• Fall in Keepsake Quilting Country

      The trees are turning spectacular shades of orange, red and yellow. Moulton Farm’s field and farm stand is filled with pumpkins. Weekends are spent apple picking at local orchards or going to the fairs. Columbus weekend in Keepsake Quilting country means the Sandwich Fair. A local autumn tradition since 1910, the Sandwich Fair used to be just on Columbus Day, now it’s a three-day event. There’s so much to see and do at the fair. There are the animals, the parade, the rides, the tractor pulls, the entertainment, the food and the crafts, both for sale and on display. We’re proud to say that, over the years, many a…

  • All Through the House

    “I saw it across the floor at Quilt Market and felt like running to it. I knew it would be perfect for our customers!” That’s what Cheryl, our buyer, said happened when she first spotted the All Through the House quilt that’s now featured on the cover of our Holiday 2018 catalog. When the quilt arrived in the office for photography, the staff fell in love with this wonderful quilt, too. It looked so clean and fresh in solids. Roxie and Joe Wood of ThimbleCreek designed that cover quilt. Cheryl loved their style so much that she chose two of their other designs for our fall and holiday catalogs. Anyone…

Well we got our answer last Thursday, the 23rd, when customers were lined up in the warehouse parking lot waiting to see what goodies we had in store underneath three big tents. One tent was all fabric. We took all the skinny bolts of fabric from the warehouse, pulled out the cardboard centers, and laid the fabric on the tables. There was no cutting of yardage. The fabric was purchased as is. But not all the fabric…

  • A Quilt to Crow About

    We’ve got a quilt to crow about. We liked it so much that we put it on the cover of our fall catalog. Cheryl, our amazing buyer, has a knack for knowing just what quilts our Keepsake Quilting customers will love. She’s been choosing our products for years and deciding the one quilt that will go on the cover.  See it here It’s always a big day when Evelyn, our photographer, and Patty, our stylist, go on location to photograph the cover quilt. They knew the perfect location for the “And So It Crows” quilt, this fall’s cover quilt. They loaded up Patty’s car with camera equipment, props and the…

    Mary and Gloria As the kids start thinking about going back to school, we’ve got school on our minds, too. We’re talking quilt school where there are no tests and no grades, and every class is sure to be fun.

The second Tuesday of the month will be Table-Setting Tuesday, with projects such…
