Quilt Shop Tour: Krazy Kwiltz

On my trips back and for to Lacrosse I noticed that there was a quilt shop that I hadn’t noticed before in Mable, Minnesota.  The shop is Krazy Kwiltz and they have a Facebook page here.  I tried to stop one day but they didn’t open until 11:00am and when I was going through it was only 10:30.  On Friday I had afternoon appointments at the doctor so I stopped.  Hubby was along but he didn’t mind a drop..he took a nap.  I’m so blessed to have him.  He’s great with napping while I shop.

The shop shares space with an antique shop so that doesn’t leave a lot of room.  It’s small and isn’t stocked to the brim but there are good fabrics and beyond that, awesome prices to be found.

I chatted with the owner while I shopped.  Can you believe that she is not a quilter but a garment maker?  She does lots of alterations of prom dresses and the like through her shop.

She doesn’t have a lot yet but plans to slowly grow as finances grow.

Looking for doll clothes or home made gifts, she’s got them here.

There is a nice organized stocked place to grab DMC embroidery thread.  For me, I had going to the big stores if I can grab it quick.

Another row of fabric…the prices were awesome.  Most bolts were priced about $7 a yard except for the batiks.

There was a little section that was clearanced priced at $3.99 a yard.  My mind was screaming QUILT BACKINGS!!!

A local lady makes many of the samples that are for sale.

The owner told me the cutest story.  With the VERY first quilt she made, she donated to a benefit to raise money.  Her husband bought it back.  He didn’t want her first quilt to be passed along to anyone.  How sweet of a hubby is that??!!

I decided to start a new system when I do quilt shop tours.  I am going to do a 1-5 rating….five being the best-I’m going to be stingy with my fives.  This is just my impression on the day I visited and took pictures.
Warm and Friendly:  5-the owner was super sweet and very friendly
Selection of Goods:  3 but the prices were awesome
Neat and Organized:  5
Parking:  5
Cozy and Cute:  3

So are you wondering what I left the store with?

This….a cute little quarter yard cut of the pin fabric and backing fabric for two quilts.  How can I go wrong with $3.99 a yard fabric for quilt backs?

The floral is the backing for Star Struck and the tan leaf fabric is the backing for a Country Threads quilt I made.  It’s good to know I have the fabric to back them…now I just need time!

I will stop at this shop again…I love the friendly service and the prices!!

    Jo, I have a friend that is looking for digital camouflage cotton quilting fabric. If you find any, please send me an email with the store address/phone number. She makes surgical hats and had a special request. These small stores might have some on a bolt and she only needs about a yard and a half. It is not made anymore.

    I love to support growing shops, as that is the way I started mine all those years ago. Will have to stop in when and if I get down into that area. Thanks for telling us about it!
