leavenworth quilt company

SHOP OWNER Lynn Reppas ESTABLISHED 2013 SIZE 1,000 Square Feet MORE INFO? leavenworthquiltco.com Some people have never met a stranger. That’s true of Lynn Reppas, owner of Leavenworth Quilt Company, and doubly true for the shop’s hometown of Leavenworth in central Washington. Both are small in size but offer an extra-large welcome to visitors. Nestled on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains, Leavenworth is surrounded on all sides by majestic peaks—much like mountain villages in Germany and Austria. In fact, after the logging and railroad industries departed Leavenworth in the late 1950s, leaving it nearly a ghost town, community leaders proposed turning the once-typical downtown into a Bavarian-theme village to play up all of the wonderful aspects of Leavenworth: its mountainous surroundings, snowy winters, and warm springs and summers. The gamble paid off, and Lynn says the community…

prairie point quilt & fabric shop

SHOP OWNERS John and Susan Thorup ESTABLISHED 2013 SIZE 2,700 Square Feet MORE INFO? prairiepoint.com Store owner Susan Thorup overhears all sorts of juicy nuggets from her customers at Prairie Point Quilt & Fabric Shop in Lenexa, Kansas. Not that she’s actively eavesdropping—she just catches their gasps when they come into the store, their cooing over wall after wall of fanciful fabrics, and the oohs and aahs at the sample projects draped here and hung there. “People come in from out of town, and they tell us their friends told them they have to go to Prairie Point,” Susan says. Such accolades are sweet confirmation to Susan and her husband, John, who bought Prairie Point Quilts (and renamed it) five years ago. A longtime sewer and high school home economics teacher, Susan spent years in a supporting role at…
