Suzanne’s Quilt Shop opened in 1988 to provide quilting supplies and classes in Palm Beach County. Owner Suzanne Leimer, a home economics teacher, dreamed of one day owning a shop when she made her first quilt in 1983. The first shop was 1,100 square feet in the back corner of a shopping center. This year Suzanne is celebrating 20 years!!!!
Suzanne was the only employee, and students, family and friends helped make it a reality. Though hard to find, quilters sought her and supported her venture. In 1995 Suzanne’s moved to its location on the main street of Royal Palm Beach. Suzanne wondered how long it would take to fill the 2,100 square feet, but soon the shop expanded fabric inventory and class offerings.
