Ellen's Quilt Creations is owned by Ellen and Fred Webb. We live in Madison, Wisconsin; but are originally from Michigan. We are in Madison because our son and his family moved here several years ago and they wanted us nearby. Fred took early retirment and we sold our home in Canton, Michigan, moved into our motorhome and travelled full-time for four years and we were snow-birds for an additional 3 years. Our grandkids decided they wanted us to be here for Christmas so they talked us into staying in Madison year round for the past couple of years.
The grandkids are: Griffin who is 14 and in the 9th grade. He is attending Memorial High School this year and seems to enjoy it. Robin is 13 and in the 8th grade at Spring Harbor Middle School and Erin is 10 and in the 5th grade at Falk Elementary School. I have gone back to work part time at the west side Walmart here in Madison as their training coordinator.
Our daughter, Karen, and her family live in Benecia, CA. There are two more grandkids in that family. Ann who is 12 and Drew who is 10.
We began Ellen's Enterprises in 1999 by doing personal cards for RV'ers at RV rallies. Customers would then give the cards to friends they met on the road. Fred would take the pictures and I would sell the cards and help to design and print them. In between customers, I would do cross stitch and customers asked about what I was doing. Eventually, I started selling cross stitch kits in addition to the cards. I have always loved quilting and so decided to start selling quilting kits and patterns as well. I began taking my featherweight sewing machine along and demonstrated paper piecing at the rallies. After we no longer were travelling as much I began selling quilting kits and patterns on my own web-site: ellensquiltcreations.com and on E-bay. At the present time I have approximately 2000 quilt kits and patterns available with new ones arriving all the time.
I do have a line of star patterns and kits that I designed. Those can be seen on my web-site.
The web site is ellensquiltcreations.com We haven't been able to make revisions on the web-site so it doesn't have all the patterns on it yet. We hope to be able to do so in the near future.
We do have a store here on ebay and that is found at ellen's quilt creations. Lot of new patterns arriving all the time. Be sure to check it out!
