The Bad News:
I am closing the Cross Country Quilt Barn's doors very soon. The current global recession we are in has affected my business greatly. Customers who were once budgeted for quilting projects are no longer able to purchase like they used to, which in turn has effected my ability to offer "the latest and the greatest" products to my customers. As most of you already know, this website was started as a way to not only provide my customers with quality products at competitive prices, but also to provide a means for me to continue to be able to stay home to care for my five children and to possibly allow my husband to be home more. My husband owns a paint contracting business that allows me to stay home and care for our five children but the responsibility and stress of working 80+ hours a week is a heavy burden.
The Good News:
We started a home-based, recession-proof, global business 6 months ago. Our company offers the newest cutting-edge technology, video communications, which is the next trend in technology. My company helps people make money and also helps people save money on essential services. It made sense to my husband and I to move in this direction, developing a residual income, which is providing us the time freedom that traditional small business ownership could never allow. We just couldn’t afford to let this opportunity to pass us by. This business also allows us to help other people interested in freedom, to build a business of their own. I would urge you to take a few minutes to browse our new website to learn more about this exceptional business opportunity: www.spottsfamily.acnrep.com.
I would like to thank all of my wonderful customers, vendors, and friends. This adventure has been so much fun and has taught me so much about business ownership, partnership, and friendship. God has always taken care of things and this transition is proof of his provision.
Thank you so much for your support and God bless,

Thank you to all my wonderful customers for your support, encouragement, and patience while I prepared for and welcomed the newest addition to my family...Ellianna Faith Spotts. She was born on February 10, 2010 weighing in at 5 pounds 15 ounces and was 18.25 inches in length! She is such a blessing to my family. Now that I have mostly adjusted to life with 5 children, I have gotten back to work in the quilt shop and have a few things to share with you...
...A New Fabric Collection...Kansas Winter is a new fabric collection to the quilt shop. It was actually released last summer but is just now making its debut here at Cross Country Quilt Barn. It is on sale and moving fast!

I consider kits the perfect "retirement plan" or "rainy day project". I stock up on all the kits I love and then bring them out one at a time. They are so much fun to collect!
