Cotton-By-Post Quilt Shoppe Loves You!
From Our Editors
Cotton-By-Post Quilt Shoppe has grown steadily since 1994, when it began as a mail-order service. Two years later, the owners opened a 700-square-foot shop, and seven years after that, the overflowing store took over an old bank, where the staff quickly filled the more-than-5,000-square-foot space with thousands of bolts of fabric, books, and patterns. Today, they've added on a shop to sell Bernina and Pfaff sewing machines, as well as a second Cotton-By-Post location next door.
Within a spacious classroom, instructors lead classes and workshops that range from free Friday-night Sit and Knit sessions to lessons in quilt-making techniques. Additional quilting and knitting events show even advanced crafters new tricks if they haven't already been inspired by the shop's treasure trove of yarns, knitting magazines, and batik fabrics. Staying true to their roots, the staff are also able to ship items worldwide or launch knitting kits to bored astronauts.
