Aitkin Quilts - About

Aitkin Quilts & Fabric Shop

Kelly Simons opened this store in July of 2010. She saw the need for a provider of high quality quilting materials and accessories for serious quilt lovers in north central Minnesota.

Kelly felt by offering education, gathering opportunities, and the finest fabrics, experienced quilters will frequent her store.

Aitkin Quilts & Fabric is centrally located in  Aitkin, easily accessible by anyone living or simply passing through this popular vacation destination near Brainerd, Grand Rapids, and Garrison, Minnesota.

Bring along your family and children to see what we have to offer.

In January of 2013 Kelly moved her store to 936 2nd Street N.W. in Aitkin to join forces in a building with Specialty Embroidery.   Later that year Kelly had decided she had things she wanted to do yet in her life and decided to move out of state, she decided to sell her store to long time friend Billie Forster.

The store continues to thrive mixing Kelly’s modern quality fabrics with Billie’s up north adventure fabrics.   People love the store because it really does have something for everyone.   With over 3,000 bolts of fabrics we are happy to have you visit us.  

After 9 years of serving the Aitkin community in all of the needs of a quilter we have decided we needed to go worldwide and have decided that a virtual store would be the best for what we wanted to do.   

So on October 1st and beyond look for us at Quilt shows in the region and virtually online at

Billie Forster and Katie Shequen are committed to offering you the best in what quilting has to offer today and beyond!
