About Us:  Your Quilting Resource Partner

Together creating beautiful quilting treasures

We are a Small Business with Big Dreams!

Bear Creek Quilting Company began when our owner, Shari, started quilting.  She was admittedly intimidated by quilt shops as a new quilter.  She also wasn't able to find the quilting supplies she needed without traveling to multiple locations.  And, she often found the quality of products available were inconsistent.

Shari wanted to fill the void and create a robust resource for quilters.  She set out to bring fellow hobbyists high-quality quilting products at a fair price.  In 2010, Bear Creek Quilting Company was founded as an online business, with only a few bolts of fabric and a couple fat quarter bundles.

Since then, Shari has grown the business to be one of the leading online resource centers for quilters in the United States.  Bear Creek Quilting Company is a family owned and operated business to this day, now with many talented staff to assist with the day-to-day operations.

Our Retail Location and Showroom

In 2019, we opened our retail location in Lebanon, Oregon.  Our goal was to allow customers to meet our Customer Service Specialist, access speciality items not sold in our online store and provide Local Pickup of orders. 

In the same building, we do everything from processing online orders, managing our warehouse and operating our Machine Quilting Long Arm Service.

Machine Quilting Long Arm Service

As Bear Creek Quilting Company continued to grow, we listened to the needs of our customers.  We heard that quilters wanted a Long Arm Service they could trust.  We responded by purchasing two Long Arm Quilting Machines, making the service available to customers nationwide.

When you send your quilt to us, we handle it with extreme care.  When we are done, we ship it back with the layers stitched together in a beautiful machine quilting design.  Together, we complete your creation with love.
