About Us

Block Therapy Quilt Shop opened in 2011 with a goal to inspire quilters of all skill abilities, help them improve their skills, and contribute to their stitching enjoyment and success. Located in the coastal town of Gautier, MS, Block Therapy is the largest sewing center and quilt shop on Mississippi's Gulf Coast. 
 
Owner, Joan Tscheulin,  has been an avid seamstress and quilter since she was in her teens. She loves the time honored skill of quilting, as well as the wonderful and diverse group of people in the quilting community. Joan's vision for Block Therapy can be summed up in three words: Fun, Fascination, and Fulfillment.

Joan believes that hobbies should be fun to pursue and should relieve the daily stresses of life. She's a big fan of the entire creative process of quilting, from fabric selection and color coordination to piecing and binding, and enjoys instilling in others her fascination for the journey. For Joan, there's nothing more fulfilling than making new friends, finishing and passing on a new project, or seeing the joy in others as they learn and succeed.

With a friendly, knowledgeable crew, and lots of enthusiasm for her work, Joan is thrilled to provide the Gautier area with high quality fabrics, great education and instructors, superior customer service, and ongoing support!
