I got a chance to stop by Red Roxy Quilt Company when I was between appointments this week. The shop in in Decorah, Iowa- just a short ways from me.
The shop is right down town in Decorah. Sadly, they don’t have the best parking…but they do have great window appeal.
I love this quilt!
I have to remember to use dark backings more often.
They have lots of made up quilts on display.
I love the quilt on the left… The one on the right sure is fun if working with big prints.
There is lots of fabric selection.
They had a couple of clothing projects on display….this coat… (that I liked)
…and this cute skirt.
They have lots of featured books.
Here is their pattern display. There are LOTS.
Half of the store is dedicated to sewing machine sales. They are a Bernina dealer.
There are a new cute little displays….
This reminded me of the string pumpkin quilt that Bonnie Hunter made.
They have a nice selection of baby items.
Someone had sent me minke scraps once and I forwarded them on to Binky Patrol. Oh, I should have kept them and make a baby quilt like these…oh well.
They have lots of baby muslin too….
If you’re ever in the area, you might enjoy stopping by…You can find their website here.
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: 3
Selection of Goods: 4-for my taste, too much floor space in dedicated to machine sales.
Neat and Organized: 4-the pattern wall is hard to sort through other than that great
Cozy and Cute: 3
It’s worth a visit…
I know those machines take up lots of space, but the sales from those is probably what keeps the doors open. It does look like a wonderful quilt shop. Wish it was closer to me.
It is so nice to have these shops so close. I enjoy visiting the different shops. It will be fun to red your quilt shop tours.
I really like when you give us shop tours and I think this one will get put on my list for my next trip to corn country to see family. I would love to check out there minke display since its hard to find here in TN and I have to order cute stuff on line.
Hi Jo! Thanks so much for visiting our shop! Mom said she very much enjoyed visiting with you when you were in. When you make it up to beautiful downtown Decorah again make sure to check out our parking in back if the street parking is full. Take care and Happy Spring!
We like going there too Jo, the staff is helpful and they have a great selection of fabric for our area. Thanks for the tour:)
I don’t understand your comment about using dark backing more often. Do you mean using dark BACKGROUND? I guess I’m a DARK girl:) LOVE using black or dark navy as backgrounds in blocks. Think it makes the bright colors “pop” more. Working on a wholecloth right now, and I changed the base color from white to BLACK!!! Can’t wait to get stitching on it. All of the color will come from the thread:)
Love their selection of farm animal fabric! It’s so hard to find fun farm fabric for baby quilts. Will be making the drive the next time I need to make one.
I was going to suggest parking in the back but see Jessica covered that. But the last time I was there they had done some changes to the back entrance and it was hard to locate. Hopefully their sign is back up now.
I’ve made several of the self-binding baby blankets using that gauze and minkee fabric. Everyone loves them. And they are very fast and easy to make.
