Quilt Sampler - Fall 2011


We are pleased to announce that Vintage Threads Quilt Shoppe has been chosen as one of the 11 featured shops across the United States for the Fall 2011 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine, published by Better Homes and Garden.

Quilt Sampler, published twice a year, has been profiling North America's top quilt shops for the past 14 years. Quilt shops submit a detailed application on their history, business promotions, charitable work, teaching schedules and design philosophies. A panel of quilt experts then narrows down the applications to 10 featured shops for each issue. The team also selects an "encore" shop that was featured in a past issue to revisit. The names of the selected shops are unveiled at either the spring or fall International Quilt Market.

Competition to be included in Quilt Sampler is keen. Nearly 3,000 quilt shops are eligible to apply for this year's honor. The 11 shops chosen were photographed and interviewed by a team from Quilt Sampler, and a multi-page profile of the shop will appear in the issue, which will be available on the newsstands on September 6, 2011. Each shop also designs an original quilt for the magazine, and the full-size pattern for the quilt will appear in the issue of Quilt Sampler.

The magazine and kits for "Spice Medley" are available for purchase. Call the shop to order your kit - 563-875-7330.
