Welcome to Ma’s Website

We take great pleasure in showcasing our style and philosophy in the art of quilting. We carry books, patterns, notions, fabrics and we will always have your back (quilt backing that is).

Ma is a quilter for hire if you prefer to quilt by check! Or she will teach you how to quilt your own on the Longarm she has for rent in the Studio, located just a 1/2 block from the Main St. Quilt Shop.

If you are local to central Illinois, stop in soon. We’re just an hour from Springfield, Peoria, and Lincoln. If you should need to drive a distance to get here, you will find….we are worth the trip!

People Are Taking Notice!

Our friend at Moda’s Cutting Table blog wrote up a nice post about Ma’s shop, how Ma’s Got’a Notion got its start (and name!!), and what we’re up to these days. Thanks, folks!

We Got Your Back!

I love this quilt shop! It’s so warm and inviting inside and everyone was so friendly and helpful! I left with a sackful of fabric enough to keep me busy for the next few months! We’ll definitely be back!

The fabric, the samples, the variety of everything a quilter could possibly want or need and most of all the staff. Sue and her staff are up to date on the current trends and always, I repeat always willing to go that extra mile to make your visit exactly what you want it to be. I cannot imagine going anywhere else for all of my quilting needs.
