Chris’ Corner Quilt Shop was established in 1984, offering a small amount of quilting supplies as well as arts and crafts made by local artisans on consignment.
As the quilting business surged in this area of Kansas, the quilt shop business grew as well, and eventually the consigned items were phased out, and Chris’ Corner became a full-service quilt shop (What does full service really mean? Well, it means we have a bathroom and chocolate!!)
Chris’ Corner Quilt Shop has been reinvented multiple times to accommodate the needs of area quilters.
In 2005 the business was relocated to the present location, 3593 Old US Hwy 59, just outside the city limits of Ottawa, Ks. The building is recognizable, bearing an 8’ x 8’ painted quilt block on the north side, and colorful color wheels on the front.
The inventory has increased and the services available to quilters expanded. Offered is a wide variety of 100% cotton in affordable price ranges, as well as books, patterns, notions and gifts for quilters of all styles and levels. Classes are offered, and Chris is always happy to set up a special class for groups of friends.
Custom work such as T-shirt quilts and Memory Quilts and Memory Bears are a unique mainstay in the business.
Quilting Spoken Here is more than just a slogan, it’s the feeling you are surrounded with when you enter the building.
