About Us



Welcome to Woodside Quilting, located in Des Moines Iowa

We are a new quilt store focusing on you - our customers. 

"The Quilt store designed with you in mind"
 

We opened our doors on Thursday September 26th 2013 in a tiny little building on our property.
And now you have helped us grow out of our little store in the woods to a new larger location.
Our new address is:

Woodside Quilting
5360 NE 14th ST Ste. A
Des Moines Iowa 50313

We may not be the largest quilt store in Des Moines,
but we have lots of fabric, threads, patterns, samples, notions and most of all FUN!
We continue to receive more fabrics each week as our inventory grows.
Right now our focus is on Batiks, blenders and backrounds as well as a large selection of wide backs.
We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you into our store.
We are the official Innova long arm dealer for central Iowa.
Stop in and take a look and feel of this beautiful long arm machine and see for yourself of wonderful quilting can be.
"INNOVA" -
You'll look no further when buying a new quilting machine for yourself.

A Note from Warren

I have always loved quilts.  So, while still in college, I took a quilting class from a wonderful lady named “Mike Wigg”.  I enjoyed everything I learned from her and the women in the class. Thirty years later, I found myself awestruck all over again when I walked into a quilt store and admired the beautiful quilts adorning the walls. I was inspired to enroll in another quilting course to refresh my skills...and from then on, I was hooked!  

I continued to educate myself, enrolling in more classes and learned how to operate a long arm quilting machine.  Many classes (and completed quilts) later, I had made several new quilting friends and discovered a new passion for Long Arm quilting, as well as the desire to use this amazing, time-saving skill to help others. I was very excited when we opened our quilt store, and I am happy to concentrate on making Woodside's quilt store and Long Arm Quilting services the best it can be.

As a note of interest, our company was named for the surrounding area where I grew up. Both the middle school, and the golf course, started by my  great Grandfather, bear the name "Woodside". Perhaps, more significantly, as I sew from home, I look out over our beautiful backyard into a quiet wooded area, which offers the perfect atmosphere for the relaxing pastime of quilting.
