The Quilt Basket, a shop catering to quilters, will be opening in Pawling at 4D Oak Street in mid-August. The business’ first location opened in Wappingers Falls in 1989, and for 25 years they have been dealing in all the quilting essentials – classes, fabrics, patterns, machinery, etc.
The Quilt Basket is a family business run by Cathy Anderson, with help from her daughter, Sarah, and sister, Anne. Sarah’s 13-month-old son, Carter, will be a frequent presence at the shop as well. The family’s friendly, welcoming nature are sure to make the shop a pleasant place to stop by.
Sarah is the net-savvy member of the family, blogging on contemporary sewing topics atQuiltBasketNY.blogspot.com, and she is currently updating their online store at www.QuiltBasket.com. Sarah is also keeping Quilt Basket up to date in the social media scene – you can visit their Facebook page at Facebook.com/QuiltBasketNY, check out their pins at Pinterest.com/QuiltBasketNY, and follow them on Instagram @QuiltBasketNY.
