The Quilted Crow was launched as "The Quilted Garden", an on-line shop in July of 1999 -
starting out with 50 items in inventory.
Wendy Daugherty started the business out of her love for quilting, but in 2001, with 5 active
sons and a very successful growing business, Wendy decided to sell and focus her time on her
family. So in April of 2001, Wendy sold the on-line business to Marianne Kennedy.
November of 2002 Marianne opened up the "brick and mortar" part of the
shop in Boxborough MA adjacent to a tea shop . . . what could go better
than "tea and quilts"? She changed the name to "The Quilted Crow"
to reflect her love of folk art. Unfortunately, the tea shop
closed September 2009.
But, fortunately for us, and for you, we quickly took over that space and have doubled the size of The Quilted Crow!
Marianne decided to sell The Quilted Crow so that she
could spend more time with her family and in July of 2006, Donna Ellis
and Linda Ficaro purchased The Quilted Crow.
May of 2007 Sue Loring joined with Donna Ellis to form a new
partnership. Since then, The Quilted Crow has grown in size and
reputation to be known as a place of learning and inspiration for many
quilters and needle work enthusiasts alike.
As of January 2011, Sue became the sole owner of The Quilted
December 1, 2015, The Crow moved to its new home at 626 Main Street in
Bolton, MA. Our new location is bigger and brighter with a larger
classroom. We look forward to many years of inspiration with the help
of our excellent staff and some of
the most talented teachers in New England. Our goal is to help you
create works of art and family heirlooms that
will bless family and friends for generations.

Rick, Sue & Buddy
The charming warmth of quilts always attracted me and I envied those
families who possessed such heirlooms. In 1997 I realized I had more time to myself as my
son became more independent. I stumbled across HGTV's Simply Quilts and
convinced a friend to take a beginner quilt class with me. The obsession birthed and grew quickly
with every quilt show and shop hop I could find!
At the urging of my quilt teacher, I joined one quilt guild and then a
second...and third! (Once per month wasn't enough!) Family vacations always
included side trips to local quilt shops, much to my son's dismay! My
husband, Rick, feeds my addiction on a regular basis seeking out new shops for me to explore
where ever we go. He's a keeper!!!!!!! (The key is to feed him
well while traveling!)
Becoming an employee of The Quilted Crow in January 2006 was such a
thrill! It wasn't work at all! (And to think I got PAID for it too!!!) Life was good!
customers and friends that visit me at work make it most
Donna's invitation to team up with her was an exciting
thought. Rick's strong support for this next step of my life made the
decision even more enticing.
It's wonderful to be able to work at something I am so
that I am the sole owner of 'The Crow', Rick, my soul mate and best
friend, spends as much time as he can helping out and
providing daily encouragement.
Why Folk Art?
While we feel a strong love for folk
art, for its connection to our American heritage, and as an art form
which represents generations who "learned
at the knee", during the past few years, we have broadened our palette
to include batiks, flannels, homespuns, brights and more contemporary
fabrics and projects.
offer fabrics, quilt patterns, block-of-the-month-kits, punchneedle
supplies, needle felting supplies, wool projects, and kits galore in a
wide range of tastes. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is
available to assist and encourage you with your special projects.
