Welcome Betsy & Galen, New Owners of Quilt Beginnings

Hi everyone!
We are excited to be joining this wonderful family! We searched far and wide to find a business we could call our own. The minute we crossed the Quilt Beginnings threshold, we felt the magic and knew we had found our home. Betsy took her first quilting class here and absolutely loved it. She was able to see firsthand the vibrant and caring community that has been built here. Just like many of you, she has grown to love the art of quilting and working with the QB team to select the pattern and fabric for her next project. Quilt Beginnings is a tremendous business, with unbelievable customers and an outstanding team, that we are honored to inherit. To top it off, Cathy and Caity have agreed to stay on board for the next few months to ease our transition. While new ownership is a big change, we are committed to a smooth transition that sets us up for many years of growing and supporting this community. You will see the same friendly faces you have come to trust, and we will continue to offer our quarterly newsletter, awesome classes, the best brands, world class repairs and everything you have come to love about Quilt Beginnings. We can’t wait to meet you!



Thank you for sharing your passion and helping our business thrive. We love engaging with our community and hope you feel right at home every time you visit us. We delight in the many friendships that have formed within our store and love watching our community grow. Welcome to our family!


Our History: Where It All Began
Cathy Shoemaker and Caity Coffin

Quilt Beginnings' journey started in 1998, when Cathy decided to leave her project management position at Bell Labs to become a quilt shop owner. Her vision was to create a high-energy quilt shop, where customers and staff are treated like family! Quilt Beginnings was born and she never looked back! From our early days on Main Street in Bexley, to our current home on Sawmill in Dublin, our desire to offer you the highest quality materials and education on the market has never waned.

Cathy's daughter Caity rejoined Quilt Beginnings full time in 2019 and they joyfully ran Quilt Beginnings for 4 years as a family business before transferring ownership to Betsy and Galen Kelch at the start of 2024.
