Quilted Joy Grand Opening Celebration

Thank you to everyone that made our Grand Opening Celebration a HUGE success!

Our recent grand opening was a day filled with genuine warmth and joy, as we welcomed so many of our quilting friends into our new space. Seeing the shop come to life with many familiar faces, and the buzz of new connections being made, was deeply touching. The laughter, the stories of projects past and plans for future creations, and the supportive nods of understanding about this art that we so love—it all created an atmosphere of family and friendship. Each person who walked through the doors wasn’t just a guest but a cherished member of our community, contributing to a day we will remember with fondness for many years to come. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our grand opening truly grand ❤️

Angela gave a Looky Loo Shop Tour with special guests Sara Gallegos & Bethanne Nemesh!

A huge shoutout to Sara Gallegos, co-host of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, and the renowned Bethanne Nemesh for their amazing appearances. We’re incredibly grateful! Explore all the nooks and crannies of our quilting paradise, and see what has our community buzzing with excitement. Join the celebration and let the creativity flow!

  5. Congratulations Angela and the whole QJ team! Wishing I had the space for a longarm (a girl can dream) but I did get a new computerized sewing machine (never had one of those before!) from my wonderful hubby last month. We’re in Ohio so I’m hoping to get down there to see your new store.

  6. Congratulations Angela!
    I’ve been a huge fan of yours ever since I took a class from you in Springfield IL. You have a way of teaching free motion quilting that makes great results achievable.

  7. Wish I could be there today to celebrate with you. We’ll meet one of these days I’m sure, but in the meantime, Congrats on the new digs. Put yourself down for a good hot soak tonight! I’m betting you’re
    going to need it after the flurry of the past few weeks.

  11. CONGRATULATIONS!!! It’s looks like y’all had SEW much fun! I’m about 3.5 hours away and I can’t wait to come visit to see your amazing shop & check out the APQS machines! I’ve totally decided that as soon as I’m able to afford (& can find the space) I really want an APQS… They appear to be the best machines in the market. I’m so happy for you, keep up the great work.
