Most women have a penchant for shopping. Some like to shop until they drop and some of us are satisfied to window shop. I like a little of both.I enjoy walking through fabric stores. Quilting fascinates me and now that I am retired I hope to do some sewing.
Recently, while in the city of Big Bear, to my delight I discovered a fabric store. It is called PATCHWORKS Quilt Shop. Being the gentleman that my husband is, he told me to take my time, and that is what I did. My camera was in my purse and I introduced myself and asked permission to take pictures. I received a warm reception from the owner, Karen Sunseri and her co-worker, Sally Klein.
For a short time I got lost in the beautifully decorated store and took in the array of color with my camera as quick as I could without getting in their way. The ladies were gracious and patient and informed me about the recent Quilt Show that had taken place. Sally received a first place ribbon for her exquisitely made entry. At one corner of the building there is a Fall display of quilts that inspired me to at least start on some kind of small sewing project.
If you need inspiration, or instruction, classes are offered at PATCHWORKS Quilt Shop. With the Holidays right around the corner it is a good time to begin thinking about some handmade gifts. You will find Patchworks Quilt Shop at 42124-H on Big Bear Blvd.
