Look closely, see the rocking chair at the front entrance to this quilt shop? Had hubby been with me, that’s exactly where he would have been! Such a welcoming entrance. And I love the quilts hanging outside – how original is that?! The Quilt and Sew-In Retreats are held in beautiful Blowing Rock, NC. Just a short drive down the road from this beautiful mountain town is Boone, NC. One of the perks of retreat is the discount retreaters receive at area quilt shops. Sew Original, a big beautiful quilt shop is one of them!
I was greeted with a smile and friendliness – always a perk when shopping for fabric. There is an excellent and varied selection of top quality fabrics. At every turn there was color and texture. Modern fabrics, batiks, traditional, flannels, solids, florals and wool – whatever a quilter would want! There was a wonderful selection of patterns, books and quilty things. What are quilty things? Fun little gadgets that we quilters embrace.
And how tempting were all those amazing sewing machines. There were basic sewing machines, embroidery and the ultimate machines for quilters. I was sure to not linger too long looking at the machines. Temptation would surely set in and I would be dreaming of a new machine for days to come!
The staff was busy with other customers and prepping fabrics for their Row by Row. Maybe they were a little bit camera shy? They also offer quite a buffet of classes and clubs which may all be found on their website. You’ll just need to go there in person to experience all the quilty wonder and friendliness!
