About Our Shop
JanniLou Creations is located in Philomath, OR, not far from Corvallis! Our shop offers over 3,000 bolts of wonderful cotton fabrics, hundreds of patterns and notions, and a wide selection of Block-of-the-Month programs. We also have available a variety of quilting classes for all skill levels from beginner to expert, including classes for kids. Housed in an old movie theater, we love playing on the movie theme throughout the shop. Folks are always intrigued with the remnants of the theater, and the staff feels a kinship with all those movie ghosts!
The shop was openned in 1993 when a “for rent” sign grabbed their attention. The building they rented was an old movie theater and Jan and Lou have had great fun turing it into a guil shop! Fabric lines include Benartex, Robert Kaufman, Hoffman, Kona Bay, Alexander Henry, P&B, RJR, Maywood Studios, Timeless Treasures, Moda … the list goes on and on.
Formerly the Waucomah movie theater, the shop’s history offers them a wealth of creative ideas. They play on the movie theme throughout their newsletter (“From the Cutting Room Floor”), their Saturday Matinee class listings, and their Sneak Preview sales. Their favorite “productions” are their beginner level quilting classes where students are a “cast of stars,” instructors are billed as “directors,” and sewing machines are “best supporting actresses.” They introduce each term’s classes at an open house “cast party”; strategically placed popcorn boxes are filled with quilter’s fat quarters in them instead of popcorn; and miscellaneous fabric packs are “quilter’s candy,” “Sew-Da’s,” and their 2-1/2″ strip rolls are “Reel to Real’s” packs.
You can visit their website, http://www.jannilou.com, and online store to purchase some of Judy’s patterns. You can also visit their shop to see some of Judy’s newest patterns on tour throughout 2011. Finally, with Jan’s certification, we are proud to announce she will fill the role of “assistant director” of sorts, bringing you a wide range of Judy’s classes and programs throughout the year and on a much more regular basis! She is also available to do trunk shows, lectures, and workshops outside of the store. If you are interested, please contact the shop for more information!
