About Us

Hi there!

My name is Nina, owner of ScruffyQuilts.  We originally began as an online store in 2001 and while I've enjoyed running a web based business, I'd always dreamed of opening a brick and mortar quilt shop where I could offer a broader spectrum of products and services, as well as enjoy face-to-face interaction with customers.

It wasn't until 2013 that I finally decided to take the plunge, organizing a team of folks who appreciate the creative nature of quilting, fiber arts and other handcrafting endeavors. Needless to say, we love what we do!  We feel fortunate to work in an industry where we can indulge our passion for fabric and quilting, while sharing our knowledge and experiences with others...it's so fun to discuss project ideas with our customers and assist them with questions and product selections.

A visit to our store promises a leisurely shopping experience in a pleasant atmosphere brimming with fresh, colorful fabrics from designers and manufacturers such as Michael Miller, Hoffman Fabrics, RJR, Kona Bay and Timeless Treasures, to name just a few.  Additionally, we carry books, patterns, kits and boutique-style jewelry, fiber arts and other handcrafted items by local artists.  Our friendly staff is always happy to assist you, offering attentive, personalized service, along with warm smiles, engaging conversation and creative inspiration!

Oh, and what's the story behind the dog, you may wonder?  Well, that's Scruffy!  As our new puppy, he was at the center of everything, including a quilt block.  Because of this, the family thought it appropriate to name the store after him.  Personally, I enjoy the subtle irony, since our fabrics and quilts are anything but scruffy!

Scruffy's allowed in the store on some special occasions.  We look forward to your next visit…
