2023 Winner Highlights: Kruusn Quilt Designs

Kruusn Quilt Designs in Coos Bay is our regional winner for Oregon!

Read on to learn about the shop’s owner, who started out by making and selling clothing to her elementary school friends.

Please tell us your store’s story.

Kruusn Quilt Designs opened in February 2017. Our mission is to inspire creativity and foster community through quilting. We believe that quilting is more than just a hobby — it’s a way to connect with others, express ourselves, and create something beautiful and meaningful.

We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality fabrics, tools, and resources, and to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone feels at home.

Linda Kruusi Mason is an entrepreneur who has always had a passion for textiles. As a young girl, she started making and selling clothing to her elementary school friends after her parents sent her to the YWCA for sewing lessons.

In the late 90s, Linda decided to turn her passion for textiles into a business and opened a successful fabric dyeing business called Dyeing Art Studio. Over the years, she explored different aspects of the textile industry, from dyeing fabrics to writing patterns. However, Linda always had a dream of owning her own quilt store and retreat center.

That dream became a reality when Linda opened Kruusn Quilt Designs in Coos Bay, Oregon. Today, she owns and operates the store, where she sells a variety of fabrics, patterns, and quilting supplies. In addition to the retail aspect of the business, Linda also hosts quilting retreats and workshops, where she shares her knowledge and passion for the craft with others.

The owner is always friendly and helpful. She also has a wonderful amount of fabrics to choose from, and even my husband enjoyed shopping there. It is my local quilt shop and we enjoy the view outside as well as inside.

Kruusn Quilt Designs is very homey. Every time I go shopping I get a very warm welcome. The very best part is Linda Mason, Terry, and Caryl. They are very helpful when I need help. Linda always explains things to me when I goof with my project and I think that’s great customer service. I will vote for Kruusn Quilt Designs anytime. I love them and I had so much fun.
