About Us

Plains Montana is nestled in the shadow of Baldy Mountain along Highway 200 and the Clark Fork River in Northwestern Montana.  This wonderful town of welcoming people has had some form of a quilt store for a long time.  It is so nice to have the convenience of shopping locally, although a road trip traveling through Plains to Missoula, Kalispell, or Polson can also be fun!  However, in December 2021 Mary Anne’s Fabrics closed as the owner took the opportunity to retire.

That would be where I step in!  My name is Melissa Compton - my husband Gregg and I moved to Plains in 2018 from Freeland Michigan.  Our boys had grown, graduated college, and were out living their lives.  It was a dream of ours to move to this wonderful state and become part of a small community again, so we packed up everything and moved.

I began quilting before we left Michigan under the guidance of my mom, and I have become truly obsessed!  I want to make everything!  I love the hunt for the perfect pattern, the right coordinating fabrics, and then the relaxation that I find when I am running fabric through my sewing machine.

I decided that it was time to pursue this obsession of mine and take the opportunity to open a new quilt store THE FABRIC PIXIE located at 100 Farmer Street in Plains (may be a familiar location to some of you).  I have revamped the layout of the store and filled it with yards of fun and fabulous fabric.  In the back of the store, I created a cozy gathering space for classes, instruction, or a place to be able to come sew.  So come join us for some fellowship, wander the shelves of wonderful fabric, and for those of you that may be too far away, spend some time shopping the website.  I am so excited to help you find what you need to pursue this passion of ours which fills our hearts and souls with happiness – QUILTING!
