High Country Quilts is a different kind of quilt shop.
We carry a very limited number of quality, 100% cotton fabrics, unusual patterns and kits, a wide selection of threads for piecing, machine embroidery, and mixed thread arts, quilt batting and a variety of quilting and sewing notions. They are all best in category products that will be available through the years - those that you can count on getting more of if need be. And we are adding handcrafted quilts and gifts.
Our pricing structure is designed to offer quality products at the best price, so that you can experience the difference between "shop small" quilt shops and catalogs or the big box stores. For that reason, and the agreements in place with suppliers, you won't see prices posted anywhere except at the shop.The shop is located in the mountains of southern Appalachia. We're on High Country Road, Dry Hill, Butler, TN, off US-321 very close to the TN / NC state line. We are open, Monday through Saturday, 8am to 6pm, and Sunday, 1pm to 4pm - think "by appointment". Call before you come, in case life has gotten in the way. Info is on the contact us page.
Classes are offered at the shop on request, you need only one or two for a class, or you can check out Mountain Quilt Camp for our scheduled Quilt Retreats at the Banner Elk, NC retreat center.
If you plan to stop, please call. Check the Directions link for driving directions. You can also locate us on Google map as High Country Quilts. We strongly suggest you use them as GPS and other internet-based mapping systems and are notoriously inaccurate in the mountains. When you call, we'll confirm a time, help you with the questions about our location, give you a road conditions report, and stash our super-friendly, giant-breed Newfoundlands in the house.
See you soon!
P.S. We are currently at 11 Newfs, Bailey and Finnegan who own the place, and 9 fosters. You can find out more about the SENC foster program (and make a donation) at http://www.sencrescue.org
