The Back Door

Our shop has been around for 40 years, but we are constantly reinventing ourselves.  We carry several thousand bolts of fabric, specializing in reproductions, brights, and batiks.  We have over 1000 batiks!  We also carry 1930s reproductions, Wooly Flannels, regular and hand dyed wool.

 Beside fabric, we also carry lots of books, patterns for kid’s clothes, stitchery, English Paper Piecing, and purses.  Samples are everywhere in our almost 4000 square foot main building, and we have an Annex for classes and club meetings. 

Quilter's Garden is located in the heart of historic downtown Princeton. We carry a great selection of batiks, Civil War prints, novelties and traditional fabric groupings. We have become known for having the best selection of Shannon Cuddle fabric in the Midwest! Featured throughout the shop are many projects that are original designs exclusive to our shop. We always love to share demonstrations of our favorite techniques, so be prepared to learn something new and exciting.
