Ladyfingers is centrally located in the beautiful, historic Oley Valley between Pottstown and Reading, PA. Our store is in the former Griesemersville Hotel. Built in 1860, this stagecoach stop served travelers on their way from Reading to Philadelphia with over 40 rooms, a saloon, post office, and general store. We restored this landmark in 1995 and now serve quilters and sewers world wide with over 4000 bolts of designer fabrics, a fantastic array of threads, notions, books and patterns. We regularly display scores of quilts for your inspiration, and offer classes in our spacious, well lit classroom. Our helpful, courteous staff is always ready to help with your special projects, and special orders are welcome! We offer mail order service and will ship just about anything we can get in a box! Ladyfingers is owned by Gail Kessler, who also designs fabrics for Andover Fabrics in New York City. Her collections are featured at Ladyfingers, along with fabrics from other fine companies including Hoffman, Marcus, Kona Bay, Westminster, Free Spirit, Robert Kauffman, Michael Miller, P & B, Timeless Treasures, and many more. Ladyfingers is known for stocking fabrics that you may not find elsewhere, making us THE destination store when you are looking for something special.
