If you live in this area, you might want to get in on this little bit of fun. I'm hosting Wooly Wednesdays at the shop on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 - 12:00noon. Kaaren from the Painted Quilt is going to be there each Wednesday morning to inspire and share her beautiful work. Approximately once a month, we'll have an original design ready to share with you in kit form. For those living out of this area, you could also get the kits by mail. We start Wednesday, Dec 11th. There is limited space for the workshops, so if you think you might want to join us, let me know. You can call the shop at 902-378-7845 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
