About

We make wooden products that help organize the quilters work area.

My wife and I, Sally and Jim Kluttz, started Pappy’s WoodShop as a result of the great recession. I lost my job September 2012 and was unable to get back into my field as an engineer at 63 years old. After nine unsuccessful months looking for a job, we decided to turn my woodworking hobby into a business and retire early in June of 2013.

Sally was working at Pieces and Patches at that time, a quilt store in Lexington SC. The owner, Audrey Liddle, asked me to make a larger fabric cutting table for the store than they had. When the cutting table was completed Audrey asked me to make a ruler rack that would hang on the wall next to the cutting table to replace her ruler rack which laid flat on the table, taking up valuable space. Once the new ruler rack was hung on the wall and customers saw it, they wanted one too.

In June of 2013, after selling 64 ruler racks in three months through Pieces & Patches, Pappy’s WoodShop (PWS) was officially in the business of selling ruler racks to other quilt stores in South & North Carolina and on ETSY’s website. In October of 2013 we started vending at quilt shows.

In October 2013 PWS stopped selling wholesale to the quilt shops and started vending at quilt shows. By that time our second product, the Binding Winder, was introduced. Since that time we have added all the products you see listed in our ETSY shop, most of which were inspired by customer feedback.

As of the beginning of April 2016 we have sold over 1,300 Ruler racks. Our business is growing thanks to ETSY. We are happy to be part of the ETSY community.

My grandchildren call me Pappy, so that’s how our business name became “Pappy’s WoodShop”. We take them with us to our shows in picture quilts that hang in our booth!

We are grateful for Audrey Liddle’s Ruler Rack inspiration that started Pappy’s WoodShop.
