The Cotton Shop






If you are a quilter or a seamstress of any kind, The Cotton Shop is the place for you. It's housed in a beautifully restored old mercantile building in our historic downtown. The quilts on the walls and draped across the furniture will make ya just wanna get started on those fall projects...Christmas is just around the corner you know (don't remind me)... There are tons of shelves packed to the gills with wonderful flannels, cottons, felts in a myriad of colors and patterns...and yes they do have patterns too. I hate to sew, but when I'm in their shop, I just want to start a project...quilting is too tedious for me, if it ain't done in a day, it ain't gitten done...so I don't sew! This is a very popular shop in town and the girls are busy quilting for others in the shop and directing shoppers to their needs.

The Cotton Shop is open Mon.-Fri. 9-5 Sat. 9-4 Phone 563-262-5709

I quilted for awhile, but I'm more like you, I want a project completed right away.

I used to do tapestry for awhiles, but outgrew that! I am no sewer! It is too "finger fiddly" for me! And threading needles ! AAhhhhhhhhhh!

(I go through knitting phases too! I love creating jumpers, winter berets and scarves! But this year I have been too busy writing for all that!)

But I still love gorgeous fabrics! I admire them and admire those who sew them together even more!

I love to do wool applique & punch needle -- not that I ever seem to have time to. Thanks for the info on the Cotton Shop. My sisters & I are planning a fast trip to Iowa in the middle of Sept. so this shop is going on my list. None of my sisters like to sew but they've learned to humor me or I whine. Jan
