Boot Camp



In March I will be traveling to the state where everything is bigger (including their quilt shops) to attend the Boot Camp for shop owners hosted by Deb Luttrell. Take a look at their website http://www.stitchinheaven.com/ and tell us what you think! Texas is a long way away but I'm so excited! There will be a lot to learn and a lot of information to bring back and put into action. Hopefully this will make your experience at Quilter's Refuge all the more exciting and fulfilling.

Our First Adventure

Hello! Here I am, my first ever post in our blog. I am excited and hope you are too. Let me tell you a little about ourselves.
We are a quilt shop in Decatur, Alabama and have been in business for nearly five years. Gina Decker is the owner, avid quilter, and lover of fabric. She also has a weakness for patterns (which I know some of us can relate to!) We have 8 part-time employees, two of which are Gina's daughters, Bonnie (me!) and Sarah. We carry everything you need to begin and finish a quilt, from 100% cotton fabric, notions, books, patterns, wool, flannel, and batting. We also always have lots of advice, help, and opinions in stock.
Our new website is up and running http://www.quiltersrefuge.com , so come and visit. Or, if you're in the area, swing by the shop. We will be waiting with a warm welcome, helpful advice, and of course, lots and lots of gorgeous fabric to drool over. :)

I'll talk to you all again soon. I hope we can become great friends and I look forward to hearing all of your thoughts, opinions, feelings, and suggestions!
