The Quilted Work

"Your Home Away From Home"

About Us

The Quilted Work is my dream come true.  Four years ago (after 15 years of planning and waiting) I purchased my Gammill Long-Armed Quilting Machine with Statler Stitcher.  Little did I know that it would lead to a full fledged Quilt Shop and Retreat House!  I can now spend my days doing what I love best, being surounded by beautiful fabrics, exciting "toys", and quilting from morning till night. 

Besides The Quilted Work, my husband has built his own dream business, Gardens In the Works, a daylily farm.  So, surrounding my quilt shop, my husband has made a beautiful and elaborate cottage style garden full of daylilies.  Now you too can join us here in the beautiful Mid-Ohio Valley.  Remember we are

"Your Home Away From Home".
