We cannot allow any photography of the quilts without our permission.

In December, we had a fabulous Meet-and-Greet and Trunk Show with Pam McGinnis, aka Pam Kitty Morning. She visited with us to unveil her new line of fabric, Pam Kitty Picnic and she brought some of her beautiful quilts.


We had a very special visitor, Mr. Moda, Mark Dunn. He visited the store and loved our fabrics and decor.



We are thrilled to offer our customers high quality classes with top-notch instructors. Please look through our instructor's bios and see who they are.

Mary Berthiaume
Mary has been sewing most of her life but she has been quilting since August of 2000 because one of her daughters bought a beautiful mountain home in Colorado and said to her, "Mom, my new home would look great with lots of Quilts in it, do you know how to quilt???"  Well, with help of a friend, she made her first quilt which was a King Sized Double Wedding Ring for her daughter and she had so much fun doing it, that Mary was then hooked on quilting for life. In the six years since then, Mary has made over 150 quilts of all sizes and now every one in her family has at least several in their homes. Mary has given lots of them away, but now she makes more challenging quilts and keeps them for herself. Her kids can have them much later.

Debbie Thornton
Debbie has been quilting for over three decades and is the owner of Prairie Queens Quilt Shop. Her expertise in color and design makes her the owner of a quilt shop as well as an instructor. Debbie is also a master on the store's long-arm and her award-winning quilts have been seen at a variety of local quilt shows.

Beth Upstill
Beth started sewing as a kid with her Grandmother. Her mom got her started quilting about 13 years ago.
