High Country Quilts

A unique Quilt Shop in the mountains of northeast Tennessee



We are a specialty shop featuring unique 100% quality cotton fabrics for quilting, unusual patterns and kits, and a wide selection of threads for piecing, quilting, machine embroidery, and mixed thread arts.  We try to carry best-in-class products, made in America if possible.

All items are significantly discounted, these discounts are available in the shop only, and prices will not be quoted over the phone.  So come visit.

And we have a Shop Local corner!  The best from local Farmer's Markets available here at market prices.   Shop Local products include custom, hand painted quilt blocks from Clara Gildea; soaps and bath bombs from Nature Heals Your Soul; honey from Blue Ridge Apiaries; and coming soon syrups and preserves from Buckeye Farms.
