Welcome to The Common Thread Mercantile! We are an independent fabric shop selling premium cotton fabric and notions for making quilts and your various cotton crafts.

We’re a little different than the usual fabric shop. We consign items such as jewelry, handmade soaps and candles, repurposed items and vintage furniture. There is a seating area out front for those you bring along that prefer to wait for you in a comfy chair, decorated in 1940-50’s style.

On Wednesdays the kitchen vignette has a covered dish of goodies and a fresh pot of coffee…the vintage kind 🙂

Every Friday we have a free Sew Together. Bring in your machine and work on your current project or put some time to those UFO’s. We have lots of space to spread out your quilt if needed. If you don’t care to lug your heavy machine, borrow one of our reconditioned vintage Singers! In any case, parking is immediately outside of the door and there is a ramp just inside the door, so at least the logistics of bringing yours in make it much easier.

Hope to see you soon! We are located at 153 Main Avenue in Nitro, WV…just across from Diehl’s Restaurant. They have been around for over 60 years and are known for many miles around for their retro style and good country cooking. Grab lunch, and come on over!

Hours:  Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 – 5:00
