Are you ready for this? My name is not Meg. It’s actually Maribeth, but my initials are MEG, and since Maribeth is such a mouthful to say, I shortened it to Meg for the sake of my business name, and it stuck! I don’t mind if you call me by my real name or my company’s name - some people just insist on calling me Meg, so if that’s your preference, go with it!
In addition to owning my business, I’m also a wife, mother and grandmother and have two of the most lovable dogs on the planet, and they are truly bottomless pits of need!In addition to owning my business, I’m also a wife, mother and grandmother and have two of the most lovable dogs on the planet, and they are truly bottomless pits of need!
How it All Started
I’ve been sewing all my life. As my oldest son was growing up I noticed that he had the cutest shirts! My heart remembers them so well and I knew that I wanted to preserve those memories and give him back a piece of his childhood. I always knew I wanted to make a t-shirt quilt. It was over 9 years ago that the spark ignited! I was sure that others, like me, would want the same for their children. This was the start of Meg’s Quilted Memories.
Working with business people across many different fields to develop my business plan, I was challenged by one mentor who asked me “What are your non-negotiables?” He explained that as businesses grow they change, they face challenges, etc. I needed a guide for my non-negotiables. At the top of that list was quality. So that means no inferior batting and no cheap thread. It means only quilt shop quality fabrics are used in making my quilts. My customers deserve only the best from me and my company.
Stitching Together Your Life Story
Since we started, we’ve made over one thousand t-shirt quilts. Our tag line is “Stitching Together Your Life Story” and we’re passionate about doing just that. Each shirt is important to you and it’s important to us as well. We strive to provide you with the best quality, high precision, and a high level of communication in the quilt making process. You’re not a number to us. We have a handful of dedicated employees who will handle your order – from the cutting/layout department, to the sewers and quilters and in the final stage of shipping it back to you. We keep your quilt and your needs top of mind during the entire process.
What Your Quilt Says About You or Your Loved One
I think everyone’s favorite thing is to see all the different shirts that come in. We can learn so much about someone through their shirts. We love to see all the places you’ve visited and the concerts you’ve attended. We love to celebrate your life accomplishments as well as honor your loved one’s passing. We always say “This is not our quilt, it’s yours.” We appreciate being able to give you something unique and special.
So, let us design a quilt for you!
