Rose has been quilting since she was a little girl and has always loved it. When she married and had her first child, she wanted to find a way to work and still be at home for her kids. It was then that she and her husband Kenny opened Pohlar Fabrics. Originally, the store carried a very small amount of fabric and focused on rug weaving, but as quilting became such a popular pastime, they added more fabric and accessories. Now their store is tailored almost exclusively to quilters.
For the past 25 years Rose has run her business and raised her children. When her daughter Megan was old enough, she began managing the shop for her parents. Megan, who made her first quilt at 9 and has currently designed 21 quilt patterns including 2 BOM series of her own, brings in a younger generations perspective that has added new life to the shop.
Pohlar Fabric carries the original pattern designs of both Rose Pohlar and Megan Pohlar-McGuire. Rose specializes in purse and tote bag patterns. Megan designs quilts, and was asked to be the block pattern designer for a local shop hop two years in a row.
Rose and her family and staff have a goal to help each and every customer find exactly what they need to finish their current project or start one they’ve always dreamed of doing. Come in and find out how we can help you!
