So long, farewell FunQuilts, hello Modern Quilt Studio

The picture above was taken in a few weeks ago and gives a hint as to what the new studio will look like. On December 22, we move the studio to our new digs. It’s hard not to remember the morning I woke up almost 13 years ago and decided to start a business in our basement with a Bernina and a dream that quilts could be modern. It’s been a great studio for us and we’ve had so many great memories here. It will be exciting to see how the new space changes how we work. As is the case with our current studio, the new studio has a separate entrance and will be in the basement of our home. The new home is a 1930 Tudor that has been completely renovated. If you’re curious about the rest of it I have been keeping a renovation blog not-so-coincidentally called so feel free to take a peek inside.

Once the dust settles, we’ll invite you over for a New Name, New Book, New Studio party in January but in the meantime, we’ll be closed from December 22nd and will reopen on December 26th.  We’ll close again on the 30th when our household moves and re-open on January 2nd as the shiny new Modern Quilt Studio, complete with that new name smell. Never fear – I’ll post pictures of the chaos on Facebook should you want to be able to think as I used to when I saw my friends moving “Boy am I glad that I’m not moving right now.”

Warm wishes for a joyous holiday (without any snow just yet please).
