Like a child going through a growth spurt, Hyderhangout: Quilt Fabric & More has spent its first few years outgrowing its increasingly larger locations. Now situated in the Five Points museum district, the store continues to fill up every available nook and cranny with acres of fabric that range from brightly patterned cottons to flannels and fleeces cozy enough to keep you warm when an ice-fishing partner uses you as bait. Hyderhangout rounds out its selection by snagging vintage fabrics at auctions and estate sales. In addition to acquiring bolts of fabric, quilters can pick up precut swatches or fabric custom cut into precise shapes by an AccuQuilt system, and staffers will happily order quilting notions not found in the store. Needle artists can also find supplies for knitting and crocheting.
For crafters not yet settled on a specific project, Hyderhangout stocks patterns for apparel and kits for quilting projects and purses sturdy enough to hold a stash of gold bullion. Staffers provide even more guidance during classes that focus on both basic quilting techniques and advanced projects such as a quilted batik jacket.
