Intriguing Project Idea at Hattie's

The atmosphere at Hattie’s is laid-back, warm, and friendly. Comfortable stools line the front of the cutting counter and encourage visitors to sit and chat. So that’s what we did.

The Wonderful Wizards who conjured up this quilting magic are owners Phil and Cathy. Hattie’s is named for Cathy’s grandmother, an accomplished seamstress and inspiration to her granddaughter.

As their shop grew, Tami came on board. She started out taking a quilting class at Hattie’s, and rapidly became immersed in quilting. In addition to serving customers, Tami designs and produces quilt kits and creates shop displays.

It’s easy to see that Phil, Cathy, and Tami love fabric and quilting. More than that, they love meeting and helping people. Phil has an easy-going manner and the soul of a storyteller when he talks about the people who visit the shop.

Cathy glows with pride when she discusses the accomplishments of their customers, who quickly become their friends.

Customer Anna - smallWhile we were visiting, Anna came in for fabric to complete her current quilting project. With a smile, she told us that she liked coming to Hattie’s “because it’s close to home and because of all the neat things to look at”. She continued to talk about how friendly and helpful they are. “It’s just nice,” she said.

Those “neat things to look at” include exciting new arrivals such as Kaffe Fassett’s latest fabrics from Westminster/Rowan and eye-catching Australian aboriginal designs. While Hattie’s has a little bit of everything, they stock an extensive collection of colorful modern and contemporary styles.

If you’re looking for quilting fun, quilting friends, new quilting ideas, and quilting inspiration, Hattie’s Quilt Shop is well worth the trip. See you there!
