About Peace & Applique Quilt Shop

Established 1997

These exciting shops had a humble beginning.One of Lois's daughters who lived in New York decided to grace the Weissberg family with their first grandchild.  Becoming a grandmother caused Lois to want to become a quilter.  Off she went to the Saturday PBS show to find instruction from Eleanor Burn's Quilt in a Day program. Lois created a Teddy Bear Around the World quilt for her first grandchild Erik.  That's all it took to making quilting a part of her DNA.

For one of her following birthdays, her daughter gave her an overnight quilt class at the only local quilt shop in Auburn, IL.  Gretchen and Lois met there to learn how to piece on their first large quilts, Friendship Star in a Log Cabin.  Again - that was it, now they were both hooked!
