Diane Garlini, owner of the Attic Window Quilt Shoppe, walked into the vacant space in downtown Wenatchee and knew it would likely be the new location for her store.


“You know how you step into a place and have an instant liking for it?” she said. “That happened here. It was spacious, bright and right in the downtown core. Just what I was looking for.”


In the last seven years, Attic Window has become the hub of Wenatchee quilting — a hobby, a tradition and now an industry that’s growing nationally about 10 percent per year, according to online sources.


“We see its popularity in the classes and informal get-togethers we host,” said Garlini. “Attendance and interest has grown.”
Last weekend, Attic Window had a grand opening in its new digs at 4 S. Wenatchee Ave., the former location of Gallery 4 South. “Oh my gosh, we had lots of people stop by,” laughed  Garlini. “That’s the thing about quilters — they’ll find a quilt shop no matter where it is or where it moves.”


Attic Window still offers all its specialties: quilting supplies, patterns, fabrics, books, notions (needles and threads), sales of finished quilts and oodles of classes and workshops. But the Gammill longarm quilting machine, a mainstay at the old location on North Wenatchee Avenue, has been retired, along with sales of Viking sewing machines. (Repairs still available.)


“It feels like this (new location) really does put us in the center of things,” said Garlini. “It’s exciting.”


Details: Attic Window Quilt Shoppe, 4 S. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee. Open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. 888-2006. Web: theatticwindowquiltshoppe.com.
