From Our Editors
Kennette Blotzer, owner of Something to Crow About, has created a quilter’s haven in her store’s expanded space, characterized by its original brick and wood-plank flooring. More than 3,000 bolts of fabric spark inspiration with a range of designs, from seasonal prints to careful reproductions of patterns from the Civil War and the 1930s. The shop stays true to its name by specializing in chicken and rooster fabrics, which congenial employees can help sort through while advising on individual projects.
The Block of the Month projects guide quilters through long-term projects of 6 or 12 months by proffering patterns and supplies needed for creating quilts one step at a time. The shop further generates community by serving as a certified venue for company trust-fall activities and by hosting events that include sewing-club meetings as well as diverse quilting and rug-hooking classes.
