Business Moves with Mary: New Fabric Store Opens in Columbus Friday

Kathy Willcutt is determined to keep fabric work and sewing relevant in the Golden Triangle.

Willcutt has mastered sewing through numerous training courses and nearly 45 years of practice. On Friday, she will open Magnolia Heirlooms, 404 Wilkins Wise Road, for those interested in quilting, sewing and learning more about her craft.

She will offer courses for children to adults and from beginner to expert. Interested customers can stay informed on the company’s Facebook page until the launch of the website. Customers can start their own projects with all the supplies needed to quilt, sew or embroider. It will also offer personalized monograms.

“Fabric stores are pretty hard to come by,” Willcutt said. “They are decreasing all over the country. We wanted to keep it alive and go into that area. I have been sewing for about 45 years. … It was a dream to still teach the craft and keep it alive.

Magnolia Heirlooms will be open Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In Caledonia, you will find a new cafe open this morning. The Grind, 9681 Wolfe Road, will be open Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’re looking for a caffeine buzz and need a coffee to start your day, head to The Grind for hot or iced coffee and macchiatos.
