Picket Fence Quilt Co. moves to Crossroads at Central and Ridge

Almost a decade after opening her Picket Fence Quilt Co. at the northeast corner of Maple and Ridge, Lisa Johnson has left the center.

“It’s a great center,” she says.

Since Chipotle Mexican Grill opened, though, Johnson says parking has become an issue.

“I hate to say it.”

Picket Fence has moved up the road to the southeast corner of Central and Ridge in the same Crossroads shopping center as Gordmans.

“It’s the same size,” Johnson says of her approximately 2,400 square feet.

The store sells 100 percent cotton fabric for quilt making along with patterns and books. There are classes as well, and Johnson says her staff is available to help with quilting issues.

Though she didn’t necessarily want to move, Johnson says the new space is great.

“Our store is really wide open.”
