This was the staff that greeted us! This store has been open for 33 years...talk about success! It was a Mother/Daughter team, now the daughter owns it. She is the one second from the left. You can tell these ladies have a good time, the atmosphere was so warm and inviting...I could have spent all day here!
The patterns hanging (with the black borders) are published by Glad Creations. They are all beautiful and are of pieced quilt designs. I have bought some of them over the years...now I know where they originate from. I added a few more to my collection! They had samples of these quilts (some in several color ways) hanging up in a special area...they were hung like rugs at Home Depot...it was soooo inspiring! They were difficult to photograph that way...you'll just have to come and see them yourself!
There were samples everywhere! Here are some hand applique' quilts! I'm glad that I accidentally got these two women in the photo. They are Lola and Marcie from Washington state! Lola is a teacher close to retirement who intends to begin a quilt vacation business! They were so fun...I plan to stay in contact with Lola...Washington state quilt vacation here I come!
