Get to Know Hazel Miller

As a young woman, Hazel moved to Seattle where she fell in love and married Morris Miller. Together they owned and operated a very successful business called Seattle Quilt Manufacturing Company, makers of the famous “comfy” sleeping bag. 

After many years they sold the business, retired, and enjoyed the last 30 years of their lives in Edmonds, WA. They enjoyed frequenting Claire’s in downtown Edmonds, were avid salmon sport fishermen, and committed community members.
