See more details under Upcoming Events tab!



For the months of January and February 2019 our business hours will be changed to closing every day Monday through Saturday at 4 pm. We will return to the 5 pm closing in March. Of course if you need to stop in and find that it will be after 4, please give us a call and we can arrange to wait for you.




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, 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.

The GREAT STASH DASH 2019 is coming!

January, 18-27 2019


Passports are on sale now! Purchase your passport for $15 and you’ll receive a high quality, beautiful reusable bag, big enough to haul your stash (note: bag quantity limited). We are out of the Passports and Bags but we will be happy to assist you in finding a nearby Shop that still has them.

  During the 10 day long dash (which includes two weekends), you can visit all 14 shops getting your Great Stash Dash passport stamped and saving 15% off your entire purchase (some restrictions may apply). There are bonus days throughout 2019 when you can use your GSD bag to repeat the special discounts.

On Four Saturdays in 2019, just bring your tote bag to any (or all) of the 14 participating shops and you’ll save 15% all over again!

It’s that easy, it’s that fun, you get a great bag AND you save four more times throughout 2019!

Here are the FOUR 15% Saving Saturdays!

March 30, June 29, August 31, & November 30

Bonus Coupon: You will receive one bonus coupon from each shop you visit during the January Dash. This coupon is good for one 15% discount purchase at that shop on any day during 2019. Ask for your coupon when you have your passport stamped




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!
