“Quilting threads will keep us together.” Patty Stringer, owner and operator of Home Made Quilts n More, explains that quilters will find one another. The new spacious location in the former “Cook and Douglas” mercantile store is a comfortable, creative place for quilters to gather, learn, and share. Travelers on busy Highway 171 stop to visit when noticing the quilting sign on the attractive store front and many express an interest in learning to quilt. Clients are located mainly along the Highway 171 corridor from Keithville to DeRidder as well as East Texas.

Patty says that she has been doing some type of sewing for most of her life. Although she has a background in electrical engineering, always in the back of her mind she wanted to open a shop to share her love and enthusiasm for fabric. In 2005 she and her husband purchased their first long arm quilting machine. That was when the wheels went into motion developing a plan to create some type of quilting/fabric shop.

At first Patty just started doing long arm quilting for individuals as a side job. This was very satisfying but she soon found herself wanting more. In the Spring of 2010 Patty and her husband began going to classes to learn about the business end of things. Then she found a wonderful location. She opened Home Made Quilts n More in beautiful, historic downtown Grand Cane. The first location was a small upstairs space. She later moved to a larger space which accommodated the shop for several years. She recently moved to the present larger historic building which has sufficient space for the long arm quilting machine, bolts of fabric displays, quilt displays, and cubicles for classes.
