Quilted Hearts

On a rainy, cold and dismal December day we were delighted to be welcomed to the warmth and hospitality at Quilted Hearts, Ltd. Located about 30 minutes North of Atlanta, Georgia at the northern tip of beautiful Lake Lanier and just 15 minutes from Interstate 85, this little shop is well worth a stop if you are in the area or traveling through Georgia. Sally Babcock has owned the shop for 12 years and she has a staff of 12 friendly and helpful gals. Sally's customers tell her that her staff is always having fun at work.

Quilted Hearts

Quilted Hearts has a decided traditional and country primitive specialty. Homespun plaids, Moda brushed flannels, Thimbleberries are in abundance. In addition, there is a large novelty section, many batiks and gorgeous color runs in hundreds of prints.

Quilted Hearts

All current patterns, notions, and gadgets are plentiful, along with some unusual buttons, gift items for quilting friends and wonderful rug hooking and knitting departments. The rug hooking section has yummy selections of wools, tools and patterns and there is a group of gals who meet at the shop every Tuesday called the "Happy Hookers" The knitting section is fairly new to the shop but has been hugely successful and will likely be enlarged in the near future. Sally has brought in some of the most gorgeous threads imaginable along with all the current books and needles. Wonderful hand dyed yarns, ribbon for knitting and some scrumptious colors for knitting socks, which is all the rage. Knitting has come out of the closet and is huge again. Hurray!

Quilted Hearts

Quilted Hearts has a roomy classroom for the numerous classes offered on a quarterly basis and hosts several quilting clubs. The room is made available on Mondays for "Sew What" for customers to just come and sew all day and share ideas with others.

Stop by some day, it is a delightful shop.
