Let's talk quilts!  Look at the wonderful creations of our mother-daughter team, Carol and Wanda

Amazing machine embroidery on squares of well-made beautiful quilts.

 They embroider pictures on jeans for children,

 Also jeans, skirts and vest for ladies.

They also make beautiful throw pillows.

Carol works full-time and visits the store occasionally while Wanda spends as much time as she can  socializing with customers and fellow crafters.

Here we have the works of the amazing duo, Ruth and Irene, with all their hand-stitched quilts.

This dynamic duo also does some paintings that are hanging around the store for sale.  I will enter some of them later.

Then we have Lucienda or Lucy as we call her.  She does her quilts completely by hand,  cutting the squares, sewing them together and then quilting them.

Lucy entered many of her projects in the Welland Fair and the Wainfleet Fair and won  first place at both for one of her quilts.  She is on to the regional competition.

Leta and Lucy both entered items in the Welland Fair and won many prizes.

Leta, Lucy and Betty all entered the Wainfleet Fair and won sooooooooooooooo many prizes.  Their works were displayed in the largest window of the store and, WOW, it was full.  After a week, a smaller display was made in the store so the articles would not be sun damaged.  Here are a few pictures of the display.

Christmas decorating is done, thanks to help and creativity of Carol, Wanda and Sandra...they did an amazing job on the three store front windows!  Come by and see!!   We are now open  Friday nights until 8pm beginning Nov 2nd.

Do come and see us at 17 Clarence Street in Port Colborne.  Right now our hours are Monday, Friday and Saturday  10 am to 4 pm.

  1. Was in your store recently. Your volunteers were more that accomodating and very friendly. I truly enjoyed browsing around at all the gorgeous crafts that were displayed. Your prices are amazing and NO tax, what a bonus! One can appreciate all the work that is put into each and every craft.
