History:

Built in 1920, the Randall Creamery reflects a Transitional Brick Commercial Style. Popular between 1910-1935.   In addition to its architectural style, the Randall Creamery also reflects a transition whereby technological innovations allowed and required farmers to consolidate dairy processing into centralized locations. Prior to this, dairy farmers often had a means of local vertical production where they raised, fed and milked the dairy cows. Instead of sending the milk elsewhere, the farmers then processed the cow milk into cream, butter and milk on-site. This changed by 1900 where the creamery gradually eclipsed localized farm production of cow milk. Within Minnesota, several dairy cooperatives established creameries in the 1910s and 1920s. By consolidating the production and processing of cow milk, individual farmers could collectively compete with established industries.

Today:

Starting a quilt shop has always been a dream for us. Frequently, we would drive by the historic Creamery in Randall, located off US HWY 10, nestled in the heart of Minnesota’s picturesque lakes area, dreaming of the potential this building could have. When the opportunity arose to purchase it, we knew we had to jump on it! This was our opportunity to start a business focusing on three of our favorite things, Quilting, Crafts and Food! Sewing has always been a passion for Linda. Starting at the age of five, she began with Barbie clothes. Soon her expertise expanded, and she grew up sewing the bulk of her wardrobe, including her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses. Linda also worked as a tailor, which she still frequently does for friends and family. She purchased an embroidery machine a few years ago and has enjoyed making projects for her children and grandchildren. Owning her own quilt shop and spending her time sewing is Linda’s retirement dream come true. Linda’s passion for sewing rubbed off on Janelle, who started sewing at the young age of eight. Starting with 4-H projects, Janelle spent hours learning the fundamentals of pattern reading and how to perfect top stitching. Unfortunately for Janelle, the bustle of life and career took over after graduation. Thankfully though, years ago, she re-visited the hobby she had missed for too long….sewing. Since then, Linda and Janelle have enjoyed touring quilt shops and finding new projects to create! We are blessed to be doing our hobby everyday and sharing our ideas and passion with all our customers.  Thank you for visiting us at our store, or online!  We hope you will be back soon.
