Hearts to Holly Quilt Shop    Charlevoix, Michigan

Hearts to Holly is located in beautiful Charlevoix, Michigan along the Northern coast of Lake Michigan.  Hearts to Holly’s clever name means “something for all seasons” – Valentine’s Day (hearts) to Christmas (Holly).  The shop is located one block off the main street in Charlevoix’s downtown shopping area.

Owners Mike and Sue Miller have packed this shop’s three buildings with everything you can imagine for the quilter. When I visited the shop, Sue was working behind the counter and offered a great friendly greeting.  She walked me through the main shop. Outside the main shop is a porch with chairs for “resting.”  A small yard then extends to their back building for their classroom and holiday fabrics.

I particularly liked the shops new patterns they are creating and marketing.  The quilt patterns called “Holly Bunches” are small quilts that use 10 fat quarters to make.  They sell the patterns and also sets of matched fat quarters.  These are also available on the Hearts to Holly website www.HeartstoHolly.com or on their Facebook page.  If you are in the Charlevoix area make sure to stop in and say hello to Sue!
