Animal Parade Trunk Show

Shop News

The Vermont Shop Hop is in full swing.  Please remember that the shop will be closed from March 30 through April 17.  We will reopen on April 18 when Sue heads off to the quilt show in Paducah.  During this break for housekeeping we will still be checking emails and voice mails.  Carolyn will also be catching up with her quilting.  If you need to bring or pick up a quilt during the period the shop is closed please email Carolyn to make an appointment.  Our plans are in progress for our Spring Retreat but the retreat is fully booked.  We do have a waiting list in the event there are cancellations.

Animal Parade Trunk Show

As promised, the staff from Country Treasures has quilted each of the quilts from the delightful book, Animal Parade by Cheri Leffler for our very own Country Treasures trunk show.  Here are photos of nine of the ten quilts from the book:  Froggy Serenade, Just Ducky, Goin’ Bananas, Whoo Dat?, Kits ‘n’ Caboodle, School Friends, Tree Huggers, Feeling Sheepy and Heads in the Clouds.  A Penguin Playdate is not quite ready for prime time but will be waddling along shortly.  Our thanks to Sue Ashe, Carolyn Niesuchouski, Linda Bazin, Christy Thomas, Jim Adams, Sue O’Dea, Sharyn Priester, and Sarah Furrer for their talents.
