Big Announcement!

Big Announcement!

Your Attention, Please!
After 22 years of laughter, friendship, fun (and a few tears), Janice Cooper is retiring. Janice started the shop more than 22 years ago with Charlotte Harkey. As you may know, these amazing ladies met at a quilt show in Myrtle Beach in 1996. After talking for a while and sharing their mutual love of quilting, they decided they should open a quilt shop in the Charlotte area. And we're all so lucky that instead of just talking about it - they actually did it!

Charlotte retired last year and now Janice is passing the proverbial quilt needle of ownership to Bryan Gregory, Barbara Greene and Cristie Kiser (Charlotte Harkey's stepdaughter). Bryan does our quilting, Barbara handles our finances, and Cristie works behind the scenes on computer and legal stuff. Deborah is our Shop Manager and Sally, Peggy, Florence, Linda, and Penny make up our friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Janice is looking forward to spending more time working with her church on various volunteer activities. And we hope to see her often here in the shop!
