Julianne Walther, President and Founder

Award winning quilt artist, Julianne Walther, has been sewing since childhood and creating quilts since 1995.


Julianne holds a BA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Master of Arts degree from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. She is an active member of Capital Quilters Guild in Raleigh, NC, and also belongs to the Piecemeal Quilters Bee. She has created hundreds of quilts, including several each year for charities through the Guild.

In 2006, Patchwork Memories, Inc.® was commissioned by the Town of Cary in North Carolina to create a customized t-shirt quilt commemorating the 30th anniversary of their famous Lazy Days Arts and Crafts Festival.

In 2007, Julianne was awarded the Annual Business Education Scholarship from the Women Business Owners’ Network of Cary in NC.

In 2009, Julianne's quilt Hope in Cotton was chosen to be a part of the Manifest Hope: DC Art Exhibit in Washington, DC during the Presidential Inauguration.

In 2010, Julianne started an annual Quilt Raffle to raise money for the charity Smile Train.

In 2013, Julianne opened Cary Quilting Company, our sister company which carries a full range of quilting fabric, notions, and classes for all your quilting needs.

Julianne is also a mom to four children: Harrison, Bryce, Drew, and Avery. Julianne’s husband Justin is a proud supporter of her work. Julianne delights in being surrounded by fabric and quilting during "school hours" and being surrounded by her family when she's away from the studio.

Marilyn Gervais, Lead Quilter

Marilyn taught herself to sew on an old Singer as a young mother of two… making clothing for them and herself. She took her first quilt class in 1980 and she has been ‘hooked’ on quilting ever since. Her first quilt was a log cabin quilt and remains to this day to be one of her all-time favorite patterns.

Marilyn has a Bachelor of Science in Education with a K – 9 certification, and additional post graduate credits in Administration and Counseling. She has a NC Real Estate License and is a Certified Personal Life Coach.

Marilyn is a native of Detroit, Michigan. She and her husband moved to NC in 1992 – and they consider themselves North Carolinians now.  When they first moved down to NC all of their 5 children were scattered around the globe from Switzerland to the Persian gulf with the Navy, to school in California and 2 living in Ohio. Now all the children have come to roost in NC. Three are married and Marilyn is the proud ‘Nana’ of 6 grandchildren.

Marilyn is greatly enjoying leading the team of talented quilters in the Patchwork Memories Quilting Studio.
