About Us

Quilting & Crafts by Mercer - Our shop is located 6 miles south of the Mackinac Bridge in beautiful northern Michigan.  In business since 2002 I started the business as a longarm quilter.  However as the demands for quality fabrics and other quilting related items increased it was necessary to have a larger inventory of quality fabrics and a variety of quilting books, patterns and notions. 

In 2020 when the Covid pandemic and mandated state closures happened it was not possible to continue long arm quilting.   I now do online sales only and have  discontinued the longarm quilting. For safety sake,  I do continue to clean and sanitize frequently.

Fabrics, books, patterns and notions will be available online to ship to your home.  If you live in or are visiting our beautiful northern Michigan shop curbside pickup will be available by appointment.  

We believe in letting our customers know we appreciate their business which means every order includes something as a token of our appreciation.  Please enjoy your visit by internet and thank you for spending time with us.  

 Returns:  Sorry we do not accept returns and consider all sales final.  This applies to fabric, books, patterns and notions.

While we endeavor to make sure all shipments are complete and accurate, if we make a mistake we will do whatever possible to make it right.  We want all quilters to be happy quilters!

Other:  Color--While we endeavor to have high color photographs of all products on our website, due to the vagaries of computer monitors and color reproduction, we cannot be responsible for how accurate a color appears on any device.

Our Fabric:  We sell only first quality 100% cotton quilting fabric from the best manufacturers.  Our fabric are usually 42 inches to 44 inches in width.

We sell fabric we like, there are many, many manufacturers and designers out there, and we have decided to be selective and this means we are not always selling what others are selling.

Sold Out Fabric:  If a fabric is sold out online you can contact us to see if that fabric is available to be reordered but if we are "sold out" chances are we are unable to order more.  Fabric manufacturers produce several lines and collections each year in a limited quantity.  When this is gone it is gone and cannot be purchased again.  Some manufacturers have extensive "basic" collections that are reproduced from year to year but even within these collections certain colors - or even entire lines - may be discontinued.

Questions or concerns:  Please contact us by phone, 231-537-2180, or email.  We are located in the eastern time zone of the U.S. if you choose to call please do so between 10:AM and 5:PM, Tuesday through Saturday.  Email at any time - quiltingandcraftsbymercer@live.com.
