National Cat Day is tomorrow but we're celebrating a little early and giving you a head's up that it's time to show your furry quilting buddy some appreciation. We're highlighting our cat dies, cat projects and introduce you to the cats of the AccuQuilt/TEK Brands family. We strongly suspect that our cats are just like yours with some wanting to run the house and some preferring to keep a low profile. Following our celebration of National Dog Day, we knew that our feline friends deserved their very own day in the spotlight.
Harley Sturgis Biker Quilts BIG - The Early Years
If there is such a thing as a stereotypical quilter, Karen Crotty isn't it. Karen is the warehouse manager at the AccuQuilt headquarters. She is the person responsible for making sure that all of your packages get to you on time and in good condition.
AccuQuilt employees are allowed two hours per week of paid time to work on quilting projects in our state-of-the-art Dream Studio where they have their choice of fabric cutters, thread, and sewing and embroidery machines. The Dream Studio also includes must-have irons and ironing boards as well as a longarm machine—every quilter’s dream—so we can do our own quilting.
May is always full of exciting events - like graduation! Two AccuQuilt team members celebrated graduations this month. Greg celebrated his daughter's high school career, and Tammy marked her daughter's graduation from high school with fun, family, and quilts, of course! A quilt is the perfect way to showcase years of memories, so both Greg and Tammy made t-shirt quilts for their graduating seniors.
