The Pine Needle
The Business of the Month for November is The Pine Needle located at N582 Poplar Road, off of Hwy 64.
The Pine Needle is owned by Lori Schmidt. Lori has been quilting for over 30 years & decided to turn her hobby into a career.
The Pine Needle studio is located on a part of what was her late husband’s family farm. The couple took an early retirement seven years ago & moved up to the family land in the town of Pine River. Her studio was soon finished, but a year later her husband passed away. Instead of moving back to Milwaukee, Lori decided to stay & pursue her new business.
The Pine Needle offers several quilting services: Medium & large over-all design stitches such as stars, hearts & leaves; stitched design patterns or straight lines; Custom outline quilting patterns; custom block & border quilting and finishing or binding.
Lori uses a computerized long-arm machine to make & finish quilts. The machines movements can be programmed by the computer or worked manually to do free motion quilting.
The Pine Needle also has quilting supplies such as threads, quilt batt, quilt backing & patterns.
The Pine Needle, it’s just one more way that makes Merrill a great place to live, work, visit and shop!
