A message from Barb:
My dad was a great supporter of us and of Quilt Corral. When Carol and I bought the store in 2016 he wanted to be the first person to buy something from us. He came in and looked around but didn't have much use for thread or fabric so he asked if he could buy a windsock to hang on his barn. A lifelong entrepreneur, he was interested in hearing about our business successes. He enjoyed seeing shop samples that we made and some of you may recall he and my mother often stopped in at our retreats to have lunch with us. He really loved visiting all the happy sewers and seeing their projects hanging on the walls at those retreats. This picture is from Quilt Rush 2021 when my parents stopped in to say hi.
