Welcome to The Fabric Garden!

Maine's oldest quilt shop!  Since 1978, The Fabric Garden in Madison, Maine has been a source of inspiration for quilters and sewists.  Specializing in stunning batiks, our inventory of over 10,000 bolts of quilting cotton fabrics provides endless creative options for a wide variety of sewing or quilting projects. To increase the sewing capacity and enjoyment of our customers, we also carry over 25 models of high quality sewing, embroidery and longarm quilting machines from Janome, Necchi and Artistic, as well as a great selection of patterns, books, kits, notions, tools, and rulers.   In recent years, we've outgrown our Sale Department, so we added a cute Sale Cottage right next door, filled with discounted fabrics, notions books, quilting tools and so much more.  Don't miss it!

We are a friendly bunch of people who genuinely love our customers and strive to provide them with a relaxing, supportive environment where they can nurture their creative spirit, improve their skills, and socialize with fellow stitchers who share common interests and hobbies.  We're dedicated to meeting the needs of sewing enthusiasts of all skill levels through unbeatable product quality and selection, expert product knowledge, thorough machine training, and exceptional service.

I heard a rumor that you're closing

We're not closing!!   There's a store in the next state that opened about 14 years ago with the same name as ours, and they are closing, so there's been some confusion.  We're not closing - in fact, we're looking forward to celebrating our 40th anniversary this year! 

If the weather is bad here in Maine, how do I know if you're open?

Winter in Maine is very unpredictable, and we are forced occasionally to close for the safety of ourselves and our employees.   If we do close for weather, we post that information at the top of our website home page (this page), and also on our Facebook page.
