The QuiltNutz owner is Treese Plfum, who has been sewing since she was 10 years old. She caught the quilting bug in 1978 and continues to expand her quilting skills and techniques.
As much as Treese loves making quilts, her favorite part is quilting the tops. Simple meandering to custom quilting of applique quilts, everything is fun! "There's nothing like finding the right pattern for each quilt," says Treese. "I enjoy the process, it's very relaxing..and allows my inner artist to come out and plaly.
Treese is also crazy about photography, and at times, both painting and photos end up in the art quilts and accessories. Treese has also taught quilting classes for adults and kids.
I have 12 assorted sewing and quilting machines. Obviously I can't use all of the at once, but gives me plenty of flexibility and options. One of my long arms is computerized, as are a couple of the sewing machines. Plus, having learned the hard was, I always have an extra machine available when one is in for service.
For her personal quilts Treese likes do a modern take on classics--pieced & appliqued--this is her passion. She is also active in the local quilt guild, and volunteers at the local high school
Welcome to QuiltNutz!
Our quilted creations are original, handmade for you to enjoy or give as gifts. Our love of color is a trademark of our quilts, wall hangings and accessories. We sometimes start with traditional ideas, but when we are done, it's anything but traditional.
Betty and Treese, the two "quilt nuts," are passionate about fabric and quilting. A while back we decided to share our passion with others, plus we really need the room. Treese took over the dining room and the family room to create a sewing and quilting studio. And after the passing of her beloved husband, Paul, she is in the process of changing the man cave into an office.
Twelve years ago, Treese added custom long arm quilting to the equation and offers this service to quilters. As we all know, the UFO's (unfinished objects) keep stacking up, and need to be completed, but who has the time? Or maybe you are one of the thousands of quilters who loves to piece, but hate to quilt. And, if you have arthritis or other physical limitations, we know it's a challenge to quilt your creations. Treese has over 15 years of long arm experience and 40+ years quilting and sewing experience with a keen eye for design that will enhance your finished top. Betty has been sewing since she was a little girl, and quilting for the last 23 years. She recently retired from the business due to health issue.
Quiltnutz also offers custom order quilts and memory quilts as options. Many of our custom quilts have pieces of clothing, t-shirts, ribbons, lace and photos of loved ones that are used to create a one-of-a-kind heirloom gifts. These make perfect wedding, engagement, graduation, anniversary and birthday gifts, as well as as quilts for college bound kids.
Our customers love their finished quilts, so check out the client reviews page. We hope you enjoy our quilts as much as we enjoyed making them.
