Many times, guild workshops are held in community centers, churches, conference centers and other public buildings ---
But if the guild is very lucky, they get to use the classroom space at awesome quilt shops, which gives ME a chance to pet the fabric, and marvel at all that is out there for us as quilters, adding variety to our palettes, choices and options we NEED, of course!
The Painted Pony is a large shop and is easy to find!
Located just Southeast of Houston, in La Porte on Galveston Bay, they are near NASA and Space Center Houston, the Kemah waterfront and new boardwalk, cruise lines to Mexico, and convenient to Houston-Hobby Airport, and travelers on Interstates 10 and 45.
Their motto? "Quilting Tomorrow's Heritage Today".......I love that!
Friendly staff! Hi Tanya!
Bright lighting and rooms to wander!
Wonderful displays to inspire!
And sample quilts hung EVERYWHERE!
Beautiful Batiks in one corner room --
Civil war and primitives in another!
Unending walls of choices!
In every color of the rainbow and more!
A huge SALE ROOM! Yippee!!
And if you are looking for the Downton Abbey Fabric Line – They’ve Got it!
Oh I just LOVE these!
There is a room for brights, and kiddie fabrics! Sweet!
And Oh Boy! Strips and scraps BY THE POUND!!
Too bad my luggage is already at weight limits after this trip!
If you have a chance to visit Painted Pony n’ Quilts you won’t be disappointed.
Visit their website HERE for more info. And if you visit, tell them Bonnie sent you!
