Hi, and welcome to Cottontail Quilts! We have been in the historic Bozeman family home located in downtown Kennesaw for the last eleven years and we LOVE our quilty community.
Our goals are big but simple. Number one- we want to have fun and we want our customers to have fun. So, we are serious about customer service and friendliness. Number two- What do we want? FABRIC! When do we want it? NOW! We want to continually bring our customers new and interesting fabrics and sewing notions to get your creative juices flowing. Number three- we want to honor this centuries old treasure of a hobby by passing our skills and knowledge on to friends, family and new quilters.
Meet Our Staff
Susan Kimbrough is a fun new addition to shop. She is a customer turned employee! After living in East Cobb for 30+ years, she moved out to the bright side in West Cobb 3 years ago where she found us. Susan enjoys sewing more contemporary designs with bright colors.
Muriel Pfaff is well known as the The Quilt Teacher and has a fascinating background with her interests in history and different quilting techniques. Muriel is a gifted teacher and people gatherer who also lectures nationally on famous women in history. With Muriel, students can learn everything from the basics of piecing to advanced hand appliqué, from Lori Holt to Betsy Ross. Her love for reproduction quilting is contagious!
Have you ever seen those really in-depth artist collage quilts and thought, "Wow! What creativity. I could never do that!"? Oh, yes, you can and Nancy Hutchinson is the teacher who will help you get started. Nancy has been a certified Fiberworks instructor since 2018 and also teaches the one-block wonder technique. She lives in the Acworth/Kennesaw area and when she's not teaching quilting she is a full-time RN and full-time pet mom. She has a sweet but anxious dog and two cats who often make their way into her collage quilts.
She also teaches Creative Grids tools with Deb Heatherly patterns and Karen Eckmeier’s Accidental Landscape classes in the Southeast USA. She loves teaching and seeing her students grow more confident in creating these beautiful quilts!
Carol lives in Kennesaw with her Australian Shepherd and rescue cats. She has three grown children and her most favorite thing to do is making quilts and traveling! You will find more information on Carol’s classes and events on her website, www.stitchwithcolor.com
Having earned the title of the Glue Queen in quilting, Sandi Richmond is our very own in-house Wool Applique and Embroidery instructor who has through the year taught quilting, beading, kumihimo braiding and Sue Spargo wool applique. We asked her husband for some insight into Sandi and just loved his response:
"Clearly the most talented and beautiful instructor, she is currently a Smyrna resident and lives with her young boy toy husband and their 2 dogs, Klaus (a GSD) and Rutger (Doberman).
Sandi Richmond brings all her knowledge to bear as our newest instructor here at the store. Her creative interests include outdoor photography and quilting. With her over 30 years of blah blah blah experience in blah blah blah, you know you are getting the real deal. Her blunt and no nonsense style might not be for everyone however, you can rest assured that her honest assessment of your learning accomplishments will bear out your efforts.
When she tells you, you've done a good job, you'll know its true. Not to say, her class isn't without fun and humorous interaction. It's just that Sandi will not let you forget that this is a serious creative endeavor for those willing to put forth the effort. Creative enjoyment and accomplishment are her main goals."
