Meet us!

Bear Paws Quilt Studio has been making custom quilts for our customers all over the world for the past 20 years. Our custom quilts include memory, photo quilts, t shirt, a special custom one of a kind custom quilt for your bedroom, baby quilts, traditional, modern,and we even take silk ties and turn them into table runners or bureau scarves.  We have had customers ask us to take their wedding gowns and make them into Christening Dresses. With over 45 years of Bridal experience, Judy envisions the little gown and turns it into an heirloom for generations to come.

    Our quilts are all made with top of the line fabrics and battings.  Each one of a kind quilt is machine sewn, machine quilted using our Long Arm quilting machine and then the binding or quilt edge is stitched on by hand with a blind stitch.  Perfection at its best.  


    We are a one stop quilt shop in that we also finish quilt tops that may have been started and now need to be finished.  Once the top is complete we will quilt and finish the binding if so desired.

    In addition to our Custom Quilt Business, we also have a Gammill long arm quilt machine to quilt quilts for customers.  With over 7,000 patterns, there is always a pattern perfect for your quilt be it all over quilting or custom block placement design.  Our rates and turnaround times are reasonable.  With customers who have been with us since we have begun long arm quilting, we can honestly say we strive for perfection and do a great job!

    Judy and Lorna are mother and daughter who thought up the idea for the Quilt Studio while on vacation at a lake in New Hampshire one summer.  Of course we brought our sewing machines with us and while the boys and men were fishing we discussed how we felt that a photo and t shirt quilt should have symmetry as well as design when incorporating photos and shirts.  And thus our business was born!  We are award winning quilters and Lorna has published quilt patterns, has been featured in quilt magazines and has designed quilts for fabric manufacturers. But the fun in our business is working one on one with our customers.  It's a very rewarding job!
