Catching up…….

As many of you know, who have been following my jottings, I/we have just returned from the Northern Black Hills of South Dakota. Our reasons, this time, were many and varied. The quilt show in Hill City is always a highlight (and it didn’t disappoint…..but that is a story for another post). This time, I was fortunate enough to do a trunk show/micro-stippling demo at my fave quilt shop in the hills: The Bakery Fabrics. It’s location in downtown Belle Fourche is a delight! The historic building, once home to a local bakery, has been transformed into a quilters’ heaven! Annie carries fabrics to touch every sewer’s heart. A quick photo tour. 474477 

Let me introduce you to Annie…..472

    How I wish we had shops even one quarter as wonderful as that one. I am sure you did enjoy giving a demonstration to ladies who love to quilt. What a great way to spend part of your vacation.

      I wish you had access to such, also. Annie’s ability to choose such a variety of beautiful fabric is a gift. The appeal is very wide. Lin, I’m so glad you stopped for a visit!!! Hugs…..

    That shop is a quilter’s paradise… But the name of the place is odd, is it a bakery too??

    • treadlemusic says:

      It was when it was built and Annie bought it, quite a few years ago, and had a coffee shop in it at first. This was long before coffee shops were popular. Then she turned it into the shop it is today. The displays/bolts are tucked in some of the baking equipment that remains (like the gigantic mixer). The wood cabinets in the first room are original and so gorgeous!!!!!

    Wow. That looks like a place I would love to visit myself someday.

  12. Karen says:

    Congratulations on your Trunk Show and Demo ! We want to hear more!! Love the quilt shop…what a beautiful place.

    What a neat place – I just love going to these smaller quilt shops – looks like you had fun too and that’s equally important. Keep the updates coming…
