Basketcases Unlimited is a small retail quilt shop located in a barn in rural DeKalb County, just west of the town of Sycamore. We are celebrating our 16th year of educating others about traditional American craftwork with classes in various pioneer traditions. We are DeKalb County's oldest quilt shop with more than 1000 bolts of fabric. We specialize in historical reproduction fabrics, patterns, and books. We feature Moda fabrics and many products from Quilt in a Day. We offer on-site machine quilting services and classes in basket making, chair caning, rug hooking, penny rugs as well as machine and hand piecing instruction for quilters.
