SEATTLE WA In 1977, when Jason Yenter was in Grade 1, his mother Sharon opened In The Beginning—a fabric store on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. Located in a 400 square-foot loft space above his grandmother and aunt’s dollhouse shop, the business started small. Over time the store moved twice, with its final 6000 square-foot location on Lake City Way bursting with fabrics, friends and fun.
Jason’s involvement with fabrics and quilting grew from putting bolts away as a Grade 8 student and making his first quilt as a high school senior for a humanities project. Here are close-ups of some fabulously detailed quilts Jason made after he graduated from university and began working full-time for the family business:
The shop and the staff are wonderful xxx Had the best time at their retreat.
