Driven by her grandmother’s love for quilting and her father’s entrepreneurial spirit, founder Cristen Jones’s 1994 start-up has expanded to include Quilt Sampler’s current inventory of 5,000 bolts of fabric, Pfaff and Bernina sewing machines, and small-group sewing classes. Guided by instruction from Quilt Samplers’s knowledgeable instructors, both new students and returning old hands learn proper seam allowances, pinning methods, and machine threading to engineer an accessories bag in the three-hour Learn to Sew—Zippy Strippy course. Quilt Sampler equips each student with a supply kit and a sewing machine on which fabric, thread, and dropped beef jerky bind together.
