Quilters and "quilter-wannabes" of Cherokee, rejoice! You will no longer have to go out-of-town to purchase your supplies. As of Monday morning, April 2nd, a new store which should satisfy your needs has opened on East Main Street .

Quilt-N-Kaboodle is located at 109 East Main Street, the former home of The Bookseller. Kim Barrett and Ginny Bunt are renting their new shop from Denny and Donna Henrich, former owner-operators of The Bookseller.

Barrett and Bunt will have quality lines of fabric, thread, quilt kits, notions (including rulers, scissors, needles and pins), books and patterns, made-to-order quilt ladders and rack, custom-made photographic quilts and t-shirts "for that special someone" available for sale at the new store, as well as Jim Shore figurines, Christmas Tree Farm creations (burned into wood), and keepsake boxes and ornaments. Barrett and Bunt said they will gladly order any requested items which they do not currently have in stock.

The pair also plan to offer quilting lessons. The initial lessons will be for beginning quilters, and will most likely be offered on Thursday evenings. Their hope is to also offer lessons to experienced quilters in various quilting techniques.

The regular store hours for Quilt-n-Kaboodle will be 10 a.m.- 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays); and Saturday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Barrett has done long-arm quilting in her home, and will continue to offer this service in the new store.

A special feature of the new store is the availability of quilting patterns designed by Cherokee artist Marie Oman.

Quilt-n-Kaboodle opened its doors for business on April 2. In this file photo, workers are shown affixing the sign to the front of the new business.
The store opens for business at 10 o'clock this morning, Monday April 2nd. Kim and Ginny invite everyone to stop in and visit, and see what their store has to offer.
