Rainbow & Calico Things, Williamsburg, Iowa
I’ve been shopping at Rainbow & Calico Things for years, but I’ve never actually been to the their rural location on a farm in Williamsburg, Iowa.
The owner is a member of my quilt guild, so I’ve shopped from boxes she’s brought to quilt retreats and her booth at our quilt show. I have loved her bright fabric selections and was very excited to finally visit the shop.
The quilt shop is a built right on the owner’s farm. The building is large with four distinct rooms for fabric and classroom space. There is a little bit of everything but as the name suggests, the inventory is dominated by bright, fun fabrics. There are batiks, children’s prints and just plain cheery prints to brighten your day.
I came home with some batiks and a beautiful blue flannel to back a quilt I am planning with fabrics I bought from Rainbow & Calico Things at the last Great River Quilt Show. I’ve always loved their selection and was glad to finally see the shop in person.
