Farewell New Hampshire

Dear Friends of Keepsake Quilting,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we will be closing our Keepsake Quilting and Pineapple Fabrics stores in Center Harbor, New Hampshire on February 28, 2020. When we purchased Keepsake Quilting in April, 2018, we had high hopes that we would be able to restore the Center Harbor location to its former status as “America’s Favorite Quilt Shop” and keep the location open even though we are based in North Carolina. Despite our best efforts to increase store hours, remerchandise, introduce special sales and add a beautiful new Pineapple Fabrics shop (which received a Better Homes & Gardens Top Shop award), not to mention the incredible support from our customers in and around New Hampshire, we have found that we can no longer remain in Center Harbor.

The good news is that both Keepsake Quilting and Pineapple Fabrics are thriving. Keepsake’s revamped catalogs and online sales are gaining ground every month and Pineapple Fabrics is growing ever-more popular. Our decision to move all of the manufacturing and fulfillment elements of the business to Archdale, North Carolina a few months ago is increasing efficiencies and further securing the future of both businesses. And, we are committed to moving the businesses further into the digital space. Rest assured that Keepsake Quilting and Pineapple Fabrics are not going anywhere. We are simply dealing with a set of circumstances that makes centralizing all of our operations in North Carolina our best option.

We would like to thank all of our employees and customers who have stuck by us through this transition. Change is never easy and we deeply appreciate the loyalty you all have shown to us. There is still time to visit us in Center Harbor. Stay tuned for more information about special sales and other events at this location through email and social media.

Just remember, that even as we bid Center Harbor farewell, we will still strive to be “America’s Favorite Quilt Shop” through our catalogs and website, and will be here to serve you 24/7.

Thank you
