[December 08, 2009]  Main Street Lincoln welcomes another new store to downtown Lincoln: The Log Cabin Quilt Shop. The owners, Donna and Tim Becke, are pictured with Barb Reinwald, president of Main Street Lincoln on left. Just in time for Christmas, the quilt shop opened officially on Saturday at 118 N. McLean St.

Donna's interest in quilting is a hometown story in that she was inspired by her grandmother, who was a quilter and whose sewing machine sits in the store's front window.

The store was named after Abe Lincoln and the log cabin quilt block. The traditional log cabin quilt begins with a red center block to represent the hearth of the home or heart of the family.

The Beckes have many interesting things planned for 2010, including classes. Donna has learned to "keep it simple, start small, look for new ideas, and try, try, try again.

Main Street Lincoln is happy to have another hometown family start a new business in the Courthouse Square Historic District. Others welcomed are Ed and Rhonda Malkowski at the Owl's Roost, Melissa Hyde and stylists at Absolute Harmony and Day Spa. The organization is also pleased to have AAA Siding and Roofing and Dickson's Tacos and More on Kickapoo Street.
