Generation to Generation Heirlooms was originally born with the idea of providing heirlooms for children - rocking horses, cradles, push toys. I was making these for our grandchildren and wanted to handcraft these items for other parents and grandparents.
As we discussed this with my wife's BFF, Margaret, she strongly suggested that we move in the direction of heirlooms for quilters. Being a quilter herself, she knew there was a shortage of quality quilt racks and ladders available to quilters to use to display their works of art.
We took her advice and, in 2011, I started to design and craft quilt racks and ladders. In the Fall of that year, we attended a few local Quilt Shows, were very well received, and found that there truly was a need for these heirlooms.
The rest, they say, is history! Living in Manteca affords us the unique ability to venture North, South, East and West, attending Quilt Shows with great ease. We may not be able to attend every Quilt Show that is available, but we try to attend 11-12 each year in various locations. We will always hold dear to our hearts the guild members from Sonora (Sierra Quilt Guild). They were our very first Show in September, 2011. They took us under their wing, explained how things worked and made us feel so very welcome.
That's us - Generation to Generation Heirlooms - providing you with beautiful wooden creations to display your beautiful quilted creation. Our ladders, paired with your quilts, will become prized heirlooms to be treasured and then passed on to the next generation of quilters, in an effort to keep the old traditions alive.
"But LORD, You remain the same forever!
Your throne continues from
generation to generation.”
