Craig resident opens quilting studio
Local resident opens longarm shop in Craig
May 21, 2013
Craig — Editor’s note: This story has been corrected from its original published version. Country Rose Quilting Studio is on Fourth Street.
Quilting is a way of life for Craig resident Linda Pinnt.
It's a passion she said she got from her mother, who left Pinnt a collection of quilting supplies, including a longarm machine, when she died.
Although the lifelong Yampa Valley resident has been designing quilts and teaching quilting classes at Colorado Northwestern Community College for the past 10 years, only recently did she decide to turn her passion into a business.
In March, Pinnt moved Country Rose Quilting Studio out of her home to 80 E. Fourth St., Suite 106. The shop is named after a design Pinnt submitted in 2010 to the McCall's Quilting Magazine design competition. Pinnt's entry was selected as a top-eight finalist.
In addition to Pinnt's longarm operation, with which she can produce custom-order quilts for customers, the shop offers a destashing service. Destashing is a service in which Pinnt sells people's unwanted fabrics, books, kits and lace for them online. In the future, she hopes to sell consignment products from local crafters.
Country Rose Quilting Studio is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays. Quilting classes soon will be added from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays.
