I am not The Quilt Merchant

Friday we sold the store to Valarie Langue. I am very excited to see all the wonderful new things she will bring to the store. I will be around for a while to help her get adjusted to her new life, in case you don't already know she is moving here from France! Please stop in and introduce yourself, I'm sure you will love her. She is a very talented quilter and will offer longarm services.Thank you all so much for all the wonderful memories. Jim, Buddy and i will never forget the last seven years. Eliza has grown up in the store and now will have a baby sister next month.Beth has found many new talents and gifts, what a blessing to have worked with her for seven years! Now I guess I will learn how to really quilt!!!!!
