General Info:
"Hi, my name is Julie McAuliffe. I live in San Mateo with my husband Kevin and four children – Scott, Shannon, Kathryn, and Ryan. My sewing career began at about age 8, when my grandmother taught me how to make “yo-yo” circles and put them together in a small quilt. This started my love of handwork and embroidery. My other grandmother taught me how to sew on the machine, and I was off and sewing! I started with making clothes, and made most of my clothes throughout high school, including those fashionable hot pants of the 70’s. In college, I worked my way through school by working at the local fabric store, and again, sewed most of my own clothes, as well as many model garments for the store, including coats, stuffed animals, upholstery items, and a wedding dress! I entered the Simplicity National Sewing Contest and won with a bright yellow rain coat made out of upholstery fabric with an embellished piping rainbow. I also earned a summer school trip to Spain by making over 250 miniature window treatments as samples for a woman who invented a mini-window pleating tool."

While visiting the San Francisco area April 2013 I went to Always Quilting. The ladies were very helpful in helping me choose fabrics for my next quilt, I have truble matching colors. The shop was one of the best I have been in. I live near Lancaster, Pa and have access to all the Amish quilt/fabric shops, Always Quilting is right with them. I have also been in a few shops in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and none of the shops even compair to Always Quilting. Although I doubt I will ever get to San Francisco area again but if I do I will deffinately return to Always Quilting. If I lived by the shop I would be taking classes there also.

Very friendly, helpful staff. ...

Very friendly, helpful staff. I was new to quilting and they helped me pick a great pattern and spent a couple hours helping me choose fabrics. They have a wide selection. The material costs more than at a large crafts store, but you can feel the difference in quality. The classes are amazing and incredibly useful. I've made 3 quilts since I took my first class with them.
