What kinds of fabrics do you carry?
100% Cotton quilting fabrics (except if marked otherwise, like a few rayon batiks) Great for quilting, home decor, apparel, crafting and more. We only carry top manufacturers like Moda Fabrics, Hoffman Fabrics, Robert Kaufman, Widham Fabrics, Free Spirit Fabrics, Island Batik, Marcus Fabrics and more. We especially love Batik fabrics, and have approximately 800 on our website, and about 2,000 bolts in-store.
What is the minimum purchase for yardage?
We have a 1/2 yard minimum for yardage, and after that it's available in 1/4 yard increments. Use the drop-down quantity menu to adjust your yardage. To order 1/2 yard, set the first drop-down menu to "0" and the second drop-down menu to "1/2".
Where do you ship to?
We ship to the United States and Canada.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is based on your order total, with free U.S. shipping on orders $99 and up. For orders going to Canada, we set an $85 threshold because shipping costs to Canada can be unpredictable after a certain weight. If your order is over that and shipping to Canada, please choose the "Pickup In Store" option under shipping at checkout, and we'll get back to you with a quote on shipping.

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.
Do you also have a physical store?
Yes. We're located in Madison, Maine and have been in business since 1978. We have over 10,000 bolts of fabrics and a Sale Cottage with great bargains. If you're ever in the area, please stop in. We'd love to see you!
