The Quilted Bear in Ladner, BC …….I remember when this store opened….. I lived in Ladner when I first came to Canada and The Quilted Bear was just up the street from where I worked. Needless to say you can imagine how often I was there! The store has had a couple of owners since it opened many years ago. The current owner, Carol, recently refurbished and renovated the store and it looks simply wonderful now……you might like to pop in to browse if you are in the vicinity? See store website for contact details.
I was unfortunately unable to be present for the Grand re-opening of the store after the renovations. However, a week later we held a Quilting workshop for customers to celebrate Carol’s great new look for her store. The customers were able to make a Valentine’s mug rug as they learned about what our Janome machines can do. We focused on how our Janome embroidery machines actually DO the machine quilting for us and how we can add applique-in-the-hoop to our quilted projects …..easy, less time consuming and SEW much fun!
It seemed like everyone had a lot of fun making their Valentine’s mug rug.
Congratulations to Carol on her lovely newly refurbished store. Check out the store website for more information.
