Welcome to The Quilting Barn in the heart of Bridge Creek, OK! I am Ethel VanBuskirk. (My friends call me "E" or "EV"!) I am a passionate quilter, people lover, homestyle cook and creator.
The Quilting Barn is a fulfillment of a dream of mine to share what I believe to be my God given talents, giftings, resources and a lifetime of incredible friendships. This combobulation of my truest heart's desires has given quilters a new "happy place" to share their own special stories and creativity among others who have similar interests.
My "Prince", Jim, and I live on 10 acres in rural Grady County, OK. While building our dream home, we lived in our 1400 sq foot "barn'dominium. (Felt we needed a little better description of our barn home. ha ha) Anyway...we moved out of "The Barn" and into the 3400 square foot home 6 years ago but never forgot the place just down the driveway where we got our start together. You see, The Barn was our first home. It was where we got engaged, shared the introduction of our lives, our adult children, our family and friends with each other.
As we started to create our dream of the ultimate rural life, I found myself wanting to share our home and everything that I loved with others. Thus the creation of The Quilting Barn. With the great remodeling knowledge and determination of "The Prince", the help of some AMAZING friends, and my desire to share all the things and people that I loved SEW much...it was only natural to turn my hobbies of Quilting and Cooking into a new business.
