2024 Winner Highlight: Seven Sisters Quilt Shop

Seven Sisters Quilt Shop in Carson City is the Regional Winner for Michigan!

Read on to learn more about this shop that is famous for its wonderful fabric selection and outstanding customer service!

Please tell us your store’s story.

Seven Sisters Quilt Shop was an idea that was fun to talk about for many years. We loved to sew together and visit quilt shops together. So often, when shopping at another quilt shop, we would look at each other and say, “We could do this!”

One day, we began to think about it seriously. We started to look at empty buildings and make phone calls. Things began to move along much faster than what we even felt ready for. It seemed ‘meant to be.’

In January of 2010, Seven Sisters Quilt Shop opened her doors for the very first time. What a wonderful ride it all has been!

We cherish the beautiful friendships we have made through the years and are grateful to be doing what we love best day after day.

For those who have not seen the store, please describe it.

Seven Sisters Quilt Shop is located on Main Street of the small town of Carson City, Michigan. Our shop of 2,500 square feet has a warm and homey layout. Homemade cookies and coffee are served every day atop a 1940’s style antique kitchen stove.

After walking through the store, quilters notice the bright, modern fabrics of Tula Pink and Kaffe Fassett, and also the vintage tones of Lori Holt and Tilda to name a few. We often hear the exclamation “There is something for everyone here!” We accept this as quite a compliment.

“They know me by name and are so helpful no matter the crazy request. They make you feel like family.”


We have a beautiful classroom in an adjacent building, The Schoolhouse. Our most popular day is Girls Day Out, where quilters bring their own projects and enjoy sewing time with old and new friends. Homemade soup and bread make this everyone’s favorite day of all. We have recently opened Seven Sisters Quilt Retreat, located a half mile from our quilt shop. It is a comfortable and convenient place with modern and up to date decor.

“The variety of fabrics and supplies is wonderful, but even more wonderful is the staff. Everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable. It amazes me how they seem to remember everyone’s name, even after just a single visit. And they are all so thoughtful and caring. Everyone who stops in soon feels like a member of a wonderful extended family.”

In conclusion

When asked about the impact of the Local Quilt Shop Contest, Rachel said, “It was heartwarming to read all the kind words and encouraging comments from our sweet quilters. We love being a small town quilt shop in the center of Michigan, surrounded by beautiful fabric and the kindest ladies on the planet. There is no place else in the world we would rather be!”
