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.
