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 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.
