Smile Spinners - Planting Seeds of Creativity

The Quilt Shop: Conversations in Quilt and Sewing Retail

Nov 8 2022 • 38 mins

Cathy Queitzsch and Jessica Bacon built their quilting business on a background in healthcare and the fashion industry. They wanted a space where quilters could come together and share with one another and find the newest fabrics available in central Pennsylvania.

They talk with Spencer about how they have overcome the challenges of everything from window shoppers to introducing new segments of the sewing and fashion industry. Cathy and Jessica have taken a fun and analytical approach to how they run their business. They’ll share insights into how they have differentiated their shop and reach new customers.

Smile spinners have experience helping their community of quilters to explore their motivations for creating.
