About Us

 The new owner of The Sewing Box Quilt Shop, April Hershberger, took over March 19th, 2023 and moved the store to the new location in Meyersdale, PA. April is an eager quilter and can't wait to share her passion with others.  April is a wife, mother of two boys, and graduate of Frostburg State University as well as a social media influencer and creator. Her designs and home has been published in several magazines and she hopes to one day get The Sewing Box published too! 
The new "home" of The Sewing Box Quilt Shop is the "old Clapper's building" in Meyersdale and has many community and quilting connections. Doris Clapper, the founder's wife, was one of the creators of the Meyersdale Quilt Show and her daughter, Kim, later ran it for many years. It is our hope that the building's new life brings new life to Meyersdale as well and we can't wait to host you at the new location soon. 

Meet BOLT our store mascot and a Boston Terrier that is likely to be found around the shop when you stop in on a weekday. 

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.

The "new" location was built in 1962 and was a hardware store for many years, but it seems to make a pretty good quilt store too and we hope you will come check us out!
