BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Acorns & Oaks, a new business that opened this month, is referred to by the owners as "your hometown quilt shop."
Owners Kathy Arbogast, Cheryl Rink and Shirley Hillgren are members of the local quilting group, Delectable Mountain Quilt Guild.
"We've never been shop owners before, but we are so excited about this," Rink said. "We are veteran fabric and quilt shop shoppers."
The three have been sewing all their lives, she said.
"We grew up with the treadle sewing machine," Arbogast added.
Acorns & Oaks offers 100 percent cotton quilting fabrics and notions.
"In addition, we have vintage quilts from 1900 to 1920 for sale, as well as new quilts, wall hangings and home dcor," Rink said. "Two rocking chairs are available to browse the quilting books or a place for husbands to sit while their wives shop."
