No huge blinking sign on the front of the building….but who needs words? You can plainly see by the wide open windows just what is going on inside!
Quiltworks is owned by a trio of sisters: Henri, Linda and Connie. They’ve been in business for about 4 years now and business is GROWING! They specialize in Pfaff sewing machines and Handi-Quilter quilting machines ---and oh! The FABRIC! over 4,000 bolts of fabric!
I loved the industrial almost warehouse feel of the building with its concrete floors and spacious aisles to wander. Every genre of fabric desired was there on display arranged in rainbows of color for browsing, petting and purchasing!
Displays hang from the open bean ceiling, with lights highlighting every nook and cranny.
Beautiful sample quilts!
Machines on display --- come give them a test run!
This was a wonderful shop to wander! And the staff was friendly and welcoming!
Of course, I felt right at home with this:
Missing only a shuttle, bobbin and slide plate….I gave it a gentle turn of the hand crank……she turned smoothly --- it wouldn’t take much to get her running!
Aren’t these decal’s GORGEOUS?!?
Many thanks to the staff at Quiltworks for the use of their classroom space and for providing such a happy atmosphere for us to create, create, create!
This morning we start our festivities at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show ----today’s class? Pineapple Blossom! You can find it in the free pattern tab at the top of the blog. Still one of the best scrap quilts ever, and one of my most popular classes even after almost 7 years of traveling and teaching. I’m looking forward to a fun day with the ladies, the scraps and the show!
