Memories of Visiting the KQ Shop

Kathie at the KQ Shop, 1998

Here’s an excerpt of a lovely letter we received from a customer, with some photos of Kathie, who worked at the retail shop back in 1998:

Dear Management,

Some years ago, my husband and I visited our son and family in Connecticut for a truly lovely holiday.

One of the highlights was my visit to “Keepsake.” I have been a patcher for 25 yrs and my visit to you is still as fresh as ever.

On entering we were greeted by a lovely young lady who said, “my name is Kathy and if I can help you just ask.” It was like being greeted with a friend.

My husband was given permission to take photos and as you can see enclosed we took home with us the memory of a lovely day and would love it if you could pass the photos on to a lady remembered with pleasure.

Kathie began working at the quilt shop 14 years ago, shortly before Nora came to visit. Since that time, Kathie has been promoted to our cutting-room supervisor. We captured her at work in the cutting room this week while she was preparing fabrics for a Bali email special. Rosemary, our fabric expert in merchandising, gives her “cut sheets” or fabric samples that show which fabrics to select and how much to cut for kits, Medleys of the Month, and Blocks of the Month.

To find out about the Bali special and our other great deals and announcements, sign up for our emails on our homepage.
