Logo design

We are fortunate to know a talented and enthusiastic college student named Jenny Powell who is studying graphic design and typography at Texas State University. We hired her for a little project...our logo. We asked her to combine the quilting and railroad tracks themes because our shop is located within site of the railroad tracks in told town Tomball and is part of the Relics by the Railroad complex.
Jenny had several designs for us to choose from. It came down to two. We were torn between a cute little train engine logo she made up with the name of the shop and spools of thread, and the crossed needles you see above. In the end we decided on this one, with the crossed needles, because it was clean, clear and would fit better on multiple medias. We think she did a great job. If you would like hire her to design a logo for your business you can contact her at .
One more thing! We have a phone number now 281-516-7515.


  1. Great logo! Clean, crisp, and easily recognizable. Now - will you have lots of batiks and brights? If so, I'll start saving some money!

  2. We are not leaking any information about our fabric lines. We want to have a "big reveal" when we open!
    We have been ordering fabrics and things over the last week. Jim Salinas ( the Moda rep) was a wealth of information just as you promised!
