Bittersweet Quilt Shop & Home Decor

Nestled in a former church, Bittersweet Quilt Shop & Home Decor in Pinconning, Michigan, is a quilter’s sanctuary.

Divine Inspiration

The former church, now home to Bittersweet Quilt Shop & Home Decor, boasts an original brick exterior, stained-glass windows, and lots of woodwork.

Bird’s-Eye View

The view from the former choir loft offers a spectacular perspective of the well-stocked shop.

Fans of Featherweights

The shop offers a selection of top-notch vintage Featherweight machines and is home to the monthly Featherweight Frolic club.

A Bounty of Samples

Old doors form a railing around the perimeter of the loft that hosts a multitude of stitched samples.

Rows of Fabric

Bolts of fabric line antique church pews and shelving units that wrap stained-glass windows. 

Beautiful Backdrops

Original stained-glass windows serve as a backdrop for samples and fabrics at Bittersweet Quilt Shop & Home Decor.  

Sharp Cheddar Stars

Cheddar and black tone-on-tone fabrics combine in a scrappy Log Cabin quilt. Shop owner Tina Bauer designed Sharp Cheddar Stars for Quilt Sampler® Fall/Winter 2013 magazine.
