I first met the owner, Pat, when I wandered into the shop with my mother-in-law while Christmas shopping. What a delightful find. Everyone in the store is friendly and helpful and truly enjoys working at the shop and talking quilting with their customers. I have taken classes at the Heartland Quilt shop and each time I have learned something new just in the sharing and chatting with the fellow people taking classes and the instructors. There are always plenty of instructors to help. They are great at fixing my mistakes! The qults in the shop are inspirations and I often find myself buying material to someday make a quilt they have displayed. I love their $1 fat quarter bin! I keep coming back and coming back to this lovely shop.
