If you happen to pass through Wellsboro, PA – chances are that you will pass by on Main Street.
If you find yourself on Main Street --- you can’t miss seeing Needles Quilt Shop right there sandwiched between other historic buildings on the beautifully groomed avenue.
After setting up for last night’s trunk show ---three of us took a 5 block walk down the main street from the Cultural Center where the meeting was being held, toward the restaurant where we were having dinner.
We had about 15 minutes to spare – so we thought we’d drop into Needles and say hello!
These two lovely ladies were so very welcoming! Mary is on the right --- and on the left, Tracy!
No, this is not fabric – this is the wonderful tiled ceiling!
Needles is in a lovely old building…with tall, wonderful brick walls. My eyes did go immediately to the ceiling, I just can’t help myself.
Yes there are lots of hanging samples! Yes there are batiks!
There are beautiful samples hanging everywhere, and reproductions to whet your appetite!
There was even a nice selection of 50% off fabrics…..and yes, I did indulge! Remember, Neutrals are ALWAYS a legal purchase! They are my staple, my mainstay!
I go through more neutrals than anything else. They are the bread to my peanut butter ---the tortilla to my taco. Something like that! Whatever it is, they hold everything else together for me!
My time in Wellsboro is nearly over. Today’s class is done. Tonight I’ve got dinner out with the guild ladies, and my last evening at Falling Stars Farm. Will I sew? Maybe. Will I sit on the veranda and watch the sun go down and just enjoy the quiet and read? Maybe.
Wednesday finds me on the road to HERSHEY which will be a whole nuther kind of chaos ----the biggest question on my mind? How to teach an all day workshop on Friday –along with a lecture/trunkshow luncheon on the same day ---HOW will I get the trunk show set up and all the books where they need to be so it’s ready for the 12:15pm show….and will I get packed up and be done and back where I need to be when class resumes?
If there was ever a time I wished for a clone --- this is it!
