Dolores Smith is the creative force behind Timeworn Toolbox Designs.  While making their annual trip to Paducah, she and her friend Sarah Maxwell, decided to finally open the quilt shop they had always dreamed of, and Homestead Hearth was est. in 2002.  The shop has become a must-see destination in central Missouri, recognized as a Top Ten shop by Quilt Sampler magazine!


Dolores has co-authored several books published by Kansas City Star, and is working on a fifth one with the Kansas City Star and C&T Publishing.


Dolores has lived in Mexico, MO. most of her life. She married her best friend over 33 years ago and together they have two wonderful sons, Ryan and Kyle. Now that her youngest son Kyle has graduated college and married, she is ready to design fabrics and patterns that will coordinate with them. Her designs under the Timeworn Toolbox Designs brand will reflect her love of wool and aged, vintage fabrics.
