About: Threads Run Thru It is owned and operated by Steve and Lori Clayton.  The Claytons retired from the United States Navy in 1990, Lori as a Navy Nurse and Steve as a Chief Warrant Officer.  In 2003, they moved to their farm in Phenix, Va, and built a log home. Lori was looking for ways to keep busy. In 2004 she purchased a commercial embroidery machine and started “Threads Run Thru It” from her home. Lori’s embroidery business was doing well, but she knew there was more she could be involved with to stay busy. In 2007, they purchased a Gammill Longarm Quilting machine. In 2008, they upgraded to the Statler Stitcher computerized version. By this time, her business had taken over their home, consuming nearly 1500 feet of the 3000-foot house. In March 2010, Steve said enough is enough and in April 2010, he started construction on their quilt shop. “She wanted her shop built so bad that she helped me pour footings,” Steve said.

Lori’s mother had taught her to sew early in life and through the years she made hundreds of items such as shirts, dresses, valances, table cloths and runners, curtains, costumes.  “You name it, I tried to sew it,” Lori shared.  In the mid 1980s, she learned to quilt.  In the back of her mind, she dreamed of owning her own quilt shop someday and now, her dream is reality.  On Nov 29th, 2010, they opened this quilt shop.

Lori shares, “The good Lord has blessed us more than one can imagine. Our health is good, we have great friends, we are members of Midway Baptist Church and have four wonderful children.  Jessica  graduated from nursing school in Lynchburg, VA. and now works in Richmond. Gus (married to Grace) is a sailor in the United States Coast Guard stationed in NJ.  Andrea (married to James) is a Nurse in Fredericksburg, VA. And Casey (married to Matt) is a teacher in Arizona.  We have four grandsons, Eli, Silas, Will, and Wes, and one granddaughter, Ella. What a treasure it is to have such beautiful grandchildren.”
