More about my favorite Quilt Store!















Isn't this a pretty table runner? I think so, you'll have to click on the picture to see who made it. I understand there is a contest going on making table runners.I am anxiously waiting to see them all on display. Congratulations to all who enter.




I tell you, there is always something going on there.



How about some thread? This is just one rack, there are several more and several brands.I KNOW there is a lot of thread there, cause for the last 2 years I have done the year-end inventory on her thread!!!So if you need thread, I can promise you that Sew Original on Robinhood Road in Winston Salem, N.c is the place to get it !!!! ***VBS***



I like this quilt also, I hope to make one someday,( do you think I will live long enough? ) Sorry the picture is blurred, but I am NOT a very good photographer.You can ask any one who knows me, they won't let me take a picture of them, I usually mess them up! Shirley was telling me the colors in this quilt is very different.....For instance, the blue fabric (the rest of them too) is all one piece of fabric, it starts out light and gets darker . I foolishly didn't look at any of the fabric so I am having a hard time describing it, but go by there, if they don't have any, someone will tell you all about it .

Just look at these blocks, I'm sure Holly made all of them.I think she is so smart, but don't tell her I said so****VBS****,So let me tell you a little bit about Holly, she is one sweet and very talented lady,always willing to help with wharever you need.She is a great teacher, very patient.She has made some beautiful quilts, her mind is always working, she is busy, busy! You'll like her, I just know you will!!!

Let's go back to Jeannie, she really is good with color choices but if you look at the quilt on yesterday's blog you will see her handiwork. She, too, teaches and is very good. She is a little quiet, but once you get her talking, she is great, very smart quilter.I wish I had more time, I would love to take classes from her!!

Now, there's Terri, she knows her stuff!!! If you don't believe me, just go in the store and ask a software question....I'm telling you she impresses me.....She is also a very talented seamstress, makes lovely home dec pieces.GO TERRI!!!

Muriel, what can I say to adequately describe her, no where near enough! She, too, is a great teacher. When she decides on a project, there is no stopping her,She does a LOT of sewing. She is an inspiration to me.She makes lots of quilts and different things then teaches them. Go by sometime soon and sign up for one of her classes, you'll be glad you did...What you waiting for??Go SIGN UP RIGHT NOW!!!

Judy, what a delightful lady, always smiling. Makes you fell so welcome,a great teacher and so talented.I just fell in love with her the first time I met her.She too, can and does make beautiful quilts. She teaches as well,She is so willing to help you that you really don't won't to leave.Great with color choices too. I can't wait to see you when I get home again.

Joyce, oops!!! I forgot her in my last post, please forgive me, between you being gone and me being gone I haven't seen Joyce in a while. She is another very nice lady, talented and smart, what more can you ask for???Helpful, well, she's that too. Go by and take a class from her, I guarantee a fun and informative time.


Now, let's talk about Shirley.............I can not say enough nice things about her. First let me say she is several years younger than me but my DH and my sister says she has adopted me.

She is so sweet and has helped me more than anyone I can think of.I had lots,and lots and lots of problems with my sewing machine ( it came from some where else), she just kept helping me until it was all fixed, without her, I would have given up long ago.She has encouraged me to do things I never dreamed I could do, and do successfully. I want to THANK her, she is a great friend. She is a wonderful seamstress, she loves making clothes for her GS.... you should see some of her handiwork,amazing is the word that comes to mind.She can whip up a quilt top too.

The world would be a better place if she had more time to teach. If you ever get a chance to go to a class she is teaching or a lecture she has, do not miss it, you will be so sorry, Thank You Shirley, mostly for being such a good friend but also for being such a good teacher and having faith in me to do things I really didn't think I was capable of doing..

I sure do miss all my friends at Sew Original, and yes I count all of them as my friends. Can't wait to get back, maybe this time I will get to see all of you, I'm counting on it anyway.

I have also met a lot of Shirley's customers and I can't let this opportunity go by without saying to each of them, I miss you too. What a great honor to have met you and calling you my friends. See ya soon.

OK, now I think I have mentioned everyone, if not someone let me know and I will "fix" that.

Take care, one and all, and stay busy quilting memories. Later,
