What is a vacation without a visit to a quilt shop? Now you can take a trip on the web and surf right in or visit us in person. Named one of American Patchwork & Quilting's "10 Best Shops" in their Fall 2004 Quilt Sampler issue, Once Upon A Quilt...where dreams come true, Inc. is located in sunny Ft. Lauderdale Florida. We are easy to find, in fact, we are less than 4 miles from the Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale International Airport and 7 miles from the cruise port with 10 of the cruise ship hotels within 2 miles. Whether you are coming via I-95, I-595 or Florida's Turnpike, you are within minutes of our door… just .50 miles east of the Florida Turnpike and .75 miles west of I-95 on the south side of Griffin Road.
We opened in December of 1998 with just 500 bolts and our growth has been colossal since. The shop completed an expansion in January 2010 and a second expansion in January 2016 to add a 1500 square foot classroom and event center, to better serve our customers. We have a full machine service center, a longarm room that provides machine quilting service to our customers, 3000+ bolts of the finest 100% cotton fabric for quilters and we are a BERNINA Excellence Dealer, in fact we were awarded District A Dealer of the Year in 2008, 2013 and 2016. In addition to fabric and BERNINA sewing machines, we carry an extensive array of notions, patterns, embellishments for every project including crazy quilting. With bag making at a peak we have all the patterns and supplies you will ever need. We always have many beautiful quilt kits and a wonderful and varied selection of gorgeous gifts, great to add to your quilting purchase and nice for those that do not yet quilt whom are visiting with their Quilt friends. .
