Wish Upon a Quilt is rated as the top-selling Janome dealer in North Carolina, is a certified Judy Niemeyer shop and has been voted the top Fabric Store in Raleigh, NC. Building upon that success, McKillip is branching out, offering both her retail expertise and her top consulting and teaching services via a new website.
Working with McKillip online customers get: full access to her expertise, talent, and advice; to shop a full line of quality fabrics, notions, and sewing accessories that are superior to what is often found locally; to peruse a wide selection of fabric, notions, and accessories; to have fun using the site’s interactive features, planning for new projects, and getting inspired to finish older ones; to participate in a vibrant, diverse, supportive, and very active online community of fellow quilters and sewing enthusiasts.
Citing the popular American television show from the 1980s, McKillip says, “We are like the ‘Cheers’ bar of the fabric world. We know our customers personally which helps us customize our service based on what we know they like. Our customers trust us to suggest things that will help them grow in their craft and make beautiful things.”
Customers can shop for individual projects, choose one from the wide selection of patterns available, or participate in group-led projects like the popular Block of the Month Club.
McKillip puts an emphasis on making a personal connection with each of her clients. As such, her client base is intensely loyal and ever expanding. One client makes it a point to keep in touch all through throughout her travels, enjoying the Wish Upon A Quilt community wherever she may be.
“Betsy visits us in the store, then travels and sews in her RV and connects with us online and Facebook,” McKillip says. “She loves the sense of community that we provide.”
Having a vibrant online aspect to her business, McKillip says, allows her to interact with clients all over the world and share her love of quilting with other enthusiasts no matter where they life.
“We help people cover the world in handmade love,” McKillip says.
