Founded in 2006, Three Bears Quilting is an award winning, professional long arm quilt business located in the quaint village of Oriental, North Carolina.  Our non smoking, pet free "quilting cottage" is located on ​the property of our historic Bed and Breakfast, The Cartwright House.  We welcome your visits to our studio by appointment only and are within a short drive from New Bern, Beaufort, Morehead City and Atlantic Beach.​

You can always send your quilts to our secure Post Office Box.  Please review our shipping instructions.  Or better yet, book a stay at The Cartwright House and meet with Margaret about your quilt.  We'll ship it back to you completed.

Borders, borders, borders! Three Bears Quilting can frame your quilt any number of ways. Many of the quilts in this gallery have won awards.
