As we start to get into the Holiday spirit & with this early cold spell, we are reminded of those in need. For this year’s Annual Holiday Giving Project, we have learned of a wonderful, generous family that is working hard to care for many. Miss Carly’s is an organization that has opened their home in the heart of our city to those in need in order to connect with people personally and build relationships. No forms. No alienation. They serve those who have fallen between the cracks and burned all their bridges. They provide daily meals and unconditional love with a side of sass!

Learn more about Miss Carly’s mission by visiting her Facebook Page Miss Carly’s or her website

Quilter’s General Store will be donating 10% of our total sales from Black Friday week, November 25 through 30 to Miss Carly’s mission. Please stop by and help us help Miss Carly and her amazing work.


Additionally, donations will be collected through December 15th. Miss Carly has identified the following items as needed: blankets, sweatshirts, hats & gloves, hand warmers, socks, coloring books for adults & children, and writing journals (for people going into drug treatment).

For your donation of these items to this project you will receive a Special Coupon from QGS.



Saturday December 14

1 pm to 3 pm

Join us for a visit with Monique Jacobs of Open Gate Quilts. She will be here to show her new line of Batiks called Costal Getaway. This is her second collection of batiks with a seaside theme for Maywood Studio. Schools of fish, sailboats, and beachy plant motifs are colored in rich violets, deep blues, and sea greens reminiscent of the colors inside an abalone shell. All fabrics are complimentary to her first line Coastal Chic. Click here to see a preview of this beautiful line.

Monique will also be giving us a sneak peek of another new line called Amour, also with Maywood, that will be coming out in the Spring. This beautiful floral and geometric collection of purples, greens, and greys sparkles with elegance. The line includes textured blenders, a French script print, and a beautiful border stripe.

We are planning to offer a Block of the Month designed by Monique for this fabric. Click here to see a preview of this beautiful line.

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 205 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.


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.
