The Tilted Quilters focuses on selling top brand sewing machines,
current fabric from many different fabric designers, and notions of all kinds.
The shop hosts classes for all skill levels, provides embroidery projects galore,
and is a place where friends meet to spend time together
and create beautiful projects.
Dawn and Brad Burns opened Tilted Quilters in October 2021. Dawn, a dedicated quilter, and her husband Brad saw the need for a new quilt shop on the Westside of Jacksonville after the only local quilt shop closed. The opening of their quilt shop provides Westside residents a convenient option rather than driving miles away to other northeast Florida shops.
Behind the Name
You may be wondering how the shop came to be named "Tilted Quilters." Dawn, along with her mother, her sister-in-law, and a friend, were going on a cross country, seven-day quilting shop hop. As they and their sewing machines were being screened and searched at security, a TSA security agent asked if they were a quilting group and what their group name was. Dawn replied, "The Tilted Quilters," which was a spin on a name she gave of a quilt she had recently sewed and badly messed up. Her response quickly became an ongoing joke. So, when Brad asked what the name of the shop would be, Dawn had an easy answer: "The Tilted Quilters."
We believe that God gives each of us unique talents, gifts, and abilities to use for God's glory. We know our shop would not be possible if not for our Heavenly Father. We have seen the hand of God moving in the opening of our shop. Many, many hours of prayer and wisdom seeking have gone into our efforts. We have seen God open many doors and close several others. We believe it is in God's will for our quilt shop to flourish and to praise Him day in and day out. Our desire is that when customers walk in our door, or shop online, they will immediately know The Tilted Quilters is not your typical quilt shop.
At The Tilted Quilters, we have a passion for quilting, sewing, embroidering, and bag making. One of the goals of The Tilted Quilters is to share this passion with experienced and inexperienced sewers alike. Our mission is to create a "Happy Quilting Place” for our customers and to inspire their creativity. Our wish is that when customers walk into our store, they feel encouraged by our staff to take their craft to the next level. Another important goal of The Tilted Quilters is to give back to our community by fostering our shared passion for sewing and through community charitable efforts. We also desire to have a positive influence in our customers' lives.
