About Us

Fabrics, patterns, kits, and  that celebrate the diversity and spirit of Alaska.  Nestled under Devils Thumb along the Wrangell narrows  in southeast Alaska lies The Fabric Basket,  located on main street, 902 North Nordic in Petersburg, Alaska.

We are your local cozy corner quilt shop with over 500 bolts of delightful Alaska prints and luscious,  versatile batiks.  We feature the work of local artists from around the state and especially from Petersburg.  You can find moose, deer, wolves, bear, otter, eagles, salmon prints, along with humpback and orca whales.  We also carry a large variety of prints celebrating the Southeast Alaska Native culture of the Tlingit, Haida  and Tsimshian tribes.  Along with Scandinavian prints that represent our Norwegian heritage.  Check out our selection of berries, florals and landscapes for those beautiful aprons, pillow cases, and purses.  Soak in the colorful rainbow of batiks from basic 1895’s  to especially made for Alaska batiks, all from Hoffman to you for your project dreams.
