From a long arm business to a continuously growing shop, Footprints Quilt Shoppe seams are long like the sashing of a Queen sized quilt.

Sewing since in the single digits, Kelly’s knowledge of quilting inspires and motivates new and seasoned quilter alike. Before starting a family and a career in the medical field she worked at fabric stores in New Hampshire where she grew up.She was constantly creating and making and soon found herself in a different business; helping and healing people through the handmade.

Getting her long arm quilting machine set her off on the path to Footprints Quilting founded in 2007 which progressed to her first shop. Located in her sisters garage, she carved Rochester a quaint niche perfect for the quilters of New England. Outgrowing the spaces required moving the shop 3 times in the last 7 years. Each space she found herself in she was able to transform into a welcoming and warm space, learning more about herself as a quilter and shop owner she found that her passion is instilling this knowledge into others.
