SEATTLE WA In 1977, when Jason Yenter was in Grade 1, his mother Sharon opened In The Beginning—a fabric store on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. Located in a 400 square-foot loft space above his grandmother and aunt’s dollhouse shop, the business started small. Over time the store moved twice, with its final 6000 square-foot location on Lake City Way bursting with fabrics, friends, and fun. Jason’s involvement with fabrics and quilting grew from putting bolts away as a Grade 8 student and making his first quilt as a high school senior for a humanities project.
When In The Beginning began its fabric division in 1996, Jason designed his first collection: Atlantis. Since then Jason has created upteen collections with his patterns printed on almost 2 million yards of cotton, men’s shirts and even paper products for Michael’s. No longer finding time to sew, Jason designs quilts and produces quilt books—16 to date—often coordinating with specific fabric collections.
