About

The beginning of a Family Business

In 2000 my grandmother opened The Busy Bee in a small town in Southwest Oklahoma. It began as her hobby and quickly became a business. Over the years she bought several long arm quilting machines and enlarged her selection of fabric. She was always wanting someone in the family to take over her shop. Of course we were all too busy in our careers trying to become successful to take the time. In 2008 tragedy struck my family and I began working with my grandmother on a daily basis in her shop for a short time. I fell in love with fabric and quilting then and thought one day I would want to follow her footsteps and run the store. Unfortunately life happens and took me away for a short time. In January of 2011 my grandfather fell ill and my grandmother needed to stay home to take care of him. I finally was at a point in my life that I could leave my job and help. It has been such a joy working with my grandmother and learning so many new things. Her passion grew into my passion and now my creativity never ends. :) We started our Etsy shop in August of 2011 hoping we could make a little more money than what our small town was giving us. It has been a success. Etsy has allowed me to do so much more with my storefront. I am proud to say that in September 2012 I was able to purchase The Busy Bee from my grandmother and allow her to "semi-retire". I have recently moved to Whitesboro, Texas and will continue to run my online store. I have however closed my storefront in Mangum, Oklahoma. It was a hard decision to make, but the best one for my family. I have to thank each and everyone of my customers for giving me the opportunity to serve them even further. It brings me great joy knowing that every piece of fabric I sell is fueling someone else's passion to create.
Thank you to all my Etsy customers.

    My husband, I couldn't run my shop with out him. If it breaks he fixes it. If I need it built he builds it. He takes care of the shop and me. Don't tell him, but he also is a great gopher... Go for this, Go for that. :)
