July 13 – Hello From Ruidoso Radio Show

Jackie Hunter – Women in Business

A Quilting Stitchuation, LLC, began on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska in 2015. We were located in a small 12×32 quilt cabin my husband and I designed.

Our first project was a hot rod t-shirt quilt and we were hooked. Shortly thereafter a Long Arm was purchased and we began quilting, teaching and selling fabric, notions and gifts on a very small scale.

The dream of owning a brick and mortar business quickly became a reality after we purchased a home in Alto, NM and found a building to lease in beautiful Ruidoso, NM. After a month and a half of renovations (painting, carpeting, etc.) we had our soft-opening on December 17th and our Grand Opening was January 19, 2017. We had a record number of attendees, ribbon cutting, Accuquilt and class demo’s, Live Radio Broadcast, and giveaways.

A Quilting Stitchuation has grown and evolved over the last several years and at the end of 2020 we purchased our own property in Alto, NM. The plan is to have the quilt shop, retreat center and retreat house all in the same location! In May 2021, we will open our new retreat house to the first group of quilting retreaters! Eventually we will complete the existing metal building into a quilt shop, as well as a brand new building that will become New Mexico’s first quilt retreat center, Stitch-n-Pines Retreat Center, LLC. Currently we may hold up to nine guests and after the new building is complete, up to 20!!

What is “A Quilting Stitchuation, LLC and Stitch-n-Pines, LLC?” They are a place for creativity, fun, and knowledge to be shared with others who appreciate the love, time and warmth that goes into every stitch. Life is too short to not love what you do and do what you love. We fell in love with fabric, quilting, and the great people we met and continue to meet along the way.

This business offers Janome Machines, fabric, notions,patterns, kits, books, gifts and long arm quilting services, as well as classes, but most of all it’s a gathering place for friends to spend time together. We also provide knife and scissor sharpening and cleaning/servicing/repairing of most sewing machines!

Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you in the store or as a guest at our new retreat center!

Mandy Joy – Featured Artist – May 2016

Black And Blue  – About This Series… by Mandy Joy

While I paint, I very often listen to music and let my mind wander. Imagery sometimes floats through my head and inspires a painting or even an entire series. “Black And Blue” by Counting Crows is one of my favorite songs, despite the sad message, or perhaps because of the sad message. Duritz writes and sings of many hard and real situations in life. This one is about a girl, contemplating suicide, who then lies in bed next to him instead. The way the story is told throughout the song almost seems to me like it could have entirely been in his dream that this happened. Of course, those who have indeed lost someone to suicide also feel it must have been a dream. This provokes images in my head of the sometimes confusing line between reality and imagination, especially in life’s most deep and unbelievable situations, like when someone you know is truly suffering. These paintings – in black, white, and blue – show dreamlike scenes, memories, and peaceful images with meaning to me. In line with Counting Crows “One for sorrow, two for joy…” One is a memorial. Two have to do with strength, perseverance, and victory over hard times. Three are how I imagine “the other side” when someone is now at peace, either in life or in death. I have lost a grandfather I never knew to suicide, as well as classmates and friends when I was in my youth. I’ve experienced the confusion and the ripple effect of the aftermath, and after picturing them at peace, moved on. Feel free to ask me about any individual painting and what it means to me if you would like to know. I hope the gravity of the paintings adds a deeper layer of meaning to this than just the beauty, although if one would rather enjoy the painting only for its beauty or what it means to them, that is just as important. I believe that whatever brings happiness or serenity to one’s life, without taking from another, should be pursued.

Mandy Joy B and B“Black And Blue”

Fading everything to black and blue
You look a lot like you
Shatter in the blink of an eye
You keep sailing right on through
Every time you say you’re learning
You just look a lot like me
Pale under the blistering sky
White and red
Black and blue
You’ve been waiting a long time
You’ve been waiting a long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
Fall asleep next to me
Wait for everyone to go away
And in a dimly lit
room where you’ve got nothing to hide
Say your goodbyes
Tell yourself we’ll read
a note that says
I’m sorry everyone
I’m tired of feeling nothing goodbye
Wash your face
Dry your eyes
Cause you’ve been waiting a long time
You’ve been waiting a long long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
But fall asleep next to me
Have a dream I’m falling down
On my face
Scrape my knees
Scrape my hands until they bleed
Cause you’re fast asleep next to me
Next to me, next to me, next to me – Adam Duritz
