Welcome

The Olde World Quilt Shoppe opened in April of 2008. In the fall of 2009, we were awarded a top ten quilt shop award by Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler Magazine. Our unique shoppe is known for its warm, inviting interior and gorgeous fabric selection. We are a full service quilt shoppe carrying books, patterns and approximately 3500 bolts of fabric from leading manufacturers such as Moda, Andover, Diamond Textiles, Marcus Brothers, Maywood Studios and many more. We have a large selection of civil war reproduction, flannel, brushed cotton and woven fabrics, as well as a diverse selection of hand dyed wools.
