Twins Becky Tillman Peterson and Rachel Woodard of Quilted Twins.
Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard
Date May 2018
Becky, and her twin sister Rachael, come to chat with us about their quilting and entrepreneurial life. They don't do anything small. They tell the story of how they started their online and now brick-and-mortar fabric store, and also how Becky designs patterns. They are so very funny. I think we all have a little bit of Becky and Rachel inside of us, but they just take it to a whole other level.
Since this interview, Corrie Dutton, our law student went to their shop! And there is video of the shop on our FB group site. They have also become one of our research sponsors. We've very excited.
