Five rooms of wonderful products, samples and finished projects for sale.
Darlene was there to greet me as I walked in the front door.
To the right of Darlene is the notions wall and her thread and floss collections.
Many of the items had sold out already!
To the left is the fabric room. The fabric selections just make my heart sing!
And the other side of the room...
And the pattern wall. Oops...forgot to move my cane when I took this picture.
Continuing on, the next room is chock full of wool, Valdani perle cotton, redwork, backing fabric, batting and fusible web...oh, and books too!
Is your heart beating just a little bit faster yet?
Next is the room housing the quilts that are for sale.
You already knew that I couldn't leave without purchasing more fabric! *wink*
So if you ever happen to be in, around or near Digby, Nova Scotia, you must make A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop one of your "must visit" destinations. I promise that you won't be disappointed. Darlene, the owner, has been quilting since she was a little girl and is chock full of knowledge about our craft. I forgot to take some photos of the classroom area which not only has more finished quilts on display but also has a design wall, perfect for when Darlene starts teaching classes in the very near future.
But I'll be there again tomorrow when my BFINM (Best Friend I've Never Met)...Lesley, of The Cuddle Quilter is coming to Digby to visit Darlene's shop. Lesley lives about 200+ miles from us in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and although we've tried to hook up before, usually my health issues somehow managed to get in the way.
So after communicating for two years via our blogs, emails and wonderful telephone calls, we are finally going to have the opportunity to meet "up-close-and-personal".
I can't wait!!!
