Friendship Star Quilt Shop, owned and operated by a mother / daughter team, has been serving the quilting community of Sayre, Pennsylvania, since September 2012.
After discussing the possibility of opening a quilt shop for about 5 or 6 years, Maryanne told her Mom, Mary Lou, that she was ready to be her own boss and open a quilt shop. Mary Lou enthusiastically replied, "OK, Let's do it!" Within 2 months, the pair had opened their brick and mortar shop...and they haven't looked back since!
Mary Lou has been quilting for over 30 years, makes most of the store samples and teaches the majority of the classes at the shop. Maryanne takes care of the day-to-day business, bringing humor and good natured teasing with her. She also knows a fair amount about quilting from growing up around it.
Both mother and daughter feel fortunate to work in such a creative industry where they spend their days associating with fun, friendly quilters! They are very dedicated to offering the highest level of service and individualized attention to each of their customers.
