The Sewing Box former owner, Wendy Airesman, began her love affair with fabric arts as a young girl in 4-H club. As the years passed, she developed her extensive sewing skills through the creation of clothing, home décor and quilts. She made and wore her own clothes, made curtains for the house and baby blankets for gifts.
But somewhere, in the back of her mind, Wendy had a dream of owning her own quilt shop someday. So she kept her quilting skills fresh by always making time in her busy life for quilting projects.
After a few quilt shop road trips, especially those to Amish Country, along with suggestions from friends, Wendy was further influenced and encouraged to open her own quilt shop in December 2011.
Wendy has been featured in the March 2012 issue of Somerset Magazine. She is active in family, community and church events, but no matter how hectic life gets, she always likes to have a sewing project going!
In March 2023 Wendy partially retired and passed on the store to her employee, April Hershberger. Wendy will be staying on to teach classes and Guided Sewing on Thursdays as well as retreats and other workshops.
