When a new business opens in a small rural town, it’s BIG news! Yellow Dog Quilt Company opened its doors in January 2020, offering a great selection of quilting fabrics, patterns, notions, classes & expert advice. With something for quilters of every experience level, owner Tammy Carpenter has built a customer base from surrounding counties who come for inspiration, supplies AND colorful fabrics! The shop features a great selection of Moda Grunge®, batiks, wide backings & wool appliqué supplies. Longarm quilting is available at Yellow Dog too, featuring hand-guided custom designs.
Regular customers often drive an hour or more to shop at Yellow Dog; local restaurants & other businesses benefit from the increased traffic. The storefront itself (built in 1900) has been completely renovated, with bright lighting, easy-access displays, re-purposed vintage fixtures and plenty of colorful new fabric. A nearby lake makes the shop a destination for weekend out-of-towners as well.
Yellow Dog’s mission is to make quilting a fun, creative outlet for everyone. Classes are held at the shop weekly, featuring a variety of projects & customized instruction. Whether it’s new sewers or those with decades of experience, everyone can find a project perfect for their interests & skills. Tammy hopes to make Yellow Dog Quilt Company an enduring part of this small town’s business community, with plenty of creativity, inspiration & LOTS of fabric!
