Welcome to Lil' Country Shoppe - My (our) quilt shop was established on September 30, 2002 and is owned by Doris Wooleyhan. I thought what was a great hobby, we now have a staff of 5 along with numerous teachers making it into one great quilt shop. Yes I will gladly tell you it is my staff that makes the shop what it is today. I think all of them refer to it as their shop and it is!! The shop was opened in the living room of my house, then I expanded into a bedroom -- just needed more space for fabric, then in 2003 I moved it to a shopping center. Wow did that stash grow. The shopping center was home for 5 1/2 years before I bought an old farmhouse and built a great addition. Moving to our new home finally happened in March 2009 which meant more space, more fabric; we all understand that one.
The shop was mainly a country shop starting with 700 bolts of warm colors and even back in 2002 we had lots of wool for hooking and penny rugs. Today the shop has expanded to over 3000 bolts of great cottons along with a nice selection of hand dyed wools. The warmer colors are my first love but I have included a several hundred bolts of batiks. My fabric stash is from lots of different designers which include Patrick Lose, Jo Morton, Paula Barnes, Nancy Gere, Kansas Trouble Quilters, Amy Butler plus lots of blenders (Fusions, marbles, tone on tones, etc.) I strive to keep all the lastest notions, books, and patterns in stock. To give the shop that warm homey feeling we use antiques, flea market finds, and some reproductions for displays. We've all heard it over and over "WOW, I want to live here!" and "This is what a quilt shop should look like!". What really makes our quilt shop one of the best is all of you.
Our classroom allows us to host special events which include PMS Day (Potluck Monday Sewers), Lil' This - Lil' That (Saturday Demo featuring small projects), two hand stitching groups, Witches Day Out, Elves Wanted plus classes. All of our clubs are at no charge.

One quick note - Some GPS's take you past the shop about 1/4 mile down the road. Just look for the open flag and you know you have found us.
