A New Quilt Shop Is Open!
Quilt & Scrap Memories
Easley, South Carolina

Brenda James opened "Quilt & Scrap Memories", 1000 S. Pendleton ST., Easley, SC (Phone: 864-859-3391). The shop is half quilting, half scrap booking, and a little nook with shelves of pretty candles. The shop is easy to get to, right off a main highway Rt. 123, and is straight across the road from the Wal-Mart shopping center.

Fabric Shelves

Brenda opened her shop just after the holidays. She loves quilting and wanted to run her own business. There are about 850 bolts of fabric, with more coming in everyday. She has a concentration on Thimbleberries fabrics and Thimbleberries classes taught by Pam. She has a good-sized classroom, able to hold 12 quilters. Quilt & Scrap Memories also has basic quilt making classes, block of the month and soon to have applique classes.

Brenda, a self-taught quilter, began quilting about 18 years ago. She bought a short arm quilting machine to use in the shop, and would like to get a long arm machine soon. Before she opened the shop, Brenda was in management and was working 60/70 hours a week. She decided to channel that time for her own business and her shop was born. Her biggest supporters and helpers are her husband and son (a college student).

Brenda James, Owner

If you are traveling to western South Carolina or western North Carolina, stop in to see Brenda at the Quilt & Scrap Memories Shop, the welcome mat is always out.
