In 2019, Suzanne celebrated 30 years!
Suzanne’s Quilt Shop opened in 1988 to provide quilting supplies and classes in Palm Beach County. Owner Suzanne Leimer, a home economics teacher, dreamed of one day owning a shop when she made her first quilt in 1983. The first shop was 1,100 square feet in the back corner of a shopping center. This year Suzanne is celebrating 30 years!
Royal Palm Beach
Suzanne was the only employee, and students, family and friends helped make it a reality. Though hard to find, quilters sought her and supported her venture. In 1995 Suzanne’s moved to its location on the main street of Royal Palm Beach. Suzanne wondered how long it would take to fill the 2,100 square feet, but soon the shop expanded fabric inventory and class offerings.
In 1998 Suzanne established a website, More than 6,000 items are available to ship worldwide through her site, which is updated daily. Features include a key word search, design wall, wish list, shop newsletter and photos of events. Register online for our eNewsletter to learn of shop happenings, online specials and for the monthly free fabric drawing. Recently a blog, Suzy Sayz has been added. Suzanne’s takes part in the Fab Shop Hop, and Patchwork Party, and Quilt Gallery Shops too.
