Do you have any advice for someone who wants to start quilting who never has before?”
Take a class from an organized, experienced teacher. Purchase the correct, quality supplies that are advised. Purchase quality fabrics. This way, you will always have the correct tools and the fabric in your quilt will last forever. Try to map out and plan your quilt before you dive in. The Electric Quilt Products are excellent tools for this job. We have had many very satisfied quilters because they planned the quilt on their computers and felt the quilt was truly “One of a Kind!”

What’s your favorite part of the day at work?
My favorite time of the day is the morning. We walk through the store (as small as it is) and wonder who may come through the door on this day. Customers can be so creative and friendly. They love to come in with Show-and-Tell, especially when they have purchased the fabric here. This is always a happy time for us as we can remember when we were first teaching them what a “Fat Quarter” was, and how they had to use a quarter-inch foot for their machines. We cannot believe how talented they all are and how willing they are to share their art and stories with us.

If you have taken quilting classes, who was your favorite teacher and what was the class on?
The best national educator that ever set foot in this store was Emily Nipp. She has retired from teaching, sadly, but we hope she is still stitching up a storm. We were mesmerized by her enthusiasm, her easy smile, her strict quilting rules, and her ability to ease every student’s apprehension and tension about free motion quilting and using unusual threads and techniques. What a whirlwind she was.
We also adore Stephanie Kimura. She is still available and whipping up quilts, patterns, pocketbooks, garments and FUN. We never laughed so much as we did the three days she was in the shop. Everyone wanted to take her home. She makes you just jump in and play with all the built-in stitches in your machine. She is a very thorough instructor and all the students completed their projects. This is very important to attendees.
