Up and Running!!

It has turned out to be a red-letter week!

For the past 6 months, Maggie and I have been working on a business start-up, and our website went live last Tuesday. We've been tweaking and getting broken links to work and the like, and having fun with it!

And thinking, “How did we get here??!!”

Back in February, an email in my inbox announcing the sale of an online discount fabric business got us to thinking. At first we wondered if we might want to buy that business, and started the process of working with the seller. But the more we thought about it, the more we realized what we really wanted was to start our own. Thus began our quest for information about online businesses, small business in Washington State, market research, website building companies, and on and on.

What we discovered has conveyed us to this point of actually pushing the “go” button!

Both Maggie and I love quilting. We have been blessed to be part of what we believe to be one of the most amazing quilt groups ever. Kindness, encouragement, and creativity abound and we have reaped the benefits of all of that, and more. You can check out our In Stitches Blog here and see what we mean!

Not only do we love quilting, we love designing. I can't think of a time that either one of us actually used a ready-made pattern “as is.”

We also love reproduction fabrics and recreating traditional quilts.

Add all that to the love of finding a good deal, and a passion for really good customer service, and there you have our business goals:

To provide:
  • The highest quality reproduction quilting fabrics
  • The most winsome traditional quilting patterns-
    • from our own design table
    • and from other wonderful designers
  • Good Old-Fashioned Customer Service
  • Affordable prices with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We hope you enjoy keeping up with us here on the blog and that you have fun visiting our website.
We'd love to hear from you!
