Judie Rothermel


In 2013 we celebrated Judie Rothermel's first 25 years as a fabric design innovator, specializing in "Aunt Grace" 1930s fabric reproductions and designs from the Civil War era and related periods. She creates beautiful stories from classic designs from classic designs and colorations, while incorporating subtle variations to give them an updated look. Since her first collection for Marcus Fabrics in 1987, Judie has developed a strong following, primarily among quilters who look to her designs for their historical accuracy as well as their visual appeal.

She began collecting antique textiles, quilt tops and quilts in the early 1970's, along with her husband, Bob. Together they traveled, visited museums and bought quilts. In 1976, Judie and Bob opened their Quilt Shoppe in Canton, OH, giving them a place to house their growing collection, selling quilts occasionally.
