Welcome and a warm hello! This is Good Wishes Quilts ~ my online shop of modern, happy Christmas stockings and holiday decorations.
I'm Anne Schneider, and everything you see here is handmade by me.
I work in my studio in the sunny Canadian Okanagan, with a pretty view of horse fields and the mountains. I've been happily stitching and shipping handmade goodies around the world since I launched Good Wishes Quilts in 2011.
My shop is the culmination of years of work and play.
In my early days, I worked as a seamstress in a bridal shop. Wow, I got to make the most adorable flower girl dresses from scratch. I also got to work alongside a tiny, talented woman from Yugoslavia named Rosie, who could work magic with a needle and thread. Needless to say, many tips and tricks were learned!
I now have a Clothing and Textiles degree with distinction, and have taken Advanced Improvisational Quilting with acclaimed textile artist Denyse Schmidt (my quilting idol). I've also attended the Maiwa Textile Symposium in Vancouver, where I spent two days with quilters from the historic and famous quilting community of Gee's Bend, Alabama. What a treat.
I'm so grateful to all the awesome places that have featured my textile products:
Good Morning America, on ABC TV
Canada's Style at Home magazine
The Etsy Blog (read it here: https://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2013/homemade-for-the-holidays/)
Purchase my textile products here through my website, or online in my Etsy shop. Follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter too.
Every product I make comes with many good wishes for a long and happy life.
Very best wishes,
