather conditions are dangerous or threatening, we will be deciding on Shop status, either closing early or closed for the individual day. 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 Home page to post any notices on weather related closures. So please call first or check Facebook or the website.


QGS continues to follow & comply with current State & Local determined guidelines regarding operation.We have discussed our responsibilities as a member of the business community as well as our concern for our customers, our employees, our families, and friends. We have established a protocol that we will follow, at least for the time being, as we learn and experience what our new normal will be.

We will adjust as we go!




Entry - We will have hand sanitizer available in our shop for your use. It is placed just inside our door. Please use it as you enter and leave.
Also, at this time, there will be no public restrooms available.


Masks - Each customer will be asked to wear a mask to provide an additional measure of safety for all. Our staff will also be wearing masks.


Social Distancing – In accordance with the State guidelines a limit of 5 customers in the Shop at any one time. Generally, this will not be a problem but understand that you may be asked to wait if the Shop is full. We support and expect customers to maintain the recommended 6-foot distance from other customers and staff.


Curbside – We will continue our current curbside pickup process and/or shipment for those of you who are more comfortable with this. Orders can continue to be placed via phone call, email, etc., and will processed in a timely manner.


Classes - We will not restart our class schedules until February 2021. We have worked at creating a properly social distanced arrangement of our classroom but are delaying start of classes as we settle into this new operating situation.

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!
