A Touch of Thread
We're here to spread information about upcoming store events, classes, deals, and daily happenings. A Touch of Thread was founded in 2003 by Martha Creasy, a fourth-generation quilter from Zanesville, Ohio. Her passion for quilting sparked when her mother opened a small quilt shop in the quaint village of Dresden, Ohio in 1991. In 1995, Martha purchased her first Gammill longarm quilting machine, and it was “love at first stitch”. Shortly thereafter, she began custom quilting for a handful of clients from her mother’s shop. This small group quickly blossomed into a large base of loyal clientele. Upon a visit to the Gammill headquarters in West Plains, Missouri nearly 10 years later, Martha was so impressed she decided to take her love of longarm quilting and open her own authorized Gammill and Statler dealership. Shortly after opening, her husband Doug made the business his full time career after 23 years in electric motor repair industry. Doug delivers and sets up our machines, as well as services them. Now growing with the times, we are excited to not only be a dealer of the Gammill Statler Stitcher Machines, but also Babylock domestic and embroidery machines.
