Shop Story: Quilters Cupboard (Ontario, Canada)Posted on September 6th, 2011 Teresa 1 commentTweet
At FabShop’s Spring Market Kickoff Dinner in Salt Lake City, Quilters Cupboard in Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada was given the Star Shop award. Sue Carmichael owns the shop and believes that visiting Quilters Cupboard should be like coming home to an old friend’s house. Her shop’s motto is “Fun, Friends, Food and, oh yes, Fabric!” and it shows in everything she does.
Her monthly PMS (Potluck, Munching and Sewing) days and playful promotions (s’mores served alongside a display of camping fabrics, for example) keep customers feeling at ease in her shop, but the real draw for many are the gatherings. Carmichael offers several quilting clubs–the most popular is Square-in-a- Square. “It creates a very different atmosphere than just offering classes,” says Carmichael. “The quilters see each other every two weeks or once a month for nine months or more. They really get to know each other and build friendships.”

Hi, I am looking for a fabric by Robert Kaufman, designed by Terri Conrad Designs. I think it’s called the Giving Garden…. it has a bright blue background with cherries hanging from a cherry tree with blossoms. If you have any would you please give me an answer back either by email or phone
(916-354-0970) I am desperate to find this. I appreciate your help. I would like five (5) yards if you have any.
Thank you so much.
