Meet Mary Beth!
Mary Beth Groseta, a long time resident of the Verde Valley and retired librarian, believes good service is the most important part of every day. She makes sure customers are immediately greeted with a friendly "hello" from the staff as they enter to encounter a world of rainbow-colored fabrics – including soft pastels, bright florals, and a variety of different patterns and textures – as well as an array quilting and sewing supplies, kits, books, notions and BERNINA sewing machines unlike any other.
An avid quilter herself, she is professional in this craft and a wealth of knowledge in the trade. Her primary goal is to provide local quilters with the high quality fabrics they want. She carries mostly 100 percent cotton fabrics and a bit of polyester and batiks. She revolves the stock so the store is displaying new fabrics all the time.
