Debbie!My last name used to be Mowinkel, but the kids all called me Bullwinkle, Rocky’s cartoon sidekick. That’s where the name Moose started, and after many years of 4H, the Quilted Moose wasn’t far behind.

I opened the Moose in 2000, and after 19 years I still love buying, displaying, and selling fabric. Our store is always close to exploding with over 7000 bolts, and we’re always trying to jam in a few more for you to look at.   Sign up for our Moose Tracks newsletter or check our blog to be the first to see them.

We carry the largest selection of batiks, Japanese taupes, and flannels in eastern Nebraska. If you’re desperate to find more of a treasured fabric, we will do our best to help – or substitute. Just give us a call or send an email.

We hold a semi-annual event called Mooseketeers; part show-and-tell, part demo session, and part party, Mooseketeers is where we introduce the new books, kits, and patterns we’re excited about. So keep an eye out in the spring and fall for the next ta-dah moment at Mooseketeers.

The Quilted Moose itself is a crazy quilt of fabric bolts, samples, accessories, kits, classes, and a very quilt-smart staff to help you embrace your passion for quilting. Browse our website, but make it a point to come and see us. We’ll leave the Ott light on for you!

As the Quilted Moose celebrates the traditional hand-work and machine piecing that we all love, we cherish the very heart of our home and our family.  As a small business, staffed by a limited number of employees, we often need to balance the shop hours with our family priorities.  When faced with a conflict, the Quilted Moose, consistently honors family needs.

For many years now, we have decided to close the shop on Mondays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We understand that this can be an inconvenience.  Occasionally, we may close for a week/weekend day because of a conflict.  At any time during the year that you are headed out to see us; I encourage you to give us a call (402.332.4178) to make sure that we will be available to help you with your quilting needs.

We hope that you will become or continue to be part of our extended family and understand and share our priorities.
