Lyons Quilting was sold earlier this summer when long-time (thirteen years) proprietor Jan Rold of Longmont decided it was time to retire. She sold the business to Pinewood Springs resident Tracey Barber, who has worked at the quilt shop for nearly three years. Barber, who
has lived in Pinewood Springs for six years, worked as an accountant in California prior to moving to Colorado. After deciding it was time for a career change. She began studying wildlife biology. While earning her degree she began working at Lyons Quilting and the rest, as they say, is history.
Barber has decided to relocate the shop, which was next to Pizza Bar 66 on Main Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues, to the former Nepal Restaurant on the corner of Second Avenue and Main Street, between Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ and the Outlaw Saloon. The exterior of the building has gotten a fresh coat of paint and the interior has a complete facelift. The space is now divided into four separate rooms. Barber and her staff have been hard at work moving inventory, placing and sorting the hundreds of bolts of quilting cloth by fabric, theme, and color. The determined crew agrees they will be open and ready for customers by the morning of Thursday, August 1. Barber invites the community to drop by and check out the new digs.
