K&A Quilt Studio has a relatively short history. It’s located in the former office/cafeteria space of an industrial enterprise. When the building was purchased by a company owned by Kate and her husband Roger, this space became redundant for the new company, and remained unoccupied for a few years. Kate had often thought that the bright, attractive office area should be put to a better (preferably quilting-related!) use, and in April 2018 K&A Quilt Studio opened its doors as a space for quilters to gather and learn.
Kate and Ann are best friends who love to laugh, shop, and quilt! Both came to this endeavour from a business background and love the new opportunities for creativity and community our Studio programs offer. However, it was no doubt inevitable that our passion for fabric shopping would ultimately find expression in having a retail shop of our own. And so, January 2019 marked a new phase in the life of the Studio – a 1500 sq. ft. retail store located right across the hall!
We love connecting with fellow quilters and seeing first-hand their wonderful talents and creativity. In addition to helping you find the perfect fabrics and supplies for your projects, we will continue to offer classes, clubs, and workshops for all skill levels, and hope to introduce a new generation to quilting.
We adore our customers – quilters are among the best people you could hope to know. We hope you will find K&A Quilt Studio an inspiring and happy place to shop – a place where you will always feel welcome and be greeted warmly.
We also like to have fun, so don’t be surprised to find there’s always something worth checking out at K&A. Our door is open and we look forward to welcoming you, offering you assistance when we can, and perhaps sharing a silly laugh or two.
Kate and Ann
