Fangmann New Owner of The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe

The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe in Manchester is under new ownership.

Leanne Fangmann has purchased the store from Kathy Wilgenbusch, who decided to retire after nineteen years in business. Fangmann says she had been a loyal customer of The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe for years and was ready for a new opportunity.

And she wanted to see the business continue, which her customers are grateful for. Fangmann spent a weekend getting The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe ready and re-opened the store November 4th. She says the reception from customers these first two weeks has been incredible.

Fangmann says she doesn’t plan on making any major changes to the business.

One thing she will be adding is local artwork from a Manchester area artist.

The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe is currently working on their class schedule for 2020 and they’d like to hear from you regarding what classes you might be interested in. If there’s a pattern you’d like to try or a technique you’d like to learn, just let them know.
