Carriage House Quilts

Today, Tom and I took a trip to Naples, NY so he could put some of his pictures in the Artisanns Gallery.    I decided to tag along so I could check the quilt shop,

Carriage House Quilt Shop, Naples NY

Carriage House Quilt Shop, Naples NY

Carriage House Quilts.  The shop is housed in a 140 year old carriage house.  Singer Featherweights are scattered throughout the store.  There is even an old treadle machine.

Carolyn, the owner, is delightful to talk to and very helpful.  One of her classes, that is very popular, is a Hunter Star quilt.  Her technique allows many to go home with a finished quilt top.

In addition she  just expanded the downstairs space so that  Carriage House Quilts will be able to increase the class schedule into the summer months this year.

We ended a day with a stop at the Dr. Frank Winery and a picnic supper at Keuka Lake State Park. A delightful way to spend a summer day.

    Enjoyed your post – The Carriage House Quilt Shop looks so welcoming! I see we have similar interests too…how to adapt quilting in an RV when on the road. This summer we are staying close to home but hope to travel some next year…perhaps back to Alaska, which we love (2 trips so far). Our son lives in Wasilla & is a dedicated photographer. Hope you can drop by my blog site soon and there is a direct link to his site also which you might enjoy…lots of photos of Alaska. He is at http://www.sixtyonenorth.com
    Enjoy your summer weekend.

      I am looking forward to visiting Alaska again also. We spent 9 days in Juno, AK 4 years ago and would like to take a trip up the inner passage to Denali next year. Looking forward to this and any other trips we will be able to take next year. -Of course I want to visit some quilt shops and meet other quilters along the way.
