Holiday Events, Jellies, Jellies and Chef Collaboration


May this note find all well and your hearts full of joy, and that Quilter’s Comfort will be some part of your celebrations and your day to day life.

For many of us, this may be a very hectic time.  If you are on the mailing list, you know that Quilter’s Comfort participated in Holiday House and thank all who came out to support the event and my herbal business in particular.

The Quilter’s Comfort website has been updated, well mostly.  There is still work to be done and pages to link, so please bare with me as I juggle the work.  Bloomington folks please note purchase arrangements available to avoid shipping cost!

Now, I am preparing for this year’s Krista Detour Holiday Show, Market and CD Release.  Each year Krista hosts a benefit for a local non-profit.  This year it is for VIPS, Visually Impaired Preschoolers and takes place Friday, December 18, 7:00 pm in the Unitarian Universalist Church.  Visit her website at for details.

I plan to offer herbal teas, seasonings and this year have some new packaging options and gift sets. 

I also have an assortment of jellies- local beer, local coffee, herbal and some fruit jellies - Cranberry Orange and Apple Jam.  I also have some very decadently delicious Chocolate Raspberry Stout (certified organic) jam and Rose Delight (made from certified organic coconut sugar and local honey!  As you know, all are made in small batches, so are available while supplies last, or by special order.

Over the last month, just from a chance meeting, I have been exploring UPLAND Brewery’s Wheat Ale to be used by Executive Chef Padraig Cullen.  I am very excited about this collaboration and getting the details worked out to both our liking.  I love having the staff referring to me as their beer jelly lady!  So much fun and appreciation all around!  There are a few other collaborations brewing and depending on the details will unfold in 2016.

Speaking of 2016, we have the name for our new tea!  Visit our website tea page to see the name! Click Here
