Embroidery Baby Quilt

 Good Afternoon,

What a beautiful day we are having today.  I hope that everyone enjoyed your weekend and have been quilting on your quilts.

Carol has finished the top of her baby quilt.  She took this class with Kathy during this quarter of classes.   She chose to use pink and brown and the Kitten card.

I hope everyone is thinking about what quilt they are going to be working during this next quarter of classes.

Oh Happy Day!!

Good Morning everyone.    We hope you all are enjoying the beautiful weather outside.

Wanted to give everyone a heads up that we will be closed Wednesday, June 28th thru Wednesday, July 5th.  

If you need anything to finish up a project in the next week, make sure you come in today and stock up!

Just a glimpse of Marcia's fish quilt.  We are sure her son is really happy with it!  Something to think about while you're out fishing during the holiday week.


Here is another one for you to think about, while you are are hiking and feeding the ducks with your grandchildren or children.

Enjoy your Fourth of July week!

Brother Table Topper

Good Afternoon Quilting Land.

I am so sorry that it has been so long.  I can't believe a whole month has gone by.   If you have been into the shop you know that we have been busy.

Lots of classes have been happening and lots of quilts have been done.   Today, I have pictures of the table runner class.



I love to see the finished products, everyone has picked their own colors and fabric.  All the stitches on this table runner are done on the Brother Dream machine.

Your imagination is the limit on the things you can make.   Don't you think this would make a beautiful gift for your family at Christmas?

If you need a Dream machine come on in and see us.   :)

Choosing Your Fabric

What a busy day we have had with this Beautiful Saturday.  So many of you have been in to pick out fabric for a new project, some of you have purchased new machines, some have come in to add more fabric to an ongoing project.   What ever the reason for your visit, we are so glad you came in to brighten our day!!

 Today one of our customers came in to show her friend how fun and versatile quilting is.  Her friend is retiring sometime in the future, and is thinking of taking up quilting.

I decided to show a couple of our traditional Log Cabin quilts that are all the same pattern, but different fabric. Thought this would help you to see how we all have different likes and preferences.  
So enjoy these couple of pictures.  Also know that we have kits for some of them.  So if you haven't been in, come on in and pick up a kit.

Pilot on Board

Hi Everyone. Are you enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having?  I know we have been.  Yesterday was a huge day for someone here at the shop.

Quote of the Day:
      "First solo flight this morning! There is nothing in this world more exhilarating than flying an airplane by yourself! "

So the next time you hear a plane flying overhead... Just think it might be Walter.  We all are ready for a flight with him, but he has to have his junior license a little longer in order to let anyone fly with him.

 Wilson's can now say we have a sewing machine mechanic and pilot working here.

Sit-Down Longarm Demo Day

Good morning!!!  I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful day God has given us.

Tuesday,  May 9th we had a great turn out for the Sit-Down Longarm Demo day.  If you missed that day and would still like to have a demo, please give us a call and we can set you up with a personal demo day.

Here are some pictures from that day.

May 8th

So today was a slow day at Wilson's.  We started our new classes and everyone seemed really happy to be here.

Saturday was the last day of open house... What a great day it was.  The shop was buzzing with lots of great customers.

We all were so busy we didn't get to many pictures.
 This photo is what all our cutting tables looked like around 11:00 am.  Lots of fabric was cut for so many projects and classes.
 Julia had a great helper on Saturday. Malory decided that while her mom, Tammy, was shopping she was going to learn how to work at a quilt shop.
Malory thank you so much for all of your help.  We appreciated it more than you will ever know.

DAY 3 OF OPEN HOUSE

Day 3 has come to an end. We have been very busy and helped lots of customers with their supplies for classes.  Don't forget to stop by and pay for your class and get everything you need.

Here are a couple of pictures from the day:

Shana and Sally Brooks.

Thank you Sally for the wonderful lunch you provided for all of us.

Judy brought in her cat quilt done in Batiks.  I love cats and Batiks, what a great combination.
Awesome job Judy.

Kathy helping another customer with her class supply list.

Looking forward to seeing some more of you all tomorrow.

Open House

Good Afternoon everyone.   What a great start to Open House,  I have met some great customers.  The buzz of excitement and joy of picking out their classes, fabric and supplies is so invigorating.  

If you haven't been in yet, remember we are closed on Wednesday, but will be open bright and early Thursday morning at 9:00am.  

I just love my job here at Wilson's, I enjoy waking up in the morning to come in and see what is gonna happen that day, who I'm gonna meet, and what fabric I get to help a customer pick out.

Here is a picture of Sarah and her baby quilt she made for a friend.


I was helping Sarah pick out blues for a little boy quilt, then we changed our minds and went with yellow, brown, grey and the polka dots with cream minky on the back.  We all just love the way it turned out.  Just another great aspect of the job, customers bring back their quilts to show us.

Keep on quilting and visiting us.

Story of a Quilt





Have you ever noticed that every quilt has a story.  Here is the story of this one.  One of our great customers works with inmates that are serving a life sentence.  She is teaching them how to quilt.  What a wonderful quilt that one of the inmates has made.

 The quilting on this quilt was all done free hand.  The sewing machines they use are all old ones that have been donated to them.  I think he has done an awesome job of quilting, especially for just learning.

I love to hear stories about quilts.   So always remember to share your story and label your quilts so in the future, your story can be still told.

Minnie Quilt

Ms. Sandy and her Minnie quilt.

Such an exciting day when Ms. Sandy and her granddaughter came to visit and show us their Minnie quilt done in pinks.  The Brother Dream machine has these awesome designs included with the machine.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week for Open House.  I can not wait to try the homemade brownies and soft serve ice cream.  

We have changed the store around, so come in and see all the fantastic quilts on display.
