OUR HISTORY IN THE FABRIC BUSINESS
We are a locally owned internet ONLY quilting source. Jeanne and John have been in the fabric business in Sioux Falls, SD since 1962 in one way or another. They now choose to operate as a home business with customer service as their main interest. John designs and makes the quilts and Jeanne is the cutting and shipping department. They really appreciate each and every order you place and take special care to treat you like they would like to be treated themselves. You know, the Golden Rule? John traveled for RJR with Jinny Beyers line for several years in the Dakotas, Minnesota and Iowa and his love of quilting has been on-going most of his life. He came from a small country dry goods store experience that his Great grandfather started in 1892 and has had a great interest in fabrics all of his life. Jeanne was the main fashion fabric buyer for our stores in South Dakota and Nebraska during the glory days of the fashion fabric business. You know people actually sewed their own clothes from our selections of fine linens, wools, silks, cottons and all those other glorious fabrics. Those stores were called Jeanne’s Fashion Fabrics and enjoyed tremendous success during the period of 1962 thru 1983. Plum Creek Quilts was re-born from that business.
Our parent corporation Jeanne’s Designer Fabrics, Inc. in Sioux Falls, SD for over 25 years was the “go to” place to shop for fine fabrics for sewers that created their own clothing, quilts, knitting, sewing machines etc. Several years ago we sold all 5 of our “brick and mortar” stores, retired and started our home based, internet only store. We concentrate now on quilting fabrics, quilt kits and quilt patterns in our home based internet store, Plum Creek Quilts .
