On Wednesday, My friend Jean Marie took me to a quilt shop that was recommended to us by her husband's aunt who is a quilter. The Hingeley Road Quilt Shop, located in Floodwood, Minnesota, has Minnesota Exclusive Fabric designs, made by Hoffman Batik Fabrics. They have fabric that has logging, lake Superior, Minnesota Black Bear, Walleye designs made exclusively for the this quilt shop only.
The store was neat and clean and has a huge selection of fabrics with over 6,000 bolts. They have a large selection of beautiful batiks. A huge variate of Moda precut fabrics with the several pattern books that give great ideas on how to use them. They also have a nice selection of kits, that have everything everything except the backing. Check all of it out on the Minnesota Charms webpage.
The quilt shop has great customer service. Both of the lady's working in the shop were very friendly and ready to help. I needed to figure out how much fabric in needed for the 3 kits I bought, they helped figured out the yardage and cut the material. The owner, is also very friendly with customers asking questions and showing them different ways to use layer cakes and charms.
I highly recommend that you check out the Hingeley Road Quilt Shop, if you are in the Duluth, Minnesota area or if not make sure you check out their website, which has just about everything you can find in the store. I will surely be going back to them when I visit again.
