About Us

Holly Hill Quilt Designs evolved through Mary Jane Carey's love of quilting.  Coming from a long line of quilters, including her namesake - her Great-Grandmother Mary Jane - the first quilting endeavor was a quilt made in 1970 from bed sheets because quilting fabrics were not readily available at that time.   In 1995 The Christmas Shoppe opened. In addition to selling handmade Santas, thus the origin of the name, there were also quilts that were made by Mary Jane.  Since that time, the quilting side of the business has grown from a small side line selling handmade quilts to a full fledged online quilt shop with fabrics, patterns, books and notions and vending at various quilt shows across the US.  In 2010, The Christmas Shoppe vended at 14 retail shows and Holly Hill Quilt Designs had it's first wholesale show in Minneapolis for Spring Quilt Market.  November was our 2nd wholesale show in Houston.   The love of quilting, and especially quilts with applique, have warmed our hearts here at Holly Hill Quilt Designs and we hope they will warm yours too.
