Mary’s Quilted Memories is located in Dover, Ohio. It is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, Mark and Mary Rufener.
We’ve been creating custom Memory Quilts for our customers since 2006, but Mary’s quilt making experience dates back much farther.
Started as a family tradition, Mary’s grandmother, mother, and her aunts would make T-Shirt Memory Quilts as graduation gifts for their children and grandchildren. Proudly displayed at graduation parties, the quilts are always admired and enjoyed. Seeing such an emotional reaction to the quilts, Mary started making them for friends as well.
Mary gleaned her sewing skills from generations of quilts makers. Growing up and living on the fringe of Amish Country in rural Ohio, she understands that only high grade materials coupled with skilled craftsmanship can create premium quality products.
As the demand for these treasured gifts grew, it became apparent that Mary’s talent could be the foundation of a unique business.
Mark added his experience as a Product Development Engineer to streamline the manufacturing processes to ensure the quilts are of the highest quality while still being affordable.
Our goal is to create your keepsake just the way you want it. You can custom order your quilt using our standard sizes and colors or call Mary personally to create your entirely unique treasure.
Let Mary take your T-Shirts and your memories and weave them into an heirloom.
