The Quilt Barn, Kimberly, Idaho

The Quilt Barn was the first shop on my shop hop around the Twin Falls, ID area. What a wonderful way to start my day!

The shop is located in Kimberly, Idaho, in a 100-year-old building. With 6,000 sq ft and a beautiful collection of over 4,000 bolts, I spent 2.5 hours dancing around the shelves, pattern displays, and drooling at the samples hung around the store.

Heather Cartwright, her husband, and the staff were so friendly! Since I arrived at the store early enough in the day, I had their attention all to myself.

Their machine quilting is top notch, as I saw the quilts their customers were picking up during my visit.

After exercising an enormous amount of self-restraint, I left the store with this "little pile" of fabrics, plus a kit.

Before I left they took me on a tour of their 1,600 sq ft retreat area. It is perfect for a group of up to 6 people, and has a separate entrance. As you come in, the first room has a long conference-style table for sewing machines, comfortable chairs, ironing boards attached to the wall, and a wall-mounted flat screen TV. The next room has large cutting tables.

The lodging area upstairs includes 2 bedrooms with 2 twin beds each, a sitting area with two fold-out couches, dining and kitchen area, and laundry room. With very affordable rates, it would be an awesome place for a great time with your BQFFs (Best Quilting Friends Forever!). Plus, if you book for a minimum of 2 nights, your group gets 20% off at the store. Now, beat that!!!


  1. If I ever make it to Idaho, this place is on my list! I admire your restraint in only coming home with a little pile of fabric! LOL!

  2. Denise, we loved meeting you and your enthusiasm is contagious. I hope you can visit us again.

  3. The Quilt Barn in Kimberly is my favorite. I always have to buy an extra suitcase to pack my fabric to take home to Canada. The quality and variety is great. WENDY
