Life is so much fun. Nearly 25 years ago, I quit my job at GTE Directories so that I could spend a summer with Clay who was in the 5th grade. We lived in Colleyville (DFW area) and one day decided we could live anywhere since I no longer was employed so why not live to the country. So we moved to Quitman, TX back in 1995 to raise emus. Yes, emus. Fortunately the emus never happened but Stitchin' Heaven did because I opened my little 1000 square foot quilt shop in this little town of 1895 people with 600 bolts of fabric.
I was cleaning out my desk the other day preparing to move to our newly constructed 17,500 building and came across these wonderful photos of Stitchin' Heaven past. I hope you will also enjoy seeing them and remembering these fun times!
First up: This is a picture of our original building! Who remembers when we were opening this space?
Eleanor Burns (Quilt in a Day) taught 4 different times. Here she is with our good friend Patsy Beaubouef:
Then we can't leave off remembering our Tyler location. Gosh it was a gorgeous store:
Once our new Quitman store is merchandised it will be equally beautiful! I'm hoping all can come by for a visit so we can continue to make such great friends.
Our address is 321 Richards St, Quitman, TX. Just turn by Dairy Queen - you can't miss it!
May all your days be "pieceful"
