Canton Village Quilt Works - Giveaway!


My friend and sponsor Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works is sharing her quilting story and giving away fabric from her shop!  Enjoy --

-----
Hi my name is Jackie and I am the owner of Canton Village Quilt Works. My quilting career really started back in 6th grade (long ago) in Home Economics. I made a patchwork pillow, which I still have, but that was the extent of the quilting. At that time, I loved to make clothing. But no longer do, because I totally and passionately love quilting.

I got back into quilting about 17 years ago, just before our first child was born. I began to make baby clothes and my hubby suggested that I try something different. Well, his exact words were... “Since you are going to be a stay at home mom, you should really get a hobby to keep you busy.” Well, a big question mark appeared above my head, “Gee won’t the baby keep me busy????”

Anyway, I did go and take my first quilting class and did not immediately fall in love. But after the second one I was hooked. Eventually, when both kids were in school full time,  I started my long arm quilting business in the year 2000. So, wow, 10 years ago! Hubby being skeptical and thinking that myself and his sister were the only ones in the universe who quilted, wondered out loud, “how long will this business last”. I think now my husband has been enlightened.

In the fall of 2008, at Quilt Market, I invested in the AccuQuilt Studio Cutter.  It has helped me tremendously in becoming more efficient. More recently, it has allowed me to sell accurately die cut fabric to my customers.  I first started to sell my die cuts through Etsy and was successful at doing so.  When I went to quilt market in the fall of 2009, the plan was to invest in fabric to sell yardage and die cuts. I then opened a full-fledged online quilting shop!!

I stock Westminster Fabrics (Kaffe, Brandon, Philip, and Martha), Robert Kaufman (Kona Cottons, and Essex Linen/Cotton Blends), Marcus Brothers (Aunt Grace Repros), Izzy and Ivy Designs Patterns, and Die Cuts, Pre-cuts, and Bundles, and Quilt Kits.  This has been a wonderful addition to my long arm quilting business. I continue to quilt customers quilt tops and offer edge to edge quilting, semi custom, and custom quilting. I love doing this and will never give this up. My customers are a constant source of inspiration. I wanted to give back to my customers and now have a Frequent Quilter Club Card which they use to receive discounts on Edge To Edge Quilting.

I want to thank Amy for offering me this opportunity for you to get to know me a little better. And to thank all of you who come to visit me on my blog and listen to my ramblings.

So onto a wonderful giveaway!
Here is what you need to do:
1.  Comment on Amy’s post here.

3. Go to my blog and sign up for e-mailings for Special Discounts and Happenings At Our Online Fabric Shop. Then come back and tell Amy.
4.  Visit my online shop and come back and tell Amy which is your favorite product.

Jackie
