Fabric and More at A Little Country CharacterShelly at A Little Country CharacterAny quilter would feel right at home among the racks and racks of beautiful fabrics.

We were warmly welcomed by Shelly, the shop’s owner. As she walked with us through the rows of fabric, she gave a particularly lovely bolt a little pat here, tucked a stray corner back in place there, paused to point out a favorite quilt top or pattern in this corner, or a clever plaque in that one. Her fondness for fabric and craving for quilting is as obviously on display as the shop’s merchandise. And her smile expresses perfectly the essential character of A Little Country Character. This is a comfortable place where quilters, fabric, and ideas meet.
