Enter a world of color and light. When you step into HeartSong Quilts, located in a historic 1902 sandstone building in downtown Hot Springs, South Dakota, your senses are delighted by luscious sights, sounds, and smells and treated to complimentary chocolate. Bright, airy, and filled with the latest designs, colors and trends, you are invited to browse our lines of quilt fabric, thread, books, patterns, batting, quilt kits, and other sewing supplies.
HeartSong Quilts was founded by Ann and Brian Powers in 2008 out of a passion to minister to the quilting and crafting communities of the Black Hills, South Dakota. It was our desire to serve the people in the community by providing a place where people could gather to socialize, share ideas, and encourage each other in their creative projects. We also wanted to serve the community by offering eclectic and fun fabrics as well as supplies, notions, patterns and other sewing needs.
HeartSong Quilts is a creative textile retailer offering a wide range of fabrics, threads, patterns, notions, and books for the quilting enthusiast. We have over 1500 bolts of fabric in 2000 square feet of enchanting retail space. We specialize in the different and unique—like over 60 Australian aboriginal fabrics, yet we also carry a full range of traditional fabrics. We offer classes and instruction for all levels of quilters. Most importantly, we are a fun and loving gathering place for the community.
We bought a historic sandstone building in downtown Hot Springs and renovated it to accommodate the retail shop and a classroom. Ann’s creativity, vision, and knack for fun make every visit an entertainment experience. Ann has a B.A. in Interior Design, and an innate sense of style and fashion. She’s never met a pattern she’ll follow, and she continually innovates and tries new techniques on all her projects. Julie Standen joined us in the shop in 2010, and has been a blessing to us and our customers. A recovering nurse, Julie has been quilting since the mid-80s, and is a phenomenal quilter. Give her some fabric, turn around a couple of times, and voila, she’s got a quilt! She comes at quilting from a different angle than Ann. Julie is a more traditional “old fashioned” (her term) quilter.
We added an APQS Freedom long arm machine about a year ago, and Ann is expressing her creativity through beautiful stitching and quilting, both freestyle and pantographs. The more she does it, the more she loves it, and the more creative she gets. A perfect tool for the artist!
Ann and Brian moved to Hot Springs from South Florida in 2008. They have four children–Christine, Sam, Tom and Jesse. Christine is currently finishing writing and publishing her first novel and working on several art projects including setting up a local gallery. Sam, Tom and Jesse are being homeschooled. Skeeter and Scylla (small auxiliary dog and large primary dog) lie around a lot, but add a lot of love to the family. Ruby the bunny is the latest addition to the family.
We are open Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm.
HeartSong Quilts’ mission is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by providing for the creative needs of quilters everywhere by exceptional products, service, and quality, and to build a true relationship with our customers based on trust and love.
