Our Opportunity to Give Back!

We are honoring the memory & legacy of a dear family friend, Dr. Mandy Harris. Mandy was a very special doctor at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis who recently passed away at the young age of 41. She was a pediatric neurologist who worked with very special needs babies in the hospital NICU. A group has formed to make a goal of 700 Jelly Buddies! These are crocheted items that have been successfully used in the NICU, helping to sooth babies and thus enhance their recovery. So we are looking to our wonderful community of Quilters! Do any of you crochet too? We need Crochet’ers to help make a few Jelly Buddies and/or anyone who might like to donate some yarn that could be used to make them. Click here for the pattern and a list of approved yarns to make these cute little creatures. Jelly Buddies and yarn can be dropped off at QGS and we will send them on to Riley Children’s Hospital! Please note yarn must be on the approved yarn list, these will be going to very special babies and the type of yarn must be controlled.

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!
