Virtual Shop Hop: Cotton Creek Mill, West Branch, Iowa
If I ever opened a quilt shop, I would want it to be like Cotton Creek Mill. Located on a historic main street in West Branch, Iowa, the quilt shop has character you often find.
There are original hardwood floors, stained wood shelves, painted wood trim facade. Every detail about the building is beautiful.
And of course there is some gorgeous fabric as well. Cotton Creek Mill does a good job of stocking to fit its size. It isn’t a large store but it feels comfortably full with the fabric selection available.
There is a wide selection of types of fabrics available, patriotic, historic, Christmas, batiks, children’s. One of my favorites was a collection of Moda Bella Solids in pre-cuts. I brought home several for a few scrappy projects I have in mind.
There also is a beautiful selection of wools. I haven’t gotten into the wool applique trend, but these fabrics sure are beautiful. Cotton Creek Mill also has a scrap bag section, where you pay one low price for all the odds and ends you an stuff in a bag. Our resident cheapskate took full advantage and came away with an impressive haul.
The Cotton Creek Mill made for a fun little stop on my sit-n-sew’s I-80 shop hop. The Cotton Creek Mill is located at 108 West Main Street, West Branch, Iowa. West Branch is also the final resting place of President Herbert Hoover and is home to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library. So you can take in a little history along with your fabric shopping.
