On Etsy since 2013

It's not work when you do what you love!

I started selling antique and vintage fabric online in 1999 as a way to stay home with my daughters and still make some extra money. My love of vintage and antique quilts spilled over into a love of all vintage textiles including linens, lace, aprons, handkerchiefs.
While my daughters are a little bit older now, it just means I get to spend more time doing what I love...playing with fabric!
Over the years I have added several services to the business including Restoration and Conservation of antique quilts, Appraisals for antique and contemporary quilts, Documentation Services for quilt collections, I offer workshops and lectures, appraisal days, and as a Quilter of 18 years, I also offer professional quilt services including Custom Made quilts, Memory Quilts, T Shirt Quilts, and long arm quilting services.
Every day I get to go into my studio and work with beautiful fabric, new and old, and call it "going to work". What more could lady ask for?
