It is an incredible honour to be considered one of the top quilting shops in the country, especially as a Canadian store and we are absolutely  delighted.  We owe a huge debt of gratitude to you for helping to make this possible.  Your continued and committed support and encouragement has allowed us to become the quilt shop that we are today.  Our heartfelt thanks goes to everyone.  

We will have a lot to say about this in the comings months.  We invite you to stay tuned to be part of the celebration!  The Quilt Sampler® Magazine complete with a profile of TRS and photos will go on sale on September 6th.  Reserve your copy as well as kits of our original quilt, Urban Row, which will be featured in the Quilt Sampler® Magazine by contacting the store today!
