Susan Hanson- Store Manager
I have been around sewing my entire life. My grandmother would make patch work quilts using scraps from clothing and drapery fabric she received from a local drape factory. These quilts were made for function rather than art as many of us quilt today. My mother and grandmother would sew every day clothing but my mother dabbled in making doll clothes as well.
I learned to sew mostly clothes, but as my children got older, I was drawn more to quilting. My quilting time has been limited between job and family duties but have been an avid quilter for the past 20 years.
