Lori's Country Cottage 

Owner, Lori Bosecke, opened Lori’s Country Cottage, in 1993 as a fabric store. The store featured dress making fabrics and a handful of quilting fabrics and tools. In the process of setting up her business, a sales representative predicted the store would evolve into a quilt shop before the year was up.  He was right. After replacing the dress making fabric with quilting fabric and replenishing the quilting supplies, that's exactly what happened! 

Lori enjoys the entertainment part of the business, such as planning events that are educational, promotional and fun. Her creative nature and innate ability to quickly solve project problems is much appreciated here at the store! She hosts special store events about every 6 weeks, including retreats.

Lori continues to increase her quilting knowledge and skills by attending Quilt Market each Fall and Spring so she can improve the store and share news of the latest industry trends, products, and technologies. 

Lori’s interests include quilting, sewing, crafting, cooking, gardening, travelling, marketing, and entertaining, but her biggest passion is her family, including her husband, daughter, son-in-law, son, and two granddaughters.
