Linda started The Back Door Inc. almost 46 years ago with two of her neighbors. The neighborhood ladies would get together and want to learn how to make things, and that is what launched the shop. Starting in Linda’s basement, they quickly moved to a storefront, and over the years, the shop grew, moved, and grew again several more times. Teri has been part of the shop for 36 years.

Back Door Quilts now has over 5,000 square feet, two longarm quilting machines, over 1,000 bolts of batik, thousands of bolts of reproductions, basics, and brights. There are hundreds of samples for your inspiration.
