Founded in 2006, Happiness Is ... Quilting! in quaint, historic downtown McKinney, Texas, is a full-service quilt store offering quaility fabric, notions, books, kits, patterns, classes and friendly customer service. Our knowledgeable, friendly staff is made up of experienced quilters to help you with all your needs.
We carry a wide range of quilting fabrics specializing in historic reproduction fabrics including 16th and 17th century Dutch chintz. But, we do have a flair for the wild side with our selection of animal print fabrics. We feature wool, specialty threads, English Paper Piecing and applique products.
We offer a full spectrum of classes from beginning sewing to advanced piecing and handsewing to machine sewing classes. Whether you are a beginning seamstress or a seasoned veteran of quilting, we have a class or project or supply to interest you. Periodically through the year, we offer classes and workshops taught by nationally renowned teachers such as Harriet Hargrave, Pat Sloan, and many more.
We take pride in our Block of the Month programs. Our creative staff carefully select and construct samples of these projects. Blocks can be picked up in person or we can ship them to you.
