Country Threads Quilt Shop is Closing!

We’re retiring. Our last day of business will be October 31, 2014.  We will close the chicken coop and the online shop on that date.

For over 30 years, Country Threads has been one of the leading quilts shop in Iowa located in a renovated chicken coop and one of Iowa’s premier shopping destinations.  Country Threads has been designing custom quilt patterns since 1983 and has seen many trends in quilting come and go.  Our website is an avenue to share the country life, pets, gardens, quilt camps and retreats along with the newest quilt patterns, quilting fabric kits and news from the farm.

Our quilt shop in Iowa has grown over the years to include all the quilting supplies needed to make a quilt as well as patterns for original country quilts by Connie and Mary, two of Iowa’s longtime quilt designers.  If you can’t visit Country Threads to experience our quilting services and products in person, please shop online to get the newest quilt patterns, quilting fabric kits and punch needle projects. Our best selling book, Rugs From Rags, gives complete instructions for rug weaving using fabric strips.

The e-commerce function on our shopping cart is disabled so you can still view our products but you’ll have to call us to place an order.  641-923-3893.

Country Threads is not just a quilt shop in Iowa, we were featured on the cover of the first Quilt Sampler magazine, published by Meredith Corporation, who named Country Threads one of the top ten quilt shops in the nation.

Mary and Connie
Country Threads – the best quilt shop in Iowa thanks all of our loyal customers for your support over the years.
