Our own little shop hop

I am finally getting caught up enough to post more about our trip to Minnesota.  Monday was our quilty day.  First we went to Piecemakers in Hackensack.  They really have a nice shop - here is a little tour...

 This is Ollie - he is the shop mascot - such a good little dog.
 Love this patriotic sample.
 Enlarge the above picture - I love the little stocking, and the flowers in the old window frame.

 Lots of wool and wool felt projects to drool over.
 They have lots of cute displays.
Yummy wool.
I was proud of myself - I used much restraint during the whole trip, but I did have to have a few things...
Fabric that I could not live without!

Sorry about the sideways pictures - and these are not the best quality, but I don't have time (or patience) to make them better!  This is a calendar that Piecemakers put together - Aunt Nancy and I both made the calendar - I forgot to take a picture of hers (see how selfish I am!).  You can see that I am September.  If you would like to purchase a calendar, send them an e-mail - I thought they were on the website but I didn't see them this morning (I could be missing it!). 

That's all for today, I have to get busy - more of our shop-hop on the next post!!

Have a great day!


  1. That looks like my kind of shop--lots of vintage and primitive things!
    How cool to make a calender. Is that kind of like being a pin-up? : )

  2. Fun, fun, FUN! Congrats on being a calendar girl!

  3. Congratulations on the publication. That wool applique in the window frame is TOO clever, I absolutely love it!

  4. Fun, fun, place! Even I would've gotten in trouble there! Love the wool applique, penny mats...and I spy punch needle!! Love that Christmas stocking too - and your fabrics are yummy!!! Congrats on being Miss September!! What an honor!!! Looking forward to more of your trip! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. Have been to Piecemakers, too! LOVE it! :)

  6. Thanks for sharing such great photos! Looks like a shop I'd love to visit. So many inspiring displays. Have a good weekend. ~Roberta
