All things nice - Tulip Rose Quilt Shoppe

We're going to try and squeeze in a couple more 'All things nice' profiles before our next market. Hopefully this will give you a chance to get to know some of our wonderful Ballarat retailers a little more. Today we focus on Glenda from the Tulip Rose Quilt Shoppe, a lovely handmade business :)

Are you more sugar or spice?
I would have to say definitely more sugar than spice!

What inspired you to start your own business?
I am addicted to purchasing quilting fabric and had accumulated more that I could ever possible use for my craft and quilting, so I decided that I needed to get rid of some of the stash!  I started my business to sell the fabric but customers seem to be  more interested in the display pictures that I used of my items to showcase the fabric, and the more requests I received the more I realised that I could also sell my creations!
How did you name your business?
I wanted to start a store that incorporated both “country” and “shabby”  themed fabric and creations, as I had a mixture of both.  I associated tulips with the country theme items, and definitely roses with the shabby items….hence the Tulip-Rose Quilt Shoppe was born.

What is your favourite piece from your own range?
That’s a hard question!...I love the “lil girl” cupcake tote bags because they are so cute and every little girl needs a handbag to carry around her precious “stuff” but I have just finished designing and creating “Hootie” the heat bag…these are so cuddly and warm on a winters night so I think that “Hootie”  has become my favourite item!
