MEET OUR STAFF
Lou Ann: happily announces that she has the prettiest job in town. She takes pride in our fat quarter display and finds delight in helping customers find the sweetest blend of colors for newly-planned quilts, or those almost finished projects. If she could select any pattern in the store, it would be for the purse called Designer Diva because “it is so cute for women of all ages.” Next time you’re in, have her show you some new color combinations.
Leigh: is a lively gal who, “loves to hand quilt with all our amazingly gorgeous fabrics-especially some of the unique Alaska batiks.” She brings many years of sewing experience and oodles of talent to questions about planning, stitching, and quilting. She prefers piecework and may even be planning a new quilt for our exclusive raven batiks designed by Cindy Shake-local artist.
Barb: is the newest part of our sales trio. Her favorite part of working in the store is the inspiration that comes when she and a customer surprisingly blend fabrics for a project. “Sometimes they are so beautiful; a tear comes to my eye.” She takes special care of customer requests and shares interesting resources with them. She eagerly states that she has found the perfect job. Her endless patience with customers makes her a valuable resource. Stop by and have her help you with your knottiest quilting question.
