Mabelina Quilt Shop   Ortonville, Michigan

Mabelina is located north of Clarkston, Michigan in the old downtown section of Ortonville.  Some interesting facts about Mabelina:  The building that Mabelina refurbished was once the town Post Office.  The shop name, “Mabelina” is owner, Brenda Hefferman’s two grandmothers names combined (Mabel & Lena). The Shop opened in 2002 had handles 3500 bolts of fabric. 

When visiting the shop it is easy to find, has ample parking and the shop is laid out well.  It has many samples of projects on display.  I particularly liked the display of the wool projects for sale (see photo).  There is a large workroom right inside the front door – every time I have visited there has been quilters in working on projects.  Mabelina offers several groups as “classes or sewing opportunities.”  You can check out their website at www.mabelina.com
