About Us

Terry's Thoughts and Threads will give you updates on my book publishing; events and special promotions of Quilters' Quarters will also be shared here.

Quilters' Quarters is a new division of Terry's Thoughts and Threads, featuring a fabric and notions store and quilting advice and assistance.

How We Got Started

I and others have long missed our local Cressy's Store, lost to the economy several years ago. I wanted to open a fabric and notions shop to facilitate the efforts of local quilters in finding materials to continue making beautiful quilts and more. We have made space within Wooden Toy and Gift .

Our Ideal Customer

Anyone interested in learning to sew, or learning to machine-quilt, ages 6 and up, is our ideal customer. Experienced quilters will also enjoy the selection of fabrics, notions, threads and more. Vintage Sewing machine buffs will also learn maintenance of their machines, and find the requisite oil here at Quilters' Quarters.
