About Us

Hi! I am Marlene Wymenga and I live and own a quilt shop in the small town of Blenheim in Southwestern Ontario.  We are approx. 10 min off of Hwy 401 between London and Windsor. 

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 would be the time to pursue my passion of owning a quilt shop.

I started Pastime Pieces as a online shop first, then renovated the basement  in my home to receive customers. I soon outgrew that space so I opened up more space on the main floor of my home.  In 2015-2016 we built my dream quilt shop.  A 2 story red barn with upstairs loft used for classes. 
I enjoy designing and have  designed some patterns  for childrens'  growth charts,  baby quilts and my favorite wool applique 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.  I am thrilled  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 41 years. We have four children ( 2 girls, 2 boys) and 5 grandsons and one little grandaughter.

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

Piecefully yours,
