Midwest Living Review
Miller's Dry Goods originally catered to the local Amish community, but today the quilt barn and fabric shop are a major shopping destination for fabric connoisseurs. The quilt barn actually is housed in a converted barn, and the fabric shop was formerly a harness-making business. Both buildings are as plain-vanilla on the inside as they are on the outside, but the selection is incredible, featuring more than 8,000 bolts of fabric. Fabrics range from tried-and-true Amish broadfall and calico to corduroys and denims to designer prints to chenille, blanket satin, and other home-decor fabrics. The quilt shop sells ready-made quilts plus table runners, place mats, wall hangings, rag rugs, appliance covers, patterns, notions and stencils. Of course, Miller's also sells quilting supplies and takes orders for custom quilts. Browsing through the merchandise in both shops could easily consume an entire day. We like the idea that, because the buildings are virtually void of decoration, the quilts and fabrics take center stage.
