About Us


For 13 years, Expressions in Threads has been providing the Quad City quilting community with an extensive variety of premium quality fabrics, notions, books, patterns, kits, classes, clubs, and more.

Since opening in 2004, our store has doubled in size. Our fabric inventory has expanded to include over 4000 bolts of vibrant colors, fresh prints, and delightful textures that inspire the imagination and offer endless creative options.

We sell Janome’s innovative line of affordable, high quality sewing and embroidery machines and offer new owners free instruction with the purchase of their machine. Our technician services many brands and models.

While our store has experienced unprecedented growth, our commitment to provide customers with exceptional service has always been the hallmark of our business. We strive to maintain a casual, welcoming store atmosphere where quilters of all ages, styles, and skill levels can gather to learn, share ideas, and inspire each other. Our talented, enthusiastic staff members are always on hand to offer attentive, personalized assistance, along with genuine encouragement and support to help customers finish their projects and succeed at quilting.

When you're in the Quad City area, we hope you'll make a trip to historic LeClaire, IA to enjoy some leisurely shopping, friendly conversation, and authentic down-home service!

We are proud supporters of Project Linus, Ryan's Case For Smiles and Quilts of Valor.
