The Tenneys report that in just a few weeks they have already served customers from all over the state of West Virginia and throughout the country. “Customers have visited us from as far away as Texas, Kansas, Ohio, and North Carolina. Quilters travel to shops like ours,” they said, “often on vacation or during a business trip. Selling our items and services on location, we expect growth throughout the year, including in our mail orders. We have a new website,” they said, “that will connect us with customers from all over the United States. Visitors so far have had nothing but compliments for the wide selection of things which we offer . Barbour County has always been our home,” they said, “and we hope we can give something back to the growth of our community.”
