Twenty years ago, seeing that quilters were a growing population, two shelves of quilting fabrics were added to the Anderson Fabrics Outlet Store. Anderson Fabrics had already established a storefront for selling remnants, fabric bolts and remakes from the workroom. Custom orders of window treatments, cushions and more were also available. Adding quilting fabric was the natural next step in establishing a retail store in Blackduck, MN.
“I feel like I’m in heaven”
As the need for a larger selection of quilting fabric in Blackduck and the surrounding area grew, the availability for more selections of fabrics became apparent. When additional space was available, it was decided to add the “Quilt Room”. The Quilt Room is a place where there is a wide selection of fabrics, patterns, notions, wools and quilting supplies. We also offer kits and have many samples displayed of how quilting fabric can be creatively used.
In 2012, a quilting machine to do custom quilting on site was added to the retail store. Customers can bring their quilts in to be quilted and can pick from hundreds of quilting patterns.
Classes are offered regularly, for quilters from beginners to the most experienced quilters. We teach classes that are helpful in learning new patterns and techniques. We also have demonstrations of how to use the latest quilting supplies. There is nothing like hearing the chatter and laughter of people learning something new together.
The Anderson Fabrics Outlet Store still has a large selection of decorating fabrics, remakes and we continue to do custom ordering to meet your home decorating needs. It’s amazing what ideas our customers have come up with to use decorating fabrics such as bags, costumes, pillows and so much more!
Customers often say, “I feel like I’m in heaven,” when visiting our store! We have an ever-changing inventory that offers the latest in fabrics, patterns and notions. We pride ourselves in being a helpful and friendly staff when you stop by to visit! The store has a monthly newsletter to keep our customers informed about what’s new in the store and what’s on the calendar. Customers have made Anderson Fabrics their “go to” quilt store and come from far away to see our vast selection of everything a quilter needs.
