Quilted Threads in Henniker New Hampshire

Quilted Threads – 116 Main St., Henniker NH

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:

Australian fabric and a little Kaufman I thought would go with it.

Echino Train and others

Crabtastic by by Maude Asbury

Zipper fobs and variegated pearl cotton

You can never have too many books!

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!

Zakka Style Sew along starts today

In February when I was visiting family in NH, I stopped by one of my very favorite quilt stores, Quilted Threads in Henniker, and bought some fabric and the book “Zakka Style”  by Rashida Coleman-Hale.

The following day I saw that my niece had the book as well.  The two of us are so excited now about the sew along that is being hosted by Lindsey of LR Stitched and Amy of Skie.   It starts today and will continue through Monday September 10th with a new project  introduced each Monday. A different blogger will highlight a  project each week and share about it.  The projects are going to start at the beginning of the book and go through each of the 24 projects.  Fun, fun, fun!

Project 1 – Zig Zag Tote.        I’m starting today.  Are you?
