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!

Special day. They painted butterflies and became apart of an art installation. Read more.

Mange can be deadly

Ok.

Our heroine caught the mange. (A disease that can result in death)

Did Buttercup (I’ve been studying her family for 3 generations) miss important life lesson from losing her mama Blossom too young?

I don’t like sad stories. I wasn’t going to tell you … but great local folks, who are in the know helped me figure out how to medicate her.

It was a riddle to solve how to treat her with medicine and not a skunk, that I could kill, if she ate it (medicine dose was too big for a tiny skunk)

I was provide a trap.

Mange makes bold spots in hair.

But instead of using it. I mixed medicine in hummingbird feed and prayed that Buttercup be the only animal to come to my watering hole that night. (A tall order)

God honored my goofy pray.

Buttercup came and no one else (very rare) and loved the sweet water surprise that waited her.

I think her hair is starting to grow back. Her litter has clearly arrived. Hope to meet them in June if she chooses to show and tell them with me.

I pray for them and hope they don’t show up with the mange.

Good grief how would I dose all of them? Lol.

I Leave that for another day.
