Owner, Sheila Tucker, has always had a love for hand-made quilts and wanted to learn how to quilt for years. About 6 years ago she was given some hand cross-stitch work of her grandmothers. At that time, her grandmother was 94 years old, and she wanted to have a quilt made using these priceless pieces for each of the 5 grandchildren. Her grandmother in now 100 and still with us.
Sheila asked everyone if they knew someone who she could pay to do make these quilts for her, and with no avail she was not able to find anyone to take on the task. About 4 years ago she was talking to a couple of quilting friends, they encouraged her to make the quilts herself. They guided her to the type of sewing machine she needed to buy and told her of a lady on YouTube who was an awesome quilting instructor. So, she did just that and fell in love with quilting. Since that time, she has made over 100 quilts. A year ago, she decided she wanted to open her own quilt store and sell quilting fabrics, sewing machines, notions as well as providing quilting workshops and provide other quilting services. In early October she had the opportunity to buy several bolts of fabric and store displays from a store that was closing after 17 years. She found the perfect location for the shop in Hiawassee, GA.
