Helping Hands Quilt Shop, Berlin’s original quilt shop, was founded in 1974 when Emanuel Mullet, tired of always having the living room filled with a quilt in frame and no room to entertain guests, suggested that his wife Alma move her quilting hobby into his recently vacated building. The hobby soon grew into a business and at the age of 58, after raising a family of nine children, Alma Mullet cleaned, painted and hung out a little sign which read “Helping Hands Quilt Shop”. As the business prospered it became apparent that more space was needed. In 1997 the public library next door was torn down and a new building was built to accommodate the quilt shop’s expansion, and remains Helping Hands’ current location. In May 2011, Helping Hands was purchased by the Dennis Mullet family. Along with the experienced staff members they hope to preserve the Amish Country quilting traditions in Berlin while at the same time growing to accommodate new ideas in the quilting market. [more..]
