The learning continues...

As you may or may not know, here at Harriet's, education plays a key role in our business philosophy. Carrie is constantly taking business and marketing classes, Harriet recently had to learn all about Quickbooks and PC's and our employees are always thirsty for new knowledge about quilt making so they can better assist you when you come to visit and have a question.
In keeping with this tradition, Harriet and Carrie are currently conducting a series of classes for the employees, based on the Quilter's Academy series of books to assist them in their goals of the best customer service around.
Last night we held the second class in the series and we had a refresher course on making four- and nine- patches. Not only are we having a great time just hanging out together but we are learning all sorts of great tips and tricks and information that we can't wait to pass on to you over the counter next time you are in!
So, the next time you are in, ask us a question... we are always here to help! And if we don't have the answer we do all we can to find the answer and get it to you!

  2. Even though I have quilt for 10 years, all four of your books have been an inspiration and tutorial. They are excellent. I have used Vol 1 when teaching someone how to quilt. Thanks for the delicious recipe.
    I hope Harriet comes to New Braunfels, TX again. Mary
