I live in Washington DC but my favorite quilt shop is Quilted Threads in Henniker NH. Whenever I visit family in the area, I shop here. It is about a 20 minute drive from Interstate 93. Henniker, NH has to be the quaintest New England town ever. I could have taken pictures of a hundred old farm houses/barns close to this shop. (Maybe next time I will!)
Who would guess that you would find such amazing fabric in this little town? When you enter the store you are immediately greeted with a whole room of Japanese fabrics. I was told yesterday that they believe they have the largest selection in the US. It was hard not to drool, but I have to admit that the prices keep me from stashing too much of this beautiful fabric. The store was featured in this Spring/Summer 2011 Quilt Sampler magazine.
They pretty much have it all: batiks (although somewhat limited), novelty/kids prints, civil war prints, silks and linens, modern, Australian, Japanese, felted woolens, etc..
Here is a sampling of what I did buy:
They do have an online store. I was also told that they are about to become a Bernina dealership. If you are ever in the area (or within 100 miles), you do NOT want to miss this store!
