Today’s stop in our Hamilton Visitor’s Guide is at Penney’s Quilt Shop, our Missouri Star solids and basics shop!
Prepare yourself for a giant dose of COLOR!
This building has some great history! Most recently it was a hardware store. Many many years ago, it was a JC Penney store, owned by JCP himself! It was his 500th store. How cool is that?
Did you know that Hamilton is the birthplace of JCP? True story! That’s a Visitor’s Guide post for another day.
Back to the fabric!
Penney’s Quilt Shop houses solids, minky fabrics and basics that don’t go out of print. A recent visitor from Kansas City said it was “like walking into a life sized crayon box.” We loved hearing that! Want a tour?
Along this wall, you’ll see all of our Robert Kaufman Kona solids.
We have just about every color and will very soon have them all! That sign was used for a traveling play about the life of JC Penney. A local Hamilton resident had it in storage and offered it to us. We LOVE how it looks and love that it is hanging in what used to be a JCP store! So cool!
There are solids precuts in bright and cheery bundles.
At the back of the shop, you’ll see our Shannon Cuddle fabrics. We’ve got every color, too!
The right half of the shop is home to allllll of the Moda Bella solids:
Our Stonehenge section is also growing! It now includes hundreds of different prints!
Oh, I see. You’re more of a stars person? OK.
What about chevrons? Big or small, we’ve got them all!
Penney’s Quilt Shop is located across the street and down a block from the main shop, at 215 N Davis Street. It’s open Monday- Saturday 9am-5pm, just like the main shop, Sew Seasonal and the Mercantile. Phew! That’s four shops! Did you know a 5th one is undergoing restoration right now? For batiks! Should be open this summer! If you’re visiting any time soon, check out all of the posts in our Visitor’s Guide series. We want to make your visit a great one!
