GRANNY Taught Us How and Heidi's Room

~ May 2013 ~

Granny’s Celebrates 35 years in Business in 2013!

Some history

Maureen and HeidiIt was the mid-1970s and the Baufeldt family bathtub was full of calico cats and toys. Little Heidi’s room was full of sewing supplies. Handmade by Maureen and a team of local ladies from the Shelburne area, these stuffed toys and country kitchenware fed the arts & crafts craze of the time.

This successful home-based business quickly outgrew its home base. So Jim and Maureen purchased the former Orange Lodge as a warehouse and employed some 40 local women to sew the goods, which were distributed across Canada and the U.S.

In the autumn of 1978, Jim renovated and a small retail operation was opened on the premises, selling Maureen’s products along with quilting fabrics and supplies.

This is the story of how Granny Taught Us How was born! The rest, as they say, is history.

Granny Taught us how and Heidi's RoomThe occasional customer is sorry to hear that we no longer carry quilting supplies, but many more marvel at how far the store has come. How over the years, Maureen and Heidi have kept the pulse of the market and customers, continuously providing a perfect mix of primitive and modern styles, a blend of country and city, all carefully selected following the principles of beauty, quality and good value. It’s what we’ve stood for and what we’re known for. We’d like to thank all our customers, old and new, near and far. You have kept us in business for 35 years, and we look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Granny Taught Us How and Heidi’s Room is open 364 days a year, from 10am to 6pm (open until 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays).
