When you first step through the country screen door, you at once know: A quilter’s paradise awaits you.
No matter what draws your interest or which textile is you choice of medium – be it wool, flannel, homespuns, 1800’s criteria or 1920/30’s flower sack reproduction prints – you will find it all at Ma’s.
While wide-backings are our draw, with over 900 bolts or fat-back packs of wide-backs in-stock at any given time, we are known for a number of other quilters “must haves” too. Ma’s carries hundreds of wool pieces in varied sizes, colors, and textures of 100% pre-felted wool.
We also carry a variety of threads. We have Valdani threads in 8 and 12 weights and many colors, as well as Pearl Cotton of varied weights in a number of other brands. If you like variegated floss, we have a very nice selection, including every color that DMC makes.
We also have needles, hoops, and glues for all of your crafting needs. Looking for fun wool patterns or books? We have those, too.
With over 4500 bolts of flannels, homespuns, and 100% cottons on the bolt, we pride ourselves on how it is all sectioned into colors, criterias, and groupings to enhance your fabric shopping pleasure.
We have a huge selection of Quilters Whites and Off-Whites. As for shirtings, there has never been a shirting Ma has seen that she didn’t just have to stock on her shelves here at the shop…she is shirting crazy!
We’ve got Tone-on-Tones, tons of them with every color of the rainbow, in Crackles, Stripes, Dots, Red and White, Black and White, Patriotic Prints, Stars, Solids, and more!
If you are into pre-Civil War, Civil War, and post-Civil War prints, we are your go-to shop!
And nothing is as fresh and clean looking as our corner shelving units just packed with feed sack reproduction prints.
When you push open the front door, our huge selection of bolts of Flannels and Home-spuns will reach off the shelving and wrap you in warmth. Once you piece with home-spuns and/or flannels, you will only want to cuddle under a flannel quilt. You feel that you are in the ultimate of comfort…even cashmere could not dare to cuddle you better!
Pre-stamped embroidery blocks line one wall. On the opposing wall, you will find about any Notion, that you take a “notion” you need, in your arsenal of tools and gadgets!
Need a ruler? We have the ruler that you will need for about any block you can dream up to cut out.
We’ve got sewing machine needles and hand sewing needles in oodles of sizes and brands. Sewing machine thread, hand sewing thread, hand quilting thread, and even Longarm thread…Ma carries a number of brands.
The shop décor will carry you back to a time with the feel of shopping a early 1900’s mercantile. You’ll hear the laughter and silly stories of Ma’s friendly staff swapped around the cutting table and the checkout, where hand-written receipts are still in vogue and your change will be counted back to you, one coin and greenback at a time!
If you look around, you will find the original tin ceilings, brick walls, and floors that feet have trod for well over 100 years.
We love to make samples here at Ma’s. If we have a sample made up, then you know that we know that the pattern we are selling you has been tested. If we have kitted it, you can be assured that you will have ample fabric in the kit to piece that top. So look up and all around and you will find beautiful samples made up for your viewing pleasure!
We keep it “real” here at Ma’s, because we really do want you as our customer. We will always consider your needs first, and that is our first and last order of business each day!
