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!

Holiday Jigsaw Puzzles

Santa Puzzles

Who doesn’t love jigsaw puzzles?  It doesn’t seem like the sort of thing that people are doing much of in these days of cell phones, high definition tv’s and tablets.  Growing up it wasn’t uncommon to have a puzzle on the dining room table for days at a time during the fall and winter seasons.   Although it might be uncommon to hear young people asking to bring out a puzzle as they seem like a pastime from the “old days” it would be strange if it didn’t draw their attention to the table if you set one out. Before you know it you can easily pass a few hours of quality family time together before the project is complete.  Even guest can’t resist adding a few pieces or sometimes many while visiting.  I challenge you to bring out a jigsaw puzzle this holiday season.  I trust you won’t regret it.  Click HERE to browse an assortment of jigsaw puzzles.
