Well, we are finally here!
The Common Threads Quilt Shoppe officially opened its doors on December 10,
2009. This is the culmination of a dream, which has been patiently waiting in
the dark recesses of my heart for many years. Finally, the time was right for
me to jump into the water and bring my dreams into reality.
My purpose is to preserve the art and tradition of quilting for new
generations. There is a rich heritage of quilting which is a part of every
culture...a Common Thread which unites us all.
I have tried to create a space that is welcoming and comfortable, where
folks can gather to share coffee, ideas, and the love of quilting. I hope you
will stop by soon to share a cup with me.

I would like to thank some special people who have encouraged and supported
me along this journey.
First and foremost, my husband, Roy, who never once laughed at my ideas and
who has been by my side each step of the way.
Thanks to Gannon University’s Small Business Development Center and Barbara
Niebauer for all of the time and encouragement that you have given me. Your
input has been invaluable to me.
To my friends, who have given me the gift of their time, their suggestions,
and allowed me the unceasing bending of their ears. I am eternally grateful for
all of you and hope to make you proud.
