So…. a crazy thing has happened, and part of me still can’t believe it.
As you know, I recently opened Bearbottom Quilts in an effort to sell some of my beautiful creations.
Well, not long after I opened the shop, I got an email from someone who was interested in buying all the quilts I had in stock (yes, ALL!!!!), to sell at a winter market in the coming months.
At first, I was a little reluctant. 1) It seemed way too good to be true. 2) I just opened the shop and did I really want to sell everything out… it would make it hard to gain a following while I was replenishing the stock.
But, we corresponded back and forth for a bit, and the offer became more real. So now, the shop look likes this…
Sad and empty! But I’m pretty darn happy. As you read this, Mom and I are probably on our way to deliver the quilts (it’s in a town about an hour and a half from us). My quilt ladder is empty, and I have a pile of space back in the studio!
Of course, as soon as I get back from delivering them, I’ll be making more quilts! Got to get that store stocked again!

That is wonderful! Congratulations. Now you’ll have lots of fun putting together new color combos and patterns AND you’ll be busy through the winter! YAY!
That is amazing and wonderful! Your quilts are treasures for sure and I know that whoever recieves them will be so happy to get them. I guess if anyone here wants one we’ll have to do a speical order! 🙂
Now you have lots of space to start stocking up again.
Wow! That is just crazy but you have to admit they knew a good thing when they saw it. Your quilts are gorgeous.
It’s a dream come true!
And we all know that you cannot tolerate the void, so between you and your Mom, you’ll be snipping and piecing and creating and sewing like demons ‘ere long!
Congratulations! And you know they will all make those who buy them happy and like they have a treasure. That is worth everything.
After losing your dear kitty, this is good happy news. I am thrilled for you Val!!!!! Wow. This is very exciting!
How awesome!!! Congrats
Congratulations! That is so wonderful and exciting! I can’t think of a better start to a business than selling all the inventory within a short period of time. You will have to let us know about the person purchasing the quilts and the event. So happy for you.
That is such incredible news, congrats to you. All your beautiful owrk will be so appreciated.
I’m SO HAPPY FOR YOU! Great incentive to make some more quilts not that you needed to be forced to do so! lol
That is so fabulous! Someone has good taste!
Now you can just create for a while and not worry about your shop!
Way to go!! Perhaps they will buy more as you create more! 🙂
