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.
Everywhere the eye can see, there’s an attractive assortment of lovely fabrics.
I thought these quick quilt pattern cards were interesting.
And I loved this sampler quilt. The red/green version is gorgeous, but I think I’d like to make it in blue, too. At A Little Country Character, the choice is yours.
Tucked in a back room, there’s a much used long-arm machine.
And, of course, A Little Country Character is a Bernina dealer, so you’ll find a great selection of machines, attachments, and accessories available, plus helpful instruction on how to get the most from your new machine. They also offer repair services.
Shelly told us how A Little Country Character came to be.
And she reminisced about her favorite quilt, which hangs in the stairwell at A Little Country Character.
Right now, A Little Country Character has a large stock of cuddly minky fabrics and can show you how to make a luxuriously soft bound blanket. Coming soon, Simple Whatnots, an exciting new club from Kim Diehl and Henry Glass fabrics. A fun sewing series for kids is also in the works at A Little Country Character.
