About Us

Co-owners Hester Campbell and Ruth Fischer  are passionate about beautiful stitches that will enhance your quilt top. Their Gammill Statler (long arm quilting machine) runs daily at Contoocook QuiltWorks, on Fountain Square, downtown Contoocook, NH. 

Hester and Ruth are longtime colleagues and friends. They are both married to local boys, and they both have grit, so they can almost pass as NH natives! Both raised families here, and both have far-flung grands. They had similar career trajectories in the service of academic libraries, as book suppliers, data analysts, operational and product managers, and consultants.

Ruth and Hester have been hobby quilters for decades. In retirement, they want their days to be chock full of fabric, patterns, textures, and colors.
