Kathie Ferland-Medina knew very little about quilting, or the quilt business, when she found herself suddenly running a quilt shop eight years ago.

Kathie Ferland-Medina, owner of Kathie's Quilt Shoppe in Sanford, with one of her designs, "Paradise Beach.
"It's the Sports Illustrated of quilting and we made it into the swimsuit issue," said Ferland-Medina. "It's going to be a three- or four-page spread."
The spring Quilt Sampler is still being assembled, and won't be on newsstands until May, but the magazine recently announced the 11 quilt shops that will be profiled, including Kathie's.
"What made Kathie's stand out?
On Wednesday, as Ferland-Medina talked about her shop, a group of quilters was using a room upstairs to work on projects. Someone was having a birthday, so the quilters all brought food.
Quilting groups can use the space any time they want without a fee, Ferland-Medina said. It's part of the philosophy she's used to grow her business: Make it as easy and stress-free as possible for people to quilt, and to be in the store.
"I'd only charge a group money if I had an instructor there. I'd rather have people in my store than somewhere else," Ferland-Medina said.
Ferland-Medina said she already has at least one regular customer who drives two hours one-way to visit her shop.
The article will include information on how to order a kit to make an "Almost Paradise" quilt designed by Ferland-Medina. It's based on another of her quilt designs, "Paradise Beach," inspired by the beach in Mexico where Ferland-Medina met her husband.
Ferland-Medina, 45, worked as a paralegal and in human resources before becoming a quilt shop partner about eight years ago. She was not a passionate quilter at the time, but had always considered herself "crafty."
When the partnership dissolved about six months after the shop opened, Ferland-Medina became determined to examine the business and see if she could make it work. She said she had a "great staff" and was encouraged by that.
"I brought in more fabric and more crafty stuff, started having a lot of classes, and getting involved in the community, in charitable events," said Ferland-Medina, a native of Sanford.
