Quiltessentials is a full service quilt and yarn shop. Our specialty is contemporary quilting fabrics, bright colors and large funky prints. We carry lots of batiks, polka dots, stripes, landscapes, Australian, Asian and “modern” fabrics. For your convenience, we cut and package our own pre-cut fabric packs, 5” charms, 10” squares and 2 1/2” strips (40 per package). We currently offer these in over a dozen different colorways. Custom made quilt kits are also available in addition to the pre-cut fabrics for those who prefer to do their own cutting. Supporting our fabric selection is a wide array of quilting notions, books and patterns.
In addition to quilting, Quiltessentials is a full services yarn shop. We carry a large assortment of hand knitting yarns in various weights and fiber content. Our yarns come from Maine companies, along with commercial yarns. One of our specialties is sock yarns in both commercial and local yarns. Our large needle selection includes Brittany, KA, Hiya Hiya, Cubics, Addi Turbos and Lantern Moon.
Our reputation is built from great customer service, encouragement, ideas and cheerful advice. We aim to assist you with all your project needs. Come in and get the help you’ve always wanted. Classes are offered on site for beginner and experienced crafters. There are also special events for various causes throughout the year. Quiltessentials is more than a full service quilt and yarn shop; It’s a place to brainstorm ideas with experienced crafters and make new friends.
