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!
