Material Girls Quilt Shoppe to expand

WICHITA — Material Girls Quilt Shoppe is expanding in the Travel Air Building at 535 W. Douglas in Delano.

The shop currently has 3,175 square feet. Co-owner Jo Degner says there’s a front door, which she says has a great wow factor, and a back door. That area doesn’t have as much of a wow, she says, because it’s now used to hold classes.

A new 700 square feet will allow the classes to move, which will free space by the back door. Degner says it will feature more beautiful fabric to sell.

“That’s what we like to do is buy fabric to sell,” she says.

Cherisse Taylor of Occidental Management, which owns the Travel Air Building, handled the deal.

Degner is looking forward to the addition because of what it means for the back door area.

“It’ll be just as inviting coming in the back as it is the front.”
