Copper Canyon Quilting

Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard in December 2017

 

 

Copper Canyon Quilting was at Quilt Market/Festival.   I love their slogan: "from couch to quilting".  I'm curious to find out what it means.  The shop includes classes, sit and sews, embroidery, and long-arm quilting.   Their classes are super reasonable - $20 a class.  I'm hoping to chat with Sherri about the business model.  I wish I could go sit in on their classes.  They sound like a lot of fun!

 

Here's their opening video of the shop. They just opened it!
