About Us

Hi!  I am Marlene Wymenga born and raised on a small farm in rural Southwestern Ontario.  I graduated from college as a Dental Assistant and after 2 1/2 years went back to school to get my license in Dental Hygiene.  I have worked as a Dental Hygienist for almost 30 years.  After the dentist I was working with for 26 years decided to retire and sell the practice I decided now might be the time to pursue my passion of owning a quilt shop.

I have had the shop Pastime Pieces for about 5 years, first doing it online.  When customers wanted to come and touch the fabric I opened a small section of my home for them to drop in.  Open Houses periodically increased my customer base and  when I outgrew that area we renovated the basement into a shop.  I now have 2 floors of fabric, kits, patterns, wool and notions.   I have also designed some patterns -- Growth Charts, Peek-a-Boo quilts and some wool projects.

I have always loved keeping busy with my hands and thank God for the talent He has given me.  As a young girl my mother and grandmother taught me how to knit, crochet, sew, embroider and the list goes on.  Even though I enjoyed being  a Dental Hygienist I am thrilled today that I get to do what I love every day.  I thank my husband for supporting my adventure 100 %.

I have been married to the same wonderful husband for 32 years.  We have four children ( 2 girls, 2 boys) and 4 cute little grandsons.

I am a destination shop so I ask that you call before you come as I do not have set hours.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

Piecefully yours,
