Pineapple Fabrics, a quilt shop in Center Harbor, New Hampshire, has been chosen as one of 10 shops from across North America to be featured in the Fall / Winter 2019 issue of Quilt Sampler®magazine, published by Better Homes & Gardens. The issue will be available on newsstands on August 23, 2019. Quilt Sampler, published twice a year, has been profiling North America’s top quilt shops since 1995.
Competition to be included in Quilt Sampler is high—nearly 3,000 quilt shops were eligible to apply for this year’s honor. To apply, quilt shop owners submit a detailed application on their history, business promotions, charitable work, teaching schedules, and design philosophies. A panel of quilt experts, spearheaded by the American Patchwork & Quilting® staff, reviews the applications to select the 10 shops.
Pineapple Fabrics and the other nine chosen shops were photographed and interviewed by a team from Quilt Sampler for a multipage profile that will appear in the magazine. Employees of each quilt shop also designed and made an original quilt. Instructions for that quilt will accompany the shop profile.
