At Northern Threads we believe, “Every fiber has a time. Every stitch has a place. Every pattern has a memory. Every quilt has a story to tell… and so do you. Start sharing yours today!”
In 1996, Marie Noah opened the business as Quilting Trail in a compact 700 square foot space in the small town of North Pole, Alaska, providing professional quilting service and fabric. By 2008, the shop had expanded twice, and sewing machines and yarn were added to the retail mix, bringing on the need to undergo a name change. Now known widely as Northern Threads, we offer a variety of classes and supplies, covering everything from quilting, sewing, and embroidery to knitting, weaving and crochet! Our customers have helped the company grow from a tiny little shop to a 4,600 square foot store with an online presence. Though our business is much bigger now, we still pride ourselves on personal relationships with our customers, and our promise of your satisfaction guaranteed remains most important to us. We look forward to seeing you here at Northern Threads, Where Tradition Begins!
