Periwinkle Quilting and Beyond is our regional winner for Saskatchewan, Canada!

A quilt shop clerk took a brave leap and bought the shop when her boss retired. Read on to learn more!

Please tell us your store’s story.

Periwinkle Quilting and Beyond was born in August of 2021 with owner Michelle Harris. It began in a small shop in Cumberland Square.

Many quilting adventures and years later Michelle retired and on January 1st, 2017, Patti Erikson-Reynolds took over ownership and operations. We now reside in Plainsman Plaza which is conveniently located on 8th Street in Saskatoon.

Patti has been quilting for 23 years and it all started with one sewing class when her children were young. She worked as a sales clerk at Periwinkle for 12 years before taking the leap and buying the shop 6 years ago.

In addition to loving all things quilting, Patti is an avid horse woman who has ridden most of her life. She has a small farm and rides with her husband, Byron, who is also a horse nut!

“So many, many fabrics for all tastes, the latest in trends, oodles of bolts, great pattern selection, and lovely samples. Staff are so friendly and they offer machine sales and repair as well. This is a very nurturing place, with a rewards program to boot. Daily emails from Patti about the latest thing and a joke every Sunday morning tops off their wonderful service.”

In closing

When asked about the impact of the Local Quilt Shop Contest, Periwinkle replied: “The Local Quilt Shop Contest has been so much fun for us! It was lovely to read the comments voters left. We have the best customers! We’ve had lots of customers coming to see the ByAnnie trunk show and congratulate us on being voted the favorite quilt shop in Saskatchewan. We loved our prizes — and being able to talk about the ByAnnie patterns to our customers has been great. We’ve sold many patterns, fabrics, and supplies!”
