Last week when Mr, Squash and I were on the Washington Peninsula, we just had to stop in Port Gamble. It's a tiny little town on the mainland via the Edmonds/Kingston ferry, just before you get to the Hood Canal bridge. It was once a small mill town and is now on the Historic Register. Not only are there some wonderful little homes along the main road that have been preserved quite beautifully, there are a few shops to see as well. Recently a former neighbor of ours toured the town and told me the next time we went through I just had to see the quilt shop! Thanks, Shirley!
This view is from the parking lot. Imagine having lived with this view in a mill town!
Here is the quilt shop. It's called The Quilted Strait - love the name! They are located in what was the Old Stables building. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the barn quilts! I must have one some day.
Here is the view walking in the door.
Something for everyone - including all my friends (you know who you are) who love polka dots! Believe me, there were a lot more bolts of dots scattered around.
Wonderful notions section.
Lovely Civil War section.
Wool! Be still my heart!
Lots of bright colors and fun quilts displayed.
A parting shot looking past the cutting tables. Just in case you're wondering, I did help out the local economy here!
If you've been wondering how Gracie May is doing - have a look! She's made herself at home. We all couldn't be happier!
