About

Three Generations of Crafters in One Shop.

I have vivid memories of my grandmother and mother crafting and quilting when I was a child. They attended the odd craft fair here and there. When I became a mother and opted to stay home full time with my girls, I found I needed a release and a way to bring in some extra income.

I starting quilting and found I loved making quilts and being creative with fabric. I approached my mom and grandmother and they were in. All of a sudden three generations were all working together on a new venture.

We create mostly one-of-a-kind pieces so our inventory changes often and regularly. We have very different styles so there really is something for everyone. We allow our customers to influence our directions and try to offer items they are interested in. We are meticulous with our quilts and typically attack them as a team.

I love what we have going on and can't wait to see where we progress to. Thanks for joining our journey!

    I am the youngest of the three generations with input in this shop. My mother and grandmother, both admittedly 'unsure' of technology, are designers and mentors. I am a wife and mother of two beautiful girls. Life is good.
