Keaton Quilts Gift-Away!

Good morning Quilty Friends!

I'm still in Arizona - heading home on Wednesday.  More to tell you on that -

But this morning I wanted to jump start your week with a fantastic gift-away!

"New York New York - It's a Wonderful Town..." (Can you hear me squawk-singing this morning?)

And now it is made even better by Justin Stafford's dream of bringing a full featured quilt shop experience to you right there in the Big Apple.

I love cheering folks on with their dreams, the bigger the better.

Signing the lease on his new space!

The dream becomes a reality!

When I asked Justin how things were going in planning this Gift-Away, he commented "It has been quite the undertaking haha from navigating commercial real estate to inputting everything into an inventory system."

And if you take a look through those windows - it's a shop with a view.  Keaton Quilts is on the 8th floor at:

150 W 28th Street  Suite 804
New York, NY 10010

Phone  646.974.1717
Email  info@keatonquilts.com

General Hours of Operation

and open late on Thursdays until 6:30pm EST

Just look at this place now!

The light.  The color.  The possibilities!

Keaton Quilts is located in the flower district, steps from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). 

It's about an 8 minute walk from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.

Nearby subway stations
The 1 at 28th St.

I think I see a puppy in a pen!

It's CEO Buster!

Justin & Buster!

Keaton Quilts is proud to provide long arm quilting services, custom quilts, quilt repair, machine/classroom time rental and more!

Did I forget to mention fabric?

Every fabric is chosen for its quality and beauty. Keaton Quilts is dedicated to providing materials that not only meet customer's expectations but exceed them. 

Each fabric is meticulously inspected to ensure it meets the highest standards, so quilters can embark on each creative journey with confidence.

And did I mention they have long arm quilting services to help you finish your quilts with perfection?

I've followed Justin on Instagram for several years and his fun posts are always encouraging and creativity building.

I'm so thrilled that he (And Buster!) are filling this void in New York City and I can't wait to make a visit myself.

I'm off to enjoy the last few days of time with my dad in Arizona.  We didn't get to do as much as we wanted - in fact we've been pretty much house-bound as he's been dealing with a really bad respiratory thing over the past week.

Never fear - he's on the mend.  And I have hexies (I've been rationing them!)

Quiltville Quote of the Day -

Today is a good day to start appreciating all the little things-
Have a wonderful Monday, everyone!

    I hope your dad feels much better before you leave. I just got my RSV shot this morning.
    Unfortunately, they didn't have the Pfizer Covit shot. So I have to keep on checking. Still working on the 7 Sisters block. Nine more to go. I need 20. After that, I'll start working on the Silk Path.
