Last week, Keepsake Quilting had the pleasure of welcoming a trio of special customers from across the country. Genevia, Lee Ann and Terry came all the way from Texas! We were surprised and honored to hear their story.
Genevia recently retired from Texas Trust Bank, and when they asked what she would like as a retirement gift, she had a fabulous idea. Rather than receive a piece of jewelry or other commemorative item, she asked that they fly her here to New Hampshire so she could visit our store! She has traveled plenty over the years, but had never made it here—and thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so. Texas Trust Bank not only flew her here, but were generous enough to include lodging and more!
Genevia, Lee Ann and Terry’s visit started at the Keepsake Quilting shop, where they were amazed at our fabric selection and how much we keep in stock. Their visit continued at our distribution center, which houses our call center, catalog and web design, cutting room and more. They were impressed that we do everything within the company, within walking distance of each other! Then they went to our cutting room, where they spoke with employees and were surprised to learn that it is all done by hand and not animated or precut. They wrapped up their visit with lunch with our shop manager Deb, and had great conversation about quilting and how they hope to return to visit in the future.
Thanks so much for visiting ladies, we hope your trip was full of wonderful memories!
