Rose Ann opened Quilter's Emporium on February 1, 2004 and immediately began to set the shop apart by offering quilters the first locally sponsored annual quilting cruises through the Port of Galveston. Each year, Quilter's Emporium hosts at least one quilting cruise with nationally known teachers. All new Janome sewing machines are provided for the quilter's convenience. Each cruise offers a variety of classes, games, events and fabulous ports of call. Many guests return year after year, verifying that they have had a wonderful time and that the event is a good value for their vacation dollar!
Quilter's Emporium is open 7 days a week. Check out the front page of the shop to see what our current hours are. Sometimes they have to change due to COVID. The Emporium hosts many events each quarter with a busy class schedule, custom designed Saturday Sampler program, Inspiration Days, and much, much more! Several Block of the Month programs are also offered each year.
