We're excited to share our Q&A series featuring exemplary quilt and fabric shops all around the country that sell Shannon Fabrics products. To nominate a shop in your area, please let us know in the comment section below. #shoplocal
The Quilter’s Market has been the go-to quilt shop in the greater Tucson area, but when present owner Tawnya Freeman took it over in September 2019, it was expanded to include even more fresh and irresistible quilting fabrics! Besides the shelves and shelves of fabrics and notions, they also offer machine and longarm quilting services, a variety of classes and plenty of inspiration for their customers!
This winter, our National Educator Teresa Coates (and Hawke, of course) will be stopping by on her Season 8 Sew Together Tuesday tour to broadcast LIVE from the The Quilter’s Market shop floor (she’ll be teaching a couple workshops, too)! Click here for more details and our complete Season 8 schedule.
