I may have mentioned in an earlier post that my word for the year is “ACTUALIZE”. I wanted something that would inspire me to do the things I really want to do and not procrastinate. Life is short, make the most of it.
Back in 1995 I started quilting, I think the seed was planted then that I wanted to own a quilt shop and share my new passion with everyone I came in touch with. A few years later while taking a workshop from Mary Lou Weidman she asked each of us what our favorite part of quilting was; I replied sharing what I know with other quilters. Time Warp to 2011 I became a certified instructor for Judy Niemeyer Quilting aka Quiltworx and I have had a blast. Traveling around Texas and even outside of Texas to teach and vend at shows has been so much fun; but I want to be more productive in my own community.
As you recall in 2014 we made the BIG move to the SMALL town of Luling, TX. There is just something about this town that calls upon me to make an impact! While we are not residents of Luling; we live just past the county line; I consider Luling my new hometown!
So begins the next chapter, and I am so excited about it! I have found a perfect little building right on the main drag. The owners have just completed a fabulous renovation and I must say it is full of charm and excitement. I can’t wait to share the inside with you – but for now you will have to whet your appetite with a few photos of the outside and the town.
For you to really appreciate the work that has been done I will start with a before photo from google.
Stay tuned as I will be sharing photos from the inside soon. You will also get a sneak peek at the fabrics that will be lining our shelves!
Looking forward to seeing you all VERY SOON!
I am anxious to see the inside. A group of us are planning a trip to see it in person after you open. Good luck
I am under the very hopeful impression that “if I build it – they will come!” I will see you all at the Lakeview Show the weekend before the grand opening! Good thing my hair is already grey!
how exciting. I am very happy for you! you are a stinker, you didn’t mention anything when I saw you in December!
In December I had NO IDEA!!! This has all happened very quickly!
wow! so what is your target date to open?
Grand Opening Celebration is May 17-21
