Chalet Publishing was born while Audrey was swimming. Lap after lap she kept asking where the quilting stores were and how to plan her trip to them. As she completed her last flip turn, she pondered if others also had the same curiosity. Audrey Swales Anderson is the CEO of Chalet Enterprises which encompasses Chalet Publishing. The love of handcrafted quilts and needle crafting grew out of the need to decorate her lovely Swiss Chalet house that was built in 1887.
In July of 2012 Kyle Heath became a member of Chalet Publishing's staff. Kyle is giving the scuba diving a try also. Kyle became part owner in the company as of January 1st 2012. Hoping to keep Quilters' Travel Companion the top reference and travel guide for many years to come.
In January of 2014 Sam Loudon became a member of Chalet Publishing's staff and part owner in the company. He will soon take over most of Audrey's duties as Audrey gets closer to retirement over the next few years. He is a great addition to the team. Sam is a lover of scuba diving also and many outdoor activities.
Since the Quilters’ Travel Companion is the authority on quilt shops in North America, we thought you might want to do some shopping while at home. This web site encourages customers to browse at all times of the day or night. By having some of the book’s information on-line, we can also offer new shops a quick way of reaching potential customers between publications. Let us know if you can think of other features that we should be adding.
probably wondering how the book gets done. We start with a mailing to all
known quilt shops in January of even numbered years. Information,
requests, emails, calls and faxes start flying around Chalet Publishing from
January until April when the book goes to Johnson Printing in Boulder, CO. A proof arrives
later in April and many nights are spent pouring over the nitty gritty details
of all the shops. Finally, several large pallets of books are dropped off
mid May. We all join together at the warehouse of Chalet Publishing to repackage, stuff and ship
the books out, hopefully arriving at your doorstep early in June.
Then Audrey goes diving!
