About Us

My husband, Buz (I call him Buzzy) and I, grew up together in the same neighborhood in St. Louis, MO. We met at the age of 10. Our paths took us in different directions for the first half of our lives, but about seven years ago we reconnected......Fell in love...and that is where our story began...

Buzzy and I  married 4 years ago...During this time I read an article in one of my magazines about barn quilts. If you are not familiar with them, please visit our other website at www.heritagebarnquilts.com. I fell in love with them. I decided I wanted to start a business. We built our website and now 4 years later our business has grown so much that we needed more work space than we have at the home studio. 

The summer of 2014, I started looking for an additional space for our barn quilts. I have always loved the town of Augusta, MO and knew that this is where I wanted to be. My first place I looked at is our new location. It was wonderful..If our barn quilt business didn't keep us busy enough, I decided I wanted to open a store front as well, and that is how The Cranberry Cottage was born..

The Cranberry Cottage is in the main house and my workshop for my barn quilts is in a building behind the main house. The store is filled with cottage and farm style home decor and furniture. Since Augusta is located in wine country we do offer unique and beautiful wine decor. We are now open for business, and we hope when you are in Augusta shopping, staying at a B&B or visiting the wineries, you will stop in to see our new store.
