Speakers: Jill Shaulis and Vicki Olsen

We welcome Jill Shaulis and Vicki Olsen from Yellow Creek Quilt Designs. They will present a Trunk Show of their beautiful traditional quilts.

Jill  and Vicki are sisters that grew up in the great little town of Pearl City.  For many years they traveled to the post office to pick up the mail in the building the was once the bank. Who knew this building would house the greatest quilt/gift shop in North Western Illinois! 

Opening in 1992 under the name Sew many Antiques they carried a nice supply of quality quilting fabrics, patterns, books and antiques of all kinds. Soon they outgrew the space and added to this historic building. The name was changed to Yellow Creek Quilt Designs in 2010. Although quilting supplies continued with great enthusiasm, the antiques faded away to make room for many wonderful gifts and a great selection of wool & Valdani threads. 

Yellow Creek Quilt Designs was a featured shop in Better Homes & Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine in 2011. Their patterns have been featured in several Primitive Quilts & Projects magazines. Their first book was published by Kansas City Star as is called Kindred Spirits. Jill will be designing fabrics for Windham Fabrics in 2015.  Jill & Vicki will be offering a club featuring their exclusive pattern designs in 2015.
