..to find items for my shop. I'm planning to sell wool for appliqué in the shop, I know of no other quilt shop in this province that carries it and I know it would be a big hit. Now there is a rug hooking shop about 20 minutes so that's where I've bought my wool over the past couple of years.
I think what they carry is called Dorr Wool. I don't know much about purchasing wool to sell, what brand I should or should not look for, etc. So, I would love to get some feedback on this if you have an opinion!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
