I’m not a quilter. I don’t know the owners of Island Quilter. But I love color and light. And who doesn’t? Especially during the gray days of fall and winter. How wonderful it is to drive or walk by the large, wide-eyed windows in town to take in the many colors and designs and all the light!
Community Events, March 2015
When is it really too late? The implications of the sale of the building housing Island Quilter are staggering. As stated in the article in last week’s Beachcomber, the shop draws customers from all over the world, bringing business to other places on the island.
Over and over again, we hear about the struggle of our local island retailers and we are encouraged to support them with our business. But the sale of a building is forcing one of our retailers, Island Quilter, to move off island, and for what?
Our family was very saddened to hear of the circumstances that are forcing Island Quilter to relocate. With all the current conversations around the need to create community places, welcoming places, customers for island businesses and something for teens to do, this amounts to a tremendous loss in all of these areas.
Your front-page story on Feb. 18 (“Quilt shop to move off-island as building sells”) is the most tragic, depressing real estate story ever read
