To our valued customers,
The mission of Quilts & More is to promote & educate consumers on the value of keeping American made antique and vintage quilts & textiles in our current day economy over quilts made outside the US using mass production, cheaper materials and vastly cheaper labor. This country has so many beautiful & historical quilts made by our ancestors. Many times quilting was the only artistic and social outlet for these talented ladies. Quilting was such a big part of their lives and culture most all antique quilts before WWII have a very high level of expertise. However we did see a drop in that expertise after the war, as women went out to the work force and did not learn the craft like their mothers. We can help to improve our current day economy & honor our ancestors by purchasing and re-purposing their beautiful works of art.
Choosing Antiques & Vintage textiles is a great way to be green & help our economy to recover. It also helps to cut down profits from large corporations who now outsource their labor for very small wages in other countries. Most quilts made today are done so outside of the US using very cheap labor & materials. We offer high quality quilts & other textiles at the best prices possible for us to stay in business. Patricia Quilts and More also uses recycled packaging for shipping to keep costs down. All quilts and other textile merchandise are stored in a smoke free, climate controlled environment. Thank you for trusting us with your business over the years.
