Our Story

As Berlin’s original quilt shop, Helping Hands  carries the highest quality fabric and notions as well as books, patterns, locally made finished quilts and other items.

The shop was founded in 1974 by Alma Mullet and expanded into its current location on the site of the former public library in 1997. Purchased by the Dennis Mullet family in 2011, Helping Hands continues to preserve Amish Country quilting traditions in Berlin while growing to accommodate new trends, skills, and products  in the quilting market.

For those seeking a finished quilt, we carry a wide range of machine pieced and hand-quilted quilts as well as items such as pillows, wall hangings, and table runners, many which have been hand-quilted and are locally made. We also offer custom quilts and can create almost any quilt you envision.  We look forward to be your helping hands as you make your dream quilt a reality!  We hope you plan your visit today and that you enjoy and are inspired and will return often.  Blessings!

Whether you are building a fabric stash for a rainy day quilting project, looking for just the right fabric to complete a specific project, or are curious about how to begin your very first quilt, Helping Hands has everything you need. Our staff of experienced quilters can assist you in choosing from our vast selection of high quality fabric, notions, tools, books, and patterns and answer any questions you have along the way.
