Grandma’s Attic

Many of us have passed by the quaint little brick building located on Court St, but how many of us have stepped inside? Well, as April 1st was not only Easter and April Fools Day, but International Tatting Day I felt that it was time we talked about one of our landmark residents.  And no that’s doesn’t necessarily mean everyone gets a tattoo.  It’s for all things needlepoint.

Grandma’s Attic takes us on a trip back in time to when our Grandmothers all gathered around quilting frames and created beautiful family heirlooms. Grandma’s Attic was founded in 1994 with a mission to provide quality quilting and sewing products that help continue the unique traditions and connections of our ancestors that tie us to our history, our family, and to causes of women around the world. Not content to let that history disappear Grandma’s Attic offers classes for everyone; from the beginners to the historians.

What makes Grandma’s Attic unique is their customer service and extensive knowledge. Grandma Rachel has dedicated her life working with and learning the role of textiles in women’s lives throughout history. Grandma Rachel is always willing to share the wealth of knowledge that she has accumulated. She believes strongly in caring over personal customer service to her online clients as well and encourages them to call with any questions or concerns they might have.

Grandma’s Attic is proud to reside in the Dallas community with its deep roots to the 19th Century Pioneers of the West. They share with their customers the history of our area; from the end of the Applegate Trail to the origins of our historical Polk County Courthouse.

Happy International Tatting Day Grandma’s Attic!
