Every quilter has a masterpiece inside.

My name is Belinda and I am the daughter of George and Jane who are the Cherry Pit shop owners (well, truth be told - mom is the owner and dad is the secretary).

AND this is the first post for the Cherry Pit. Don't worry, mom (Jane) will be writing the posts after this one.

Every quilter has a masterpiece inside. This quote is about mom. She is the shop owner of the Cherry Pit but so much more. She is the person who will say in her great southern drawl 'How are you today? How can we help you?' as soon as you walk through the shop doors. She is the person who will help you chose just the right colors for your daughter's baby quilt or help you pick out the right kit that will lead you on your path to begin quilting. She is the person who knows her customers by name and remembers them when they visit the shop. Her masterpiece is the Cherry Pit.

Inside the store, you will find her designs, walls of fabric, and most impressively an incredible group of women whose talents are beyond words. You should see what they create. The quilt colors parade across the 1930's red brick walls of the shop. Every corner has a project - you might find a purse, an apron, a baby quilt, a pillowcase or a dress. Someone is always cutting yards or fat quarters - someone is always putting together kits or preparing the mail outs - someone is always sewing or piecing or talking about sewing and piecing.

If you want to learn to quilt or have years of experience, you will feel at home at the Cherry Pit. Enjoy the day! Happy Quilting!


  1. So glad you've started a blog! I'd be lost without mine. :0)

    I live in Sevier County now. I've purchased fabric from you a few times since I moved here. But I really had not inquired about classes.

    Do you teach any "Thread Painting" classes?

    Thanks so can leave a comment here for me or you can come to my blog and leave me a comment.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie ♥

  2. Stephanie - Talked to mom and she said they don't teach any 'thread painting' classes BUT thanks for asking and come visit soon! We hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and choose to share this blog with your friends! Belinda, the quilter's daughter

  3. Hi Belinda,

    Thanks for checking on the class for me. I'll keep looking for those type of classes and I'll be back soon to look at the new fabrics.

    Oh, and if you will go into your design area of your blog you can "add a gadget" to your sidebar for a "followers" list. I believe it's the second widget on that page that pops up.

    If you add this then I can follow your blog and other bloggers that I send to your blog can start following you. It's really a great way to build a network.

    Have a wonderful Day,
    Stephanie ♥

  4. Thanks - I'll go into the sidebar right now! I appreciate the note! Enjoy your day - Belinda
