A Peek Inside the Machine Shed

A Peek Inside the Machine Shed


Welcome to the Machine Shed at Missouri Star Quilt Company! You guessed it, the Machine Shed is our shop full of sewing machines! It’s also home to lots of thread, templates and other quilting notions.


Doesn’t it have such a great feel to it? You’ll be able to find all the Sizzix™ Machines and dies and you can even test them out. They make cutting small shapes a breeze!



We carry 6 models of Baby Lock™ sewing machines, including the Katherine, Sofia2, Rachel, MollyJane and BL9. They can all be found and taken for a test drive in the Machine Shed. (Baby Lock™ sewing machines are available in store only.)


Check out this wall of thread. Isn’t it beautiful?? There are hundreds of fantastic hues to choose from! You can shop thread online as well, HERE.

Jenny Aurifil

You’ll also find Jenny’s “Heritage” Thread Collection from Aurifil™ in the Machine Shed. Aren’t those colors gorgeous? Jenny handpicked each of them as a tribute to her Scandinavian heritage. Grab yours HERE.

We hope you’ll stop by the Machine Shed and take a look around next time you’re in Hamilton, MO. It’ll keep you in stitches! 🙂

    The wall of thread itself looks like a work of art!

    Oh, how I wish my budget allowed me to have a brand new sewing machine … I’ll be saving a while for one of those beauties!

  • Nancy Saller

    I love my Dala Horse too! It’s just like yours. I hope to visit Hamilton next year on a road trip from California. Love your tutorials but I’m already old and I don’t have enough time to do them all, darn it anyway!

  • We hope you can visit, Nancy. That would be so fun!

  • Hopefully one day, Susan! 🙂

  • Isn’t it stunning! We love just staring at it! 🙂

    My favorite tutorial!!!? I love them all –informative and fun all in one.
    The best though is visiting Hamilton and going shopping!!

  • Kathy Smith

    Jenny you make quilting tutorials so easy to follow I just started quilting this year and have followed your instruction and purchased from Missouri star so glad I found you….

  • Kelly W

    Love, love, love your tutorials but have a question or request!!! Is there any way you can put yardage need for larger quilts that you’ve shown. I know I could figure it out, but with all your talented help it would be great to have it at our fingertips for crib, twin, double, queen, king sizes. Thanks for making piecing quilts so much fun and attainable for folks like me.

  • Debra Woracek

    I love all the tutorials. I love that I can watch a video but also have the MSQC magazine to refer to. I am doing a pinwheel quilt right now with a layer cake I purchased at your store in Hamilton. Such Fun!

  • Rita S

    All the tutorials are great, I always return to the receiving blanket as there’s so many babies being born in my family. Family member 100 is due in November!

  • Jackie Goosen

    Jenny is the sole reason I am quilting. If it weren’t for your tutorials and simplified process…I wouldn’t do it! Thank you!!

  • Nancy

    LOVE Jenny’s tutorials, block magazine & EVERYTHING about MSQC!

  • Marnie Houston

    I love all of Jenny’s tutorials. But the ones I love the most are the ones where you can change the blocks for a different look or a different size quilt. Hugs to Jenny and all the hardworking family at Missouri Quilts!
