I am the owner of the Oregon Trail Quilt Co. and working hard to get everything ready for our upcoming Grand Opening, hopefully in February, 2011 in Medford, Oregon. We are moving a previously established quilt shop to this new location with a fresh start, completely new look, new product lines, and a whole new theme.
Start making your lists for what you want in a quilt shop and any special items that you would like for us to carry. I am open to suggestions! I have owned 2 shops already, and cannot wait to open this one. We are all about excellent customer service! There will be new classes, new instructors, and new ideas. We are not limited to quilting, but also will have a lot of other sewing project ideas to share with you.
Our fabrics are all from the high quality companies that you know and love such as Alexander Henry, Michael Miller, Blank, Island Batiks, Bali, Moda, RJR, Batik Textiles, P & B, Marcus, Benartex, Northcott, South Sea Imports, and many more! We have many great notions, patterns, and books also!
The date and exact location will be announced very soon! There is a lot of prep work, so my blog will keep you updated on where we are with that, then continue as the shop is up and running.
To date, I am preparing to close the current location and getting everything ready for a great moving sale! This will be posted here and on CraigsList. New items are being ordered for the opening, the new color scheme is selected, and the logo is at the print shop. As soon as the papers are signed, the location will be announced.
Medford lost its only quilt shop last year (there are still a few retail fabric shops, and some nearby towns have quilt shops). BUT, as we know, Medford needs a small, friendly, knowledgeable quilt shop here again! Well, get ready, because we'll be opening soon! Get your project ideas lined up and make your shopping lists!
More will be posted as we progress, at least every couple days!
Thanks for looking!
