A visit to La Grange, Texas is not complete without a stop at The Quilted Skein for an incredible visual experience. Quilters and knitters come from as far away as Australia and China to see the world renowned Texas Quilt Museum just next door, and then come to The Quilted Skein to put that creative inspiration to work.
Enter our 150-year-old building and you will be enveloped in color, hundreds of bolts of fabric and an almost endless array of yarn. The Quilted Skein maintains a full library of designer textiles, products and patterns from such fabric innovators as, Kaffe Fassett, Marcia Derse, Jinny Beyer, RJRWindham, and Island Batiks to name a few, all beautifully displayed in custom wood cabinets and specially crafted Plexiglas cases that showcase over 5,000 fat quarters.
Natural light floods the meticulously restored and architecturally stunning space washing over the 13-foot project table where creative vision reigns. Featured archways give a sneak peek into the garden courtyard and solarium that beckon from beyond.
This shop is so fun to be in. Everyone that works there is so friendly and the atmosphere is very soothing and relaxing. The knitting classes I have taken are very easy to understand and I had a great time. The selection of yarns and the things one needs to knit with are wonderful. If you haven't visited this shop you are missing out! -- L. Charlson
