A Note from Warren
I have always loved quilts. So, while still in college, I took a quilting class from a wonderful lady named “Mike Wigg”. I enjoyed everything I learned from her and the women in the class. Thirty years later, I found myself awestruck all over again when I walked into a quilt store and admired the beautiful quilts adorning the walls. I was inspired to enroll in another quilting course to refresh my skills...and from then on, I was hooked!
I still get to see Mike Wigg now and then. She is still a joy, good friend and a source of encouragement!
I continued to educate myself, enrolling in more classes and learned how to operate a long arm quilting machine. Many classes (and completed quilts) later, I had made several new quilting friends and discovered a new passion for Long Arm quilting, as well as the desire to use this amazing, time-saving skill to help others. I was very excited when we opened our quilt store, and I am happy to concentrate on making Woodside's quilt store and Long Arm Quilting services the best it can be.
As a note of interest, our company was named for the surrounding area where I grew up. The golf course, started by my Great Grandfather in 1930, bear the name "Woodside". Perhaps, more significantly, as I sew from home, I look out over our beautiful backyard into a quiet wooded area, which offers the perfect atmosphere for the relaxing pastime of quilting.
