Three Generations in the Fabric Industry

Recently!  Jelly Roll Shop has changed ownership. It comes with a short story.

I want to start off by introducing myself. My name is Stephanie Wilson and I am the new owner of Jelly Roll Shop alongside my husband Scott. I started sewing before I began elementary school. I continued with this hobby as a child and young adult. I have always had a passion for sewing.

At a young age my Nanna helped move my passion forward. She allowed me to use her sewing machine to make items for my dolls; at the age of four. My Nanna ran a fashion fabric store until she retired. She is a very special lady who always believed in her grandchildren. She is now ninety-four years old and still has her sewing machine set up in her living room. At my last visit with her; we had a small gathering at her apartment so my uncle could put together her new sewing machine table! The love for sewing runs deep in our family.

When I was three years of age, my Mother took over my Nanny’s company. My Mom always instilled us with a wonderful work ethic. She had us counting change and taking phone calls at a very young age and we loved it. We thought we were playing store but it was real life. The shop soon transformed from fashion to quilting.

Now, here I am starting a very exciting chapter in my life. My husband and I are now running Jelly Roll Shop. We are so excited to assist everyone with their quilting needs!
