Hi there! I’m Jen, owner and operator of The Country Quilt Shop. If you’ve shopped on our website, you received a thank you card (and a free gift!) so you may know me by now. For those who have not, I appreciate you taking the time to visit the site and read this first blog entry. A little about me:
Quilting is a hobby I am passionate about. Shopping too! So about 18 months ago I decided to marry the two and launch the online quilt shop where this blog lives. Turns out, I am just as passionate about building a small business. I love spending my days working on the site, shopping for fabrics, novelty patterns, jelly rolls, charm packs and other precuts. Plus reaching out to quilt guilds across the country and chatting with you all on social media. It is the best job, at least I think so. Better than anything I have done in the past.
Now, 18+ months in and a lot of new knowledge and skills learned, my husband Gene has joined the shop to help me provide the best shopping experience for you, focusing mainly on the website. We know you have a ton of options out there to buy fabric. But we are confident we can offer something more. Our goal is to provide you with the best shopping experience and the best customer service.
We will also be bringing you the latest fabrics by designers like Michael Miller, Riley Blake and Paintbrush Studios, fresh new quilting ideas and patterns that you can combine with the products we sell to make your very own unique creations. And, be on the lookout for interviews with some of the fabric designers featured in the shop. I have a long term goal of designing my own fabric line, and I am fascinated by all that goes into it. Perhaps one day I will see your design with my fabric. What a thought!
And to close, a personal note of appreciation. Whether you’ve purchased or not, thank you for visiting The Country Quilt Shop. And thank you for giving us an opportunity to earn your business!
Jen & Gene
