Meet Jill Koudelka! Jill has been quilting since 2008 when she took her first quilt class from us. She has been a good friend to Bluebird over the years… She made our OPEN sign as well as the sign that hangs in front of the shop.
She was in charge of our raffle block for 3 years, and has done the window display for all of 2014.
Jill is a generous and prolific quilter and is proficient at long arm quilting. Jill designed, organized and assembled a beautiful Bluebird quilt for us to display in our shop. We love Jill, her generous, giving spirit and her quilter’s heart!
We are a full service quilt store in downtown Nampa, Idaho. We offer inspiration, encouragement and instruction for fledgling and "free flying" quilt artists. We have a wide range of quilting and sewing classes for all ages and abilities and a beautiful long arm quilting machine that we share with our quilting sisters. Custom quilting services are available including long arm quilting services, binding and completion of those treasured heirloom quilts to be enjoyed for generations to come. Join us!
The journey of a thousand quilts begins with a single stitch....
