Behind the Scenes

There’s a lot going on behind the scenes at Keepsake Quilting! Fabric cutting, kit-making, customer service, packing and shipping, not to mention the fun we have working together. We celebrate holidays together, dress up for Halloween,  socialize with paint parties, and  put together contests and photo booths for our customers. Come up to New Hampshire and see us sometime!
