Announcement    BAQ recently achieved $10,000 in sales in a 12 month period.

Total fees on these transactions are about 22%. The good news is BAQ will not be increasing the list prices to their valued customers; however discounts will not be offered to customers who initiated their purchase other than directly on Etsy.

About BornAgainQuilts

Sales 1,188
On Etsy since 2011

Born Again Quilts brings FrankenBlankies back to life! (and we sell vintage textiles too!)

Welcome to Born Again Quilts. I am shop owner Lois Levihn.

I not only have an Etsy shop, I also have a studio/shop located at 4005 South Wayne Ave. in Fort Wayne, Ind. 260-515-9446

My mother taught me how to embroider dish towels and pillow cases when I was nine years old and I have been doing needlework including quilt making ever since.

I started collecting quilts about thirty-five years ago. Like many collectors I had my eyes on the "perfect" ones. Many of these have now been sold through Etsy to satisfied customers around the world.

As quilt prices rose I started looking at the "less than" perfect quilts and grew to appreciate their beauty: Just like the "less than" dogs and cats at the Allen County SPCA that we support.

So I found my true calling when I started taking quilts and restoring them back to a better place in life. I studied quilt restoration through the Kirk Collection and traveled to France on a Deb Roberts World of Quilt travel tour to study their vintage textiles and quilts.

The quilts I sell on Etsy have not undergone any major restoration. At most seams have been re-sewn or reinforced.

I may be engaged to speak at your event. Many people find Quilt Crime Investigation autopsies both fun and informative. Contact me if you are interested.

I am proud to be a lefty and every August 13, International Left-handers Day we celebrate "LeftFest" at the BAQ studio. Proceeds raise let us give a helping "southpaw" to the animals in need.

Thank you for stopping by and learning a little about me; I look forward to hearing from and learning a bit about you!

    A needleworker taught by mom. I found my calling in hand quilting. Like unwanted cats at the shelter, I find quilts in need of needle, thread and vintage fabric and bring them back to life. Now I own a studio/shop in a historic neighborhood.
