Welcome to Quilts & Other Notions!

Hello friends,

I have some bad news...and some good news!

I have always been a firm believer in transparency. Because, well, you — my customers-turned-friends — deserve it. And as always, I will share as much as I am able, as so many things are still up in the air at the moment. But, I wanted you to hear the news "straight from the horse's mouth," so to speak. 


It is with deep sadness that I share this with you, but, Quilts & Other Notions will be closing its doors. 

The news of this possibility has been circling for some time. At the time, we had received numerous inquiries about purchasing our business, and we were certain we would be able to sell our store, as we worked diligently to provide the necessary information to our prospective buyers. However, a sale never came to fruition.

This endeavor worked a whole lot better under the direct benevolence of my former husband. I really thought I had done my due diligence when investigating owning my own business; However, when planning this venture, I had never entertained the idea of a divorce, or becoming a single-income household. So, maybe had this all happened a handful of years down the road, I'd be in a better position to ride the wave. 

So, what does this all mean? It means that nearly 2,000 bolts of fabric, books, and notions need new homes. With that being said, everything is 60% off (minimum 1 yard cuts) until there's nothing left or until we sell our building. Additionally, if you are interested in purchasing bulk fabric, shelving, or fixtures for your own sewing studio or retail space, feel free to reach out to me (641) 782-8874 or sarah@quiltsandnotions.com. For building inquiries, please contact Dino Gromoutis at Creston Realty, (641) 278-1484 or dino@crestonrealtyllc.com.

For machine sales and repairs, contact Joyce Franklin at Pieceworks Quilt Shop in Winterset, (515) 493-1121.

Thank you for your support and friendship over the past two years. 

With gratitude,
