Hey Girlfriends! Kris here!
I get asked all the time, why I decided to start My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe. To be honest, there were lots of reasons, but I think the biggest one is women like you! All my life I have loved gathering together with friends and sewing.
As many of you know, my grandmother was invited to sew days with a group of her friends. Even though she wasn’t an avid quilter, she had some fierce friends and this made all the difference for her. Rather than a quilt shop specifically, I was focused on creating a way of life that embodied those women that befriended my grandma so long ago.
The best memories that I have are laughing with friends late into the night, sewing and talking. Above all I wanted to give others that very experience. For me, there is nothing more important than a community of strong, creative women. I wanted to create a tribe of women that would have each other’s backs through thick and thin- and that’s when My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe was born.
I had my doubts at first, and have had them since. But, holding this community of women above all else has never let us down! It just goes to show… maybe those crazy, hair brained ideas you get at 3 am just aren’t that crazy after all. Since then I have learned to ask myself, “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?”
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart, to each of you! You have taught me that anything is possible when you have friends by your side! You have inspired me, supported me, and been with me through thick and thin! I hope that all of us here at Girlfriend’s can do the very same for you!
