About Us


Hello there! My name is Chris, owner of The Hometown Quilter. Since 2007, we've been providing a wide variety of premium quilting fabrics, patterns, quilt kits, and notions to meet the creative needs of sewing and quilting enthusiasts.

After many years of working in the banking industry, I was ready to close the door on that career and open a new door to a more creative business. But it wasn't until after I started quilting in 2000, that I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Having always loved the Holidays, I decided to open an online quilt store specializing in seasonal fabrics.

The beauty of living in Michigan is enjoying the wonders of all four seasons. Personally, fall and winter are my favorites. By the time Halloween rolls around, the warm, cozy feelings of the Holidays are already upon us and it's time to get to work on Thanksgiving and Christmas projects. But I don't think we should be limited to crafting with what's available simply because the materials we need are out of season. That's why my goal is to carry holiday and seasonal fabrics year round, along with other gorgeous designer fabrics and precuts too!

Away from The Hometown Quilter,  I enjoy spending time with my husband, dogs, and cat. Life doesn't get much better than spending a lazy Saturday quilting, while the Michigan Wolverines football game plays on TV (Go Blue!) and the crock pot fixes dinner for me.

When I'm working in the shop, I'm committed to providing exceptional customer service, prompt order processing, and fast shipping. If you don't see the item you're looking for, just contact me and we'll go out of our way to find it for you. Our website atmosphere reflects our business name, with a friendly, down home feel. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a refreshing beverage while you browse our sensational fabric selection...where holidays are always in season, and the seasons are always in style!
