Who knows? You may be the next feature on our Customer Showcase!
This month's showcase makes a mama proud! Our owner, Kelly Warnock, had hoped her daughter would take up sewing and quilting. Instead, she's focused on wrestling three kids, leaving little time for much of anything else! (We're holding out hope though...) However, a likely heir to the sewing and quilting linage surfaced with our son, Will, decided to make a quilt for his girlfriend, Hannah. Will is the exact opposite of what you think of when you think "quilter." He's more likely found moving dirt with heavy equipment, clearing land, building furniture, or neck deep in grease working on some sort of engine. And when he's not working, he's hunting or fishing.
On a mission, and with *no* sewing experience (when someone suggested he change the bobbin, he replied "what's a bobbin?"), he started with a Moda kit from the shop, added his own touches (it originally didn't have a border), and - with some instruction from our very own Arin Hill, he began cutting and sewing!
He's quilted his way into a small cult following (some of our regulars often ask, "has he quilted anything else yet?") and we're hopeful that he's going to start another project soon!
The lesson here? ANYONE can do it! You don't need to know how to quilt, or even sew. We'd love to teach you! As we tell our friends... "If Will can do it, so can you!"
Happy quilting - see you at the shop soon!
