Proprietor: Linda Jones
Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday 10-5; Saturday 10-3
Years in Operation:This month in June we will celebrate our third anniversary!
What do you sell? Fabric, thread, patterns, notions, books, etc. for quilting and crafting.
What inspired you to enter this business? This is something I have always wanted to do so after retiring as an English teacher from West Greene and after enjoying retirement for a few years I knew that if I really wanted to open a quilt shop I needed to “step out” and do it.
What do you love the most about your business? JOf course I love the beautiful material and the quilts that can be made from the fabric, but I just love the ladies that come in and share stories about their quilts and the loved ones for whom they are making something. A friend told me to never underestimate what you have made someone by your own hand.
Do you have any upcoming events/specials that you would like featured? Our anniversary celebration will be Saturday, June 8; I will be a vendor at a quilt show in Cumberland Maryland on June 21, 22, 23 sponsored by the Schoolhouse Quilt Guild; I will also be a vendor at a quilt show in Washington, PA in November sponsored by the Martha Washington Quilt Guild; please check on Facebook about upcoming classes and teachers; new Christmas fabric will be available in July.
What is one little known fact about your business or about yourselves that you would like to share? The Pine Tree Quilt Shop was not named for the former Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Bridgeport, WV. This was a really nice little shop, but this Pine Tree Quilt Shop was named for the quilt by my beloved grandmother Savannah Tennant made. The quilt is on display at the shop.

“Re-Discovering Eden” is an art and historic architecture project of Waynesburg Prosperous & Beautiful celebrating 200 years of Waynesburg history. In 1796, the five trustees of the newly organized county of Greene purchased a tract of land named “Eden” for their new county seat of Waynesburg. They laid out a grid of streets and alleys, each 180 feet square. This original grid is intact today, as is much of the early architecture.
Local artist Kyle Hallam’s bright, playful vision of Waynesburg is awash in color with a variety of techniques applied to historic photos. The color invites us to consider the architectural details with a fresh eye, recognizing features regularly taken for Granted.
Walk our streets, look at our buildings and think about the past, present and future. Have fun identifying the vintage photos. Some buildings are quite changed; others not at all. Notice the details and marks of time. Much of the early architecture remains. Learn about the people and events that happened here. Then gaze into the future. What can we do to keep the special “sense of place” that is Waynesburg?
The tour is enhanced by Memory medallions that exist throughout the community. Memory medallions use a barcode reader with your smart phone to retrieve location information, video, audio, text and images. Be on the look– out for the bronze Waynesburg Prosperous & Beautiful medallion plaques.
