Lexi Edmunds Saskatoon Express he coffee is always on at 4-40 Quilt Shop. Owner Jackie Tennent loves having people drop in and visit. “I’m used to having a lot of people around me as a school teacher,” said Tennent, who spent 34 years as a teacher and school administrator for the Saskatoon Public School Division. “Over the course of my career I taught Grade 2 all of the way up to Grade 8. I was born to be a teacher. Sometimes you can make a teacher, but there are other people who are absolutely born to do it. It’s just something I have a huge passion to do.” Tennent’s love for quilting is also evident. The quilts include both blankets and wall hangings. She carries all the items needed for the hobby. “Quilting is a form of art,” she said.“It’s like painting with fabric. If you look at some of the pieces that are hanging around the shop, you will see that there are a lot of things that have been done by quilters, and they are works of art.” From school teacher to entrepreneur, Tennent is a busy individual. “So many people when they get to my age are just ready to golf and relax,” she said. “I have one career already finished, and now I’ve opened up my own business.” Although Tennent no longer works at a school, her teaching days are far from over. “We are going to teach (quilting) classes in the fall,” she said. “You can take a simple class on how to read and understand patterns, and we’ll sew it. I have a small classroom in the back. And then the ladies will come with their

machines and their fabric. And we’ll get out what they need for rulers, and then I’ll show them how to cut. That’s the teaching in me.” The store is nestled in a residential community at 440 Fourth Street. Those who visit the store will find a wellstocked shop. Tennent loves the location. “Quilters find the quilt shops. We have a newspaper that’s called Country Register. Quilt shops and craft shops advertise in it, and quilters plan their journey based on where the quilt shops are. It’s not uncommon to plot vacations based on where the quilt shops are. Quilters are very dedicated people.” Tennent knows about dedication. “You have to be passionate about what you’re doing, especially for the first couple of years. I’m in here 9:30 to 5:30 six days a week. That wouldn’t be possible were I not dedicated to this store.” The quilting store seems to be a great fit for the community. She said her soft opening was fantastic. “I had friends of mine that aren’t even quilters come. One gentleman brought a bottle of wine and crackers, and another friend of mine who drives a school bus brought a pink stapler. It was crowded. We had a great time.” The store’s official opening is scheduled for March 6-8. Community members, non-quilters and guild members alike are invited. There is plenty of parking, and the atmosphere is inviting. “I’ve always got coffee on, and I’m always telling people to come in and visit with me,” she said. 4-40 Quilt Shop can be reached at 306-242-4404 or at 4-40quiltshop@sasktel.net.
