Welcome to our shop!Welcome to the Quilt Shop in Bowie. My name is Nanette Stapleton. I am the owner, wife, mama of 4 beautiful kids and Yaya to 7 beautiful grandbabies. I have been sewing and quilting for over 30 years. My passion for sewing started in a home economics class in high school. I went on to pursue an education in engineering, started a family and worked in IT for 20+ years before retiring last March.
Through the years sewing and quilting with my good friend Deanna Faglie became a pastime that we enjoyed together. We learned so much about the craft and made it fun. I loved creating beautiful quilts for family, friends and coworkers for all occasions. It became a hobby / passion that never went away!
As the years have gone, I’ve wanted to bless more people with the ability to have their favorite memorabilia quilted, or sacred memories made into a quilt to enjoy for years to come. The Quilt Shop has been a dream as I have visited quilt shops over the years I thought about what I liked and would like to have in my shop. I thought of a couple of things. One, when you’re looking for a quilt shop, what name are you looking for? THE QUILT SHOP! So that’s what we went with! Two, I wanted quilters of all experience to feel welcomed. No matter how new or advanced a quilter you are, you are welcome. This is a no judgment zone. We are so excited about our growth in this community!
