I would like to introduce myself and our business. My name is Patty Stringer, owner, and operator of Homemade Quilts n More. I have been doing some type of sewing for most of my life along with working as a salesperson, accountant, clerk, secretary (Administrative Assistant), and most currently a Reliability Engineer.
Always in the back of my mind, I wanted to open a shop to share my love and enthusiasm for fabric. About 2005 my dear husband and I purchased our first longarm quilting machine. A Gammill Optimum with Statler Stitcher, on a 12-foot quilt table. As you can only imagine that was when the wheels went into motion developing a plan to create some type of quilting/fabric shop.
At first, we started just doing longarm quilting for individuals as a side job. This was very satisfying but of course, then you want more. So in the Spring of 2010, my dear husband and I started going to classes to learn more about the business end of things. Then we found a wonderful location. We have opened Homemade Quilts n More in beautiful, historical downtime Grand Cane, Louisiana.
Six years of learning, questioning, and making sure everything is just right, then we took the leap.
Homemade Quilts n More is a comfortable, creative place for people to gather, learn, and share.
Quilting threads will keep us together.
