Conway Quilts is a home-based business located in the rolling hills of Western Massachusetts, where I live with my husband Ed, dog Boomer and two cats, Shadow and Boo. I am Carol Baldwin, a quilter who has been sewing and repairing quilts for over 35 years. My lifetime of sewing experience started at age six, when my grandma Flo taught me to sew. My first quilt repair was done for my great-grandmother's quilt...
Alice Stock's 1915 Flying Geese quilt
Alice Stock lived on a farm in Shavertown, PA, raised eight children, and was a renowned seamstress. She made this quilt using her husband's old work shirts. It's known as a "summer spread" because it has no batting in it. After almost a century of wear and tear, the only major work it needed was a new binding; those old-time work shirts were made to last.
As the years passed, I took my passion for quilting to a new level, teaching hand quilting in public libraries, doing commission work for special occasions, creating a 9/11 memorial quilt for a fireman's family, and creating many bed quilts for friends and family. Repairing antique quilts became a home-based business in 2010. Quilts are sent here from all over the United States, thanks to many referrals from friends and associates.
Your quilt will be treated with the utmost care, and whether very old or not-so-old, it will be made to last for generations to come.
Estimates are FREE. Tell me about your quilt, and I will respond promptly. We can make an appointment for you to visit me at my studio in Conway, MA, or you can mail me your quilt with return shipping included, and I will give you a detailed estimate for repairs that includes all the information I've gathered.
