Oak Leaf Quilts opens business, in town, offering quilting notions
By Leigh Jones
Terri Firth and Nancy Ament are adding another stitch to the historical fabric of New Braunfels, returning one of the city’s landmark buildings to its former glory.
The Klappenbach Building, built in 1890, once again is the place to go for colorful fabric, needles and thread.
When friends Firth and Ament discovered the vacant mercantile building, they knew what they had to do — open a quilt shop.
“The shop just called to us,” Firth said. “It has a lot of ambiance, with fabric shelves and a big counter with brass tacks and a measuring chain. It was just what we needed.”

Customers who enter through the shop’s squeaky front door and traverse the polished wood floors are treated to friendly customer service, and of course the opportunity for a nice chat.
The walls are lined with bolts of cotton quilting fabric — some is even hand-dyed.
Shoppers also will find needles, thread, batting and wearables to tempt their inner creative geniuses.
For women, or men, intimidated by thimbles and measuring tape, the shop offers embroidered pieces and a few consignment items for sale.

In September, Firth and Ament will offer classes for beginners, intermediate-level and advanced quilters and seamstresses interested in quilting wearable items. Ament also will teach a knitting class for people who prefer to handle longer needles.
