20 Day Countdown to Opening - March 22ndMy husband, Robert, and I are delighted to announce the opening of our retail store front, Kansas Troubles Quilt Shop. In addition to hosting quilting retreats again after a 4-year break, we'll now have a permanent KT quilt shop featuring KT fabrics, patterns and favorite notions. Along with the most current KT fabric collections and precuts, we also have more than 500 yards of vintage KT from the past 12 years. I scored big at the Moda warehouse when they were bursting at the seams and had to sell some of the older KT fabrics from their library. What a find! There are limited quantities of many of my previous lines - Prairie Moon, Strawberry Jam, Winter Rose, Bound to the Prairie, Pressed Memories, Farmyard Friends and many more!
KT BerninaIn addition, Robert is partnering with the best sewing machine manufacturers in the world, Bernina, to service and sell their top notch sewing/quilting machines. We'll be offering classes quarterly and you'll be able to test drive the Bernina of your dreams. Call after March 1st to schedule service for your machine. 785-488-2120.
And so much more...I've always wanted to have a home decorating/gift shop, so now is the time. We'll have unique gifts, greeting cards, artisanal jewelry, baskets and organizational items to "up" the cuteness level in your sewing room. Need a gift? We've got you covered with candles - real & electric, sentimental charms to create your own unique necklace or keychain, hilarious magnets, wool purses, unique collectibles and antiques.
We'll have kits for our Mini Table Treats, the latest KT quilts and old favorites in cool containers & baskets...

On the other end of the block, The Linger Longer offers good ole' fashioned ice cream sodas, floats and fountain drinks from their restored soda fountain (I actually worked there in high school!). It's deliciously charming!
