The owners of Quilty Pleasures welcome you.
What an honor it is for me to be serving the women of Simi Valley through fabric, sewing, fellowship and more. I am a home school Mom, a pastor's wife, a grandmother, and now a quilt shop owner. I grew up in Danville, IL and moved to California in my
I worked at Countrywide Home Loans for almost 15 years and then decided to home school our son. My husband Steve is the Pastor of the The Well Christian Fellowship here in Simi Valley. My husband and I have always been involved in ministry/outreach throughout our marriage. Several years ago we were involved in running a food pantry in El Rio (Oxnard area) and now have committed ourselves to serving the Lord here in Simi Valley. Now God has blessed me with expanding my ministry work by opening up Quilty Pleasures.
Our vision for this shop is to provide a loving, warm, inviting place to "hang out". A place were fellowship combined with our love for fabric, sewing and other crafts makes this shop like no other. Thank you for being part of our family and I look forward to lots of joy in 2012.
I moved to Simi Valley in 2002 and I love being part of this community. I made my first quilt in 1982, but did not really begin quilting in earnest until 1997. What I love most about making quilts is their versatility: to keep people warm, to express artistic creativity, to top a table, hang on a wall, wrap a baby...the possibilities are endless.
I used to dream about one day opening a quilt store of my own. I envisioned a warm and friendly place where women could sit and relax while they dreamed up their next project. After all, creative endeavors should not be rushed, but savored.
At Quilty Pleasures we want you to enjoy the experience of choosing a pattern and fabric to make your next quilt. We will be offering an array of classes from beginner to expert. You're welcome to browse and enjoy!
