Welcome to our New and Improved Web Site

Welcome to the New Quilter's Treasure website! Update on new web site. This is our 3rd try to get a new and improved web site. It is an E-Commerce site and we will be able to offer more services and options. The one thing we have stated is that it must be simple and fun to use, informative and easy for Bobbie to maintain. We do not want to be dependent on a Web Master. The original web site was a good start by Brian and we outgrew it. The next website launched late March 2014. The format was simple but very limited. It gave us no room to grow. Adding new products slow down the site. We had stopped adding products & information. Bobbie was frustrated she could not post the winners of the 11th Challenge. We are changing from Aorta to an E-Commerce site The link will remain the same www.QuiltersTreasure.com Please contact us at joe@QuiltersTreasure.com or 603-532-4844 for information not available at this time. Your feed back is welcome and encouraged. Thank you for your patience. Bobbie & Joel
