The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. - A New Sponsor & Giveaway

I am so excited to welcome  The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. as  Happy Quilting's newest sponsor!!!   Julie Boldry, owner and operator, opened The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. just under a year ago!!


I asked Julie to tell me a bit about what got her started in her quilting journey.  This is her story in her words :)

 I have always loved fabric and enjoyed making things.  I remember spending hours at the fabric store as a child while mom picked out our next outfit. I had always been around quilts as my great-grandmother quilted, but they were more of a utility item not a treasure.  As a teenager, I desperately wanted a comforter from the store instead of the quilts on my bed!
     So, in my need to be creative, I tried lots of outlets...calligraphy, paper crafts, embroidery, knitting (that ended badly!) , the list goes on and on.  So, when some friends invited me to their quilting day, I wasn't too sure.  I went, reluctant about quilting, but looking forward to a day with friends.  My third daughter was 14 months old and I needed some grown-up time. ;)  After that one day, I was hooked!  Long story short, The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. was born!  I opened my long-arm business in Spring 2008, started designing patterns in 2010, and expanded into fabric sales in April of 2012.  (Apparently, i get very inspired to start new things in the springtime!) 

 The tag line for The Scalet Thread Quilt Co. is: where modern and traditional meet.  Julie says that means a couple things.  First, it means they sell modern fabrics for a traditional craft like quilting/sewing.   Well that is for sure.  A few examples .

How about some of this Amy Butler, Gypsy Caravan Fat Quarters. So pretty :)

Or this stunning Lime and Aqua collection that Julie put together.  Love It!!!

And seriously, who doesn't love a little Flea Market Fancy??

The second thing Julie says where modern and traditional meet means is that she offers modern services in a traditional way.  She sells via the internet and ship orders all over the world, hence the modern part.  But she does it in a traditional way, with excellent customer service and treats people how they want to be treated.  And I couldn't agree with this more.  It is so nice to find shops that still put so much value on wonderful customer service.  
       
Thank you to Julie and The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. !!!   I am so happy to have them as a part of the  Happy Quilting Family!!! 




And as part of their welcome debut . . .  The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. is giving away a $25.00 Gift Card to one lucky winner!!!  




You have three chances to win, please leave a separate comment for each.  And since The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co. is a brand new sponsor here, I thought it might be nice for your entries to allow you to get acquainted :)
