Shop Hopping

12 10 2013

Last week Linda and I drove to New York to visit our friend, Marie. (And I gave a workshop and lectures as mentioned in my previous blog post.)

We patronized no less than 7 quilt shops on our trip! First up was Sew ‘n Place in Chambersburg, PA. We saw the billboard on Interstate 81 and used the GPS to find the shop. They were having a 20% sale, so of course we found fabric we “needed.”

In Watkins Glen we shopped at O’ Susannah’s, one of the featured shops in the current Quilt Sampler magazine.

I snapped a picture of the gorgeous quilt that is patterned in the Sampler. You can read about the magazine here.

Linda loved the samples of Jo Morton small quilts.

We shopped at the Lake Country Patchwork shop in Hammondsport housed in the old Opera House Building.

Isn’t this a clever display cabinet for fat quarters?

The shop is famous for Asian fabrics and the button bowl.

They also stock some vibrant wools!

And next door was an awesome antique shop with quilts in addition to other vintage items.

Lone Star is always a favorite.

Pumpkins for sale were attractively displayed across the street.

We also found treasures at two shops owned by Mennonites.

In addition to enjoying each other’s company, we picked 3 bushels of Crispen and Winesap apples and drew inspiration from the beautiful scenery of the Finger Lakes region of New York state.

We had such a nice time, we are already making plans for a similar trip next fall.
