Vintage Threads

Making you feel at home while you shop is one of our goals as owners of the shoppe. We love meeting new people and helping quilters in any way we can to give them a successful quilting experience.

Our shop is located in downtown Dyersville, Iowa. Our 100 yr. old building was originally the home of the town bank but is best remembered as Grawe's Tap which we are told housed a beautiful mahogany bar. We were attracted to the building because of the lovely display area in the front which has beautiful stain-glass windows that add to the old vintage charm. Dyersville is a wonderful small town of about 4,000 people who take great pride in their community. Tourism thrives in Dyersville. Some of the local attractions include the National Farm Toy Museum, Basilica of St. Francis Xavier, Dyer-Botsford Doll Museum, and of course, the famous Field of Dreams movie site.

Quilting fabric, notions, hand-dyed wool, books, patterns & Horn Cabinets are the products that we offer to our customers. We sell many of our completed quilts from our samples. We also carry custom made quilt racks and quilt hangers made to order by people in the area. Supporting local pattern designers is important to us and we try to carry their patterns and products in our shop. A variety of classes from beginning to advanced are offered. In order to accommodate our customers busy schedules, our classes are offered during the week, both daytime & evening, and on Saturdays as well.
