Pioneer Quilts has a new home!
A lot of tears were shed when Pioneer Quilts announced they were closing, Linda was crying when she told me several months ago and it was all I could do to keep from crying myself. It is said “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” and going they are – right into a gorgeous new location, the Broetje House, in Oak Grove. I have seen pictures that Linda showed me of the interior as well as the outside; I can’t wait to see it in person. Best of all – Pioneer Quilts will own the property, no more being at the mercy of the whims of a landlord.
Visit Pioneer Quilts’ Facebook page to see pictures of the new shop and keep up to date on when they will reopen. While there, please ‘like’ them to show your support and plan on visiting them personally as soon as they reopen. I for one and jumping with JOY!
The New Folks in Town
There is also a new shop opening in Wilsonville, wonderful news for all of those living in the southern Portland Metro area as well as those willing to take a field trip to explore new quilt shops.
The new shop Sewn Loverly is located in downtown Wilsonville across the street from Lamb’s Thriftway. They will be having an open house this Saturday September 6 and I will be there from 10 am to 1 pm with samples of my quilts for classes I will be offering there. Stop by to say hi and welcome them to our wonderful quilting community.
