Frequently Asked Questions
Are there fabric stores close by?

Please let us know if we've overlooked any. Listed alphabetically:
Opened in 1968 and still owned by the LaValley family, the shop is only a few blocks from downtown Penacook. They're also an award-winning Janome sewing machine dealer, widely involved in the sewing industry across New England, and a longtime supporter of makers and quilters. They carry an assortment of threads and notions in addition to fabrics.
Located in Concord, and also family-owned, here's a special independent quilt store with a wonderful selection of quilting fabrics and supplies. Classes and retreats offered as well. Be sure to tap into their years of quilting expertise!
On Manchester Street in Concord, Paradise Quilting is much more than a fabric and notion shop. See their website for the many services they offer and be prepared to spend some time browsing the shelves! In addition to lots of fabric, they have a great collection of rulers and out-of-the ordinary sewing tools.
A large shop in Henniker, with a wide variety of traditional and modern fabrics, quilting books and supplies, they are also a Bernina dealer. Classes have been offered in the past and we hope they'll continue when it's safe to gather again. Check their website for business hours.
