forget-me-knots quilt shop Michelle Hagglund heard that the local quilt shop was for sale and, her interest piqued, she bought the store in 1999. She and her staff make sure to keep the store updated and filled with interesting displays and fabric choices. Located in the heart of historic Bandon, Oregon, Forget–MeKnots is dedicated to offering quilters and sewing enthusiasts a wide selection of fabrics, threads, notions, books and other needs. They offer classes for beginners and those with years of experience. They are excited about opening the “Retreat Center” located on the second story of the building they bought eight years ago. The 2800-square-foot apartment has been converted to accommodate eight people who can relax in this charming seaside town and bond there while quilting, sewing or doing other crafts in a relaxed, cozy environment. Michelle loves to get to know her customers and see their projects completed. An avid quilter herself, she welcomes the occasional opportunities she has to do a little quilting herself.
