Introducing our Newest 2018 Certified Shops!

Our Certified Shops are our lifeline to consumers.  At first glance, our quilts often seem too hard and even intimidating, but given the right instruction and support, even first-time quilters have completed our beautiful quilt tops quickly. And that’s where our Certified Shops come in…

Since 2010, has been committed to building relationships with quilt shops who are dedicated to teaching, selling, and kitting our products.  Since then, we’ve certified over 92 shops across the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe!   We are thrilled and humbled by the interest in bringing our products to cities all over the world, and are committed to supporting shops and quilters who’ve become addicted to paper-piecing the Quiltworx way.  

Please join us in welcoming our newly certified quilt shops that completed training in April. Click on the links below to view more information about each shop.


Cathy’s Classy Quilts • Rochester, WA • 360-339-2120

Cathy’s Classy Quilts is a small shop owned and operated by Cathy Moore, located in Rochester, WA, half way between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, established in August 2011.  The shop started out as a quilting service and HandiQuilter Rep.  The shop added Judy Niemeyer paper piecing and fabrics in the Spring of 2016.

The shop has been collecting Judy and Judel’s collections of fabrics, Hoffman 1895 fabrics, as well as other Batiks since 2016. The shop has an inventory of Judy and Judel’s Strip Sets to go with many of the patterns.  The shop also has an inventory of many of the Quiltworx patterns to pair up with the fabric collections.  I use Quiltster to help my customers choose their fabrics whenever possible.  I also carry all notions necessary for the paper piecing process.

My commitment to provide my customers with excellent customer service and education is my first priority.  I am excited to be a Judy Niemeyer Certified Shop. Please stop by and check out the shop if you are in the area.

Mended Hearts Quilting & Boutique 
Ellsworth, IA • 515-836-4280
First Certified Shop in Iowa!

I am often asked about my shop’s name.  Mended Hearts came about because my daughter had a congenital heart defect.  She had open heart surgery when she was 6 days old.  When she was home and doing exceptional at 6 months, my then 2 year old son was also diagnosed with a heart defect.  My children continue to grow and thrive.  We take each day as they come knowing, good or bad, life can change in a split second. 

Quilting is my way of mending my heart and giving back.  I took my first quilt class in 2000 and started my long arm quilting business in 2011. When the opportunity arose to open my own quilt shop in 2014, I took a leap of faith.  My goal is to provide you with quality materials and classes so you can create beautiful works of art for your home, family, friends and charities that are close to your heart.

Yoder Department Store
Shipshewana, IN 260-768-1945
First Certified Shop in Indiana!

On May 3, 1945 Ora and Grace Yoder made a decision to buy a dry goods store in Topeka Indiana, the heart of Amish country. The original operation included many goods to serve the local farming population. Bib overalls, work shoes, and of course fabric for clothing and quilts were sold.

A number of years later, in 1952, a second location was opened in a nearby town, Shipshewana, Indiana. After operating both locations for decades, a decision was made to sell the Topeka location and to move all operations to the downtown Shipshewana location.

Around the age of 60, Ora decided to move his business “out of town” to new facilities just south of downtown Shipshewana to Yoder Shopping Center, the present-day location. Just like back in 1968 when the business was moved, Yoder Shopping Center is shared with two other businesses, Yoder’s Hardware and Fireside Cafe. 

Even though Ora passed away in 1992 at the age of 85, the business has remained a family owned and managed business passing onto the 3rd generation during 2006.

Yoder Department Store celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2015.

Even though quality transcends country boundaries, made in the U.S.A., which used to be the norm, has definitely become the exception. Yoder’s carries a significant amount of product still made in the U.S.A. and makes every attempt to continue to offer our guests domestically manufactured products whenever possible.

Every year, Yoder’s Department Store organizes the Shipshewana Quilt Festival.  This event attracts thousands of quilters and offers an outstanding lineup of National Instructors, presentations, and workshops throughout the week.  It is truly a bucket list destinations for Quilters everywhere. 

The shop boasts an extensive collection of Basics and Solid Fabrics in both Batiks and Cottons with over 600 hues lining a 120-ft wall of the store.  The shop is proud of their designation as a Top 10 Quilt Shop in Quilt Sampler in 2016 and, it continues to grow, support, and even surprise the Quilting Industry in the quality and quantity of fabrics and quilting supplies it offers.  Excited by his discovery of Quiltster, Andre Yoder began working with Quiltworx and Quiltster this past year to certify both Yoder’s Department Store and the Cotton Corner.  Both shops are looking forward to using the Quiltster tool to better serve customers near and far with excellent custom kit cutting services and a shop full of knowledgeable staff familiar with Quiltworx Products and paper-piecing techniques.
