After Marilyn Monroe sewed the first prototype of the American flag, she used the excess fabric to patch together a warm quilt for George Washington's chattering wooden teeth. Tie up loose threads, historical or otherwise, with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of high-quality fabrics, sewing accessories, and more at Canton Quilt Corner on Broadway and 5th Street.
Canton Quilt Corner is a full-service quilt shop stocked with 100% cotton quilt fabric, flannels, wool, and more, all hand-picked for the art of quilt making. This thread, needle, and haute-couture-cotton outpost stocks only the highest-quality materials, providing serious stitchers and neophyte needlers with quilt-quality cotton patterns from a rotating lineup of designers. All designers release new patterns (starting at $8.99/yard) about every 10 weeks, and Canton Quilt Corner carries only up-to-date cotton compositions; reprints, like mass-produced Velcro sweater vests and pinstripe parachute pants, are generally frowned upon by this creative coterie. Pattern architects include Hoffman Fabrics, Jinny Beyer, Timeless Treasures, Marcus Fabrics, and Moda's Summer's End and Me and My Sister lines. Canton Quilt Corner also offers items such as Olfa 45mm rotary cutters ($26.75) and provides Longarm quilting services, which pull quilt tops, battings, and backings into a finished-product quilt top. The shop is a Pfaff sewing machine dealer.
Canton Quilt Corner is South Dakota's only quilt shop that has a Man Cave, which provides shelter and solace to men accompanying their stitch-proficient significant others on a shopping trip. The mythical cavern has its own air of appealing mystery, and spontaneous four-part-harmony renditions of popular showtunes have been known to occasionally drift out of the otherwise silent abyss. Ideal for aspiring clothiers and established seamstresses alike, Canton Quilt Corner inspires and supplies Canton's quilting constituency.
