This was my booth January 2008, at The Oregon Garden Stitches in Bloom Quilt Show. My daughter Becky, my cousin Patty, and my husband Fred sit in the middle of a grand collection of quilts, some samples of our work. My daughter Becky has her own line of quilt patterns, hanging in the back and to the right. My quilts are on the table and hanging to the left. I'll be posting more pictures with close-ups later. The Oregon Garden is having its second annual quilt show in January 2009 and we plan to be there again. I hope you will come by and meet us. I will have quilts for sale, some with patterns, as well as pillows, wall hangings, and other items.
While I am not a "brick and mortar" store, and I do not sell yardage, eventually I will offer specials on gadgets and kits so check back often. I encourage you to support your local quilt shop and keep them in business. We don't want to lose our precious LQS. From time to time, I will post information about shops that I have visited and classes that I have taken giving details and contact information. I love to do shop hops and I always take pictures along the way. It's fun to see what's out there and to find those hidden treasures in far away places.
Nuts and Bolts Quilting Company
I am Bonnie Russell, owner and quilter, and my business is making beautiful quilts and making quilts beautiful. NABQC came about as a partnership between the love of sewing and hazelnut farming. That's how the name was chosen. My husband, Fred, is the nut farmer, and I do the sewing using many bolts of fabulous fabric. My studio is located in Dundee, Oregon, the beautiful Willamette Valley, in the center of a hazelnut orchard. Experience came with 42 years of dress making, 40 years of marriage to my wonderful, loving, supportive husband (34 years of nut farming), 25 years of raising three daughters, and now we have seven grandchildren to mentor in Future Quilters of America!
With a Statler Stitcher and Gammill Optimum Plus longarm quilting machine, a 14 foot table, and the drawing program AutoSketch, no project is too big or too small. Anything from hand guided meandering to custom digitized designs can be applied to a project to complete that labor of love.
