Hickory Stick Quilt Shop
Nestled in a historic district in Hannibal, Missouri, Hickory Stick Quilt Shop and owner Pat Waelder help customers create new memories of a lasting kind.
Giving Back to the Community
Pat's enthusiasm for her town's heritage is evident. During the annual Tom Sawyer Days in July, the shop staff helps local children select fabrics for their costumes-each year a newly designed and stitched quilt raises money for a scholarship program for those children. A Tribute to Mark Twain from Suzn Quilts was the 2008 raffle quilt. Pat promotes local quilt guilds and community college quilting classes and twice a year brings in an appraiser who provides written and verbal critiques of her customers' quilts.
