So That's What's Been Keeping Her Busy!

A couple of weeks ago Best Friends Quilt Shoppe underwent a huge renovation and expansion. This involved knocking down a wall, painting, putting in new floors, moving all the inventory off-site and then back in... total deconstruction in order to create. Going from 2200 square feet to 5500 square feet is a lot of work.

Although Momcat is employed there only part-time, everyone helped as much as possible to make this a success and rejoiced at the grand re-opening. Here's a peek at how it looks now.

This is the view from the front door. The bed is on loan from the furniture store. Look at those floors shine!

Still from the front door, looking to the right.

Half of the classroom, with a student using the space to finish up her quilt top.

Looking down the wall at samples, with associated fabrics beneath the samples on the shelves.

Jan, the owner, has much more planned. More fixtures and more inventory to fill up this glorious space. More kits ready for purchase rather than being special orders. More options through the webstore and everything in general to be not only the biggest, best place in Cincinnati to shop for brights, batiks and blenders, but the best spot on the web as well.

If you're ever in Cincinnati, please stop in and say "hi" to Momcat (Linda). She'd love to cut some yardage for you or show off the store samples to inspire your own creativity.

Piecefully yours,
