    What a blow for the entire community! Most town main streets are hanging on by their fingernails anyway. I hope they have insurance to rebuild.

    That is so so sad. A number of years ago that happened near here in Sun Prairie, WI. The shop downtown burned then she re-opened eventually farther out in a mall. Agree that something like this is a real blow for a business and also to your community.

    Oh my, a story like that tears at my heart. I've had places near me go out of business for other reasons, but the thought of all that fabric going up in smoke just makes me want to cry. I do hope they re-build for you too.

    Oh my, such a sad beginning to my week. I do not watch TV, so was not aware of this tragedy. My heart and prayers go out to all of them as they get through this awful thing.
    Make every day count for something!

    I'm probably 30 miles from there and that was such a bad fire. I didn't even know they had a quilt shop there. Matter of fact I've never been through their downtown. I hope they rebuild too

    That is horrible for all of the people involved. I hope all of the businesses can recover from this.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Even more sad to actually see it go up in flames. I was the last customer in the shop. Kim cut a yard of fabric
    for me and then the electric went out. My husband was the first to call 911 because he was waiting for me outside while I was shopping.
    It was the loveliest quilt shop with the nicest owners. I really hope the reopen and the town of Garrettsville, Ohio recovers from this.
    Don't find fault, find a remedy.

    I'm not far from there but never knew about that shop. So sad now that I missed it. I too hope they'll rebuild so I can visit!
    The fire was horrible. Watched on the news and posts on Facebook. So sad to lose such history.

    It must have been terrible to see the fire and know that you were the shops last customer.

    several of you mentioned that you were fairly local and did not about this shop. Getting to know where LQS are is a great reason to go on shop hops. NE Ohio has many good shops so do a google search to find many of them!!!! Or PM me and I will be happy to show you some!!!!!

    I go on at least 2 Shop Hops a year and this one was not at any of them. The next one here is the beginning of Apr and I'm not sure if I'm doing this one

    Hope no one was hurt. Boston lost 2 firefighters yesterday. Sad day around this area.

    Here's to hoping for rebuilding!

    A LQS close to me came very close to going up in flames last year. A fire started in the back of the building, which was used by the owner as a warehouse. My hubby and I were driving through town and saw the column of black smoke and as we got closer I saw that it was the LQS's building. Fortunately for them the fire was put out quickly and they had only a bit of smoke damage in the shop. Also, many, many people helpd bring all the fabric bolts out of the building so they did not get smokey. They were closed for a week for cleaning and replacing a door the was broken down by the fire crew.
