For a while now we have been planning a trip to the US and Canada, you might remember a post I did a few months back asking if anyone new of some must stop quilt stores. For part of the trip we were in Lancaster & Intercourse Pennsylvania, yep Amish country. We only had two full days in the area and one of them was a Sunday, so that left me with only one afternoon to hit quilt stores in the land of quilting. Man it was amazing. The workmanship was out of this world of the quilts that were on show. I wasn’t able to take any photos sorry, the Amish people don’t like to be photographed and the shores I went into were all amish shops, Zook’s fabrics, which by far is the best, if you go to their website you can see photos of the shop. I also went to Nancy’s Corner, which was a mix of fabrics and completed quilts, I have never seen so many quilts, floor to ceiling, all different sizes. They had a bed in the shop that you could put quilts on to see the designs. It must have had 50 or more on the bed let alone the ones up the wall. For those into quilting a trip to Intercourse, PA is a must.
I will be stopping into other fabric stores on my travels next stop will be Fabric Row in Philly so I am hoping to get some photos of the stores there. My mom has already given me a shopping list for this neck of the woods!!!
