About Us

We are Diane & Susan, mother & daughter. We started The Quilter's Garden in May 2002 with 75 bolts of fabric and a dream—were there other quilters in our small town? To our relief, the response was a resounding YES!

Our shop is full of beautiful fabrics, notions, and everything to make something gorgeous for your home, or a special gift for a friend or loved one. Above all, though, we're here for those who love to quilt, those who haven't tried it yet, and even those who just wanted to come in out of the rain. One of our teachers, interestingly enough, is a woman who showed up on our doorstep one rainy afternoon a couple of years ago. She'd never quilted in her life prior to that day. We're glad she stopped in!

The Quilter's Garden is the backbone of the Duvall's Annual Outdoor Quilt Show. We will be hitting our 9th year next September.

One of the biggest highlights of the year is the Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop in June. We have participated in this for the past seven years. Not only is our shop hop the largest in the world, we even have travelers from all over the U.S who return year after year to see the shops, collect their bocks and purchase some unique fabrics! The Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop commissions a special limited edition theme fabric by In The Beginning Fabrics and coordinating fabric designed by Clothworks each year. These fabrics typically do not go to any shop that is not participating in Shop Hop. Quilters of all levels drive from shop to shop to pick up the instructions for quilt squares and three pieces of fabric to make the coordinating block sampler quilt. It's all free, too! We work weeks in advance to get ready for a frantic five days of excitement and fun! Our shop is flooded with eager Shop Hoppers picking up that free block. The memories are cherished by all who participate.

Our store is a relaxing haven full of laughter, conversation and (typically), the hum of a sewing machine. We'll see you in the shop, and thanks for visiting with us!

Nobody Knows It But Me
There's a place I travel when I want to roam,
and nobody knows it but me
The roads don't go there and the signs stay home,
and nobody knows it but me.
It's far, far away and way, way afar,
it's over the moon and the sea
And wherever you're going that's wherever you are,
and nobody knows it but me.

Hello - I am Cheryl - the webmaster of The Quilter's Garden. I have been working with Diane & Susan for the past six years. This has been a great experience to be involved in a quilt store - which is my passion. I try to quilt as time allows, which some months just is not enough! I spend most Saturdays in the shop assisting Diane.

Please share with us what you like / dislike about our website. We are also interested in what you would like to see in the store, classes, etc.

I look forward to helping you in the shop.
