This week we are spotlighting our dealer, Emma's Quilt Cupboard & Sewing Center in Franklin, MA! Owner, Cyndi Rich, shares more about her shop:
Emma's has been in business for 12 years. She started as a quilt shop and added sewing machines 4 years after opening her doors. "I'm definitely a quilt shop that sells machines as opposed to a sewing machine dealer who sells fabrics. We have a well rounded selection along the lines of "Shabby Chic", along with many of the more traditional categories. We do lots of classes, events, fun stuff, charitable activities, block of the months, shop hops and lot of other things in our community."
"I love the challenge of bringing it all together to make sure my shop is one of the best in the region. I love developing new ideas and helping them come to fruition. I'm a mentor to several smaller quilt shops, and I love helping them to be successful. I absolutely love getting inexperienced quilters excited about learning how to quilt and seeing their sense of accomplishment when they make their first quilt.
"HoopSisters is great because it truly helps sewers become more familiar with their embroidery machines. Nothing disappoints me more than when a customers buys an embroidery machine and then hardly uses it because they are afraid! HoopSisters is a Zen experience. It helps my customers become one with their machine! They learn how to trouble shoot problems, build their confidence and create beautiful pieces."
