Welcome to our very first QT blog!

At QT, we are dedicated to all things fabric and fantastic, all things that are Quilting Treasures! We are so proud of our heritage… did you know that we’ve been around since 1807…over 200 years in the fabric industry… WE KNOW FABRIC!

I’m Tiffany, I will coordinate the blogs that we post here at “On the QT”.  I will gather information to share with you and make this a fun stop for ideas, inspiration, and hopefully, some laughs along the way! I am an experienced textile designer/artist turned product development turned marketing manager. In these roles, I have designed the fabrics, helped turn them into products and all the while, talked about how fantastic they are… I am excited to start this blog adventure with you!

It is really something special to be part of a company that is so rich in history. I kind of get my geek on when I think about the many years of fabrics and countless projects that are out there because of this company! If you are a history buff, you’d love to see some of the great things we have in our library. Imagine a fabric swatch book from 1850 with production notes and details… I will definitely want to share that in an upcoming blog!

One of the most exciting things to know about us is that we are employee owners. We are proud of our history and nothing shows it more than the many long-term employees that are dedicated to making this company shine! We are constantly re-inventing ourselves, keeping in touch with the market, our customers (shops) and consumers. There’s something really satisfying about getting feedback on our collections! It’s a great feeling to share our passion for fabric and we hope you will join us to learn more about how we strive to keep everyone included in the creative effort. That includes our shop owner customers as well as quilters/sewers/crafters and DIY-ers who enjoy fabric and who want to imagine and create…just like us!

Our goal is to inspire you and help you find your fabric groove. We have a lot of different licensors and designers as part of our family of brands. We provide a variety of styles and genres to get your imagination flowing. There is something for everyone! We love fabric, we want to share that passion with you and hear about your QT favorites as well as your proud creative moments. Each of our brands was specifically developed to cater to different styles and audiences. Of course, you could love one, a couple or all of them! Our newest brand, Ink & Arrow is launching in December, we are very excited!

We’ll use this blog to feature upcoming collections… sharing what is trending and tips for how to make your ideas come to life! We’ll showcase designers and projects and ideas that can be passed along to other “fabric fanatics”.

We want to hear from you! If you have a blog post topic idea, let me know! This is what it is all about! Leave a comment, shoot me an email, we want this to be interactive and a place to collaborate!

Until next time…Use QT to create something that is fabulous…something fantastic… something FABTASTIC!

  1. In one of your blogs why don’t you talk about where the fabric was first manufactured. I am from Connecticut which was very involved in textile manufacturing. Quilters might be interested to know this history.
