When local quilt shop Remembrances closed in 2006, quilters in Chester Township discovered they had to travel miles to find fabric and patterns.
Luckily, Chester will again be able to supply quilters with the latest quilting supplies.
The Quilted Thimble, owned by Russell Township resident Marty Anastasio, has moved into West Geauga Plaza. “Choosing a location for the store was easy,” she said.
“Chesterland and Chesterland’s small businesses offered a great support system and I loved the small town feel,” the owner said.
Former employee of Remembrances, Anastasio knew exactly what she wanted The Quilted Thimble to offer to quilting enthusiasts. They can come into the store and purchase everything they need to complete a quilt.
Anastasio has found that in her 35 years of quilting she had to visit different shops to get the necessary materials to complete one quilt. Recognizing that there has been a movement of younger people joining quilting groups, The Quilted Thimble is also offering more modern fabrics and patterns, including bags, iPad cases, and kitchen aprons. Anastasio looks forward to reconnecting with the quilting community and will soon be offering classes.
The Quilted Thimble is located at 12628 Chillicothe Road, Chesterland.
Hours are Monday 10-8 p.m., Tuesday – Saturday 10-5 p.m. Closed Sunday.
