The Common Thread Mercantile was born in Milburn, IL in 2010. The shop was in a barn on an estate founded in 1847 and surrounded by flower gardens and a tree farm. What a setting! In 2015 I moved back to Nitro, WV where I was born and opened another shop. So rewarding.

Moving on to another life chapter, the storefront is now limited to doing online sales, classes and vending at quilting and craft events.
