Wool Fix

Greetings to All!

Yesterday I went with a very dear friend to a wonderful quilt shop in Louisville, Ohio. It is called AnnaLouisas Needlearts and is a delightful shop! Barb Stevens is the owner and she has the shop full of irrestible items. There is a Civil War room, complete with reproduction fabrics as well as a Civil War uniform and pictures.

Then you can travel into the wool room - actually the needlearts room - as it has oodles of wool - both hand dyed (gorgeous!) and on the bolt as well as wool for knitting and also items for embroidery. She has a wonderful 1930's era display and so much more - great pattern selection and extensive wall of notions.

So you are probably wondering - what did Kelli buy? Well........... wool of course! The great thing about this shop is that they bowls and baskets of wool scraps you can sort through and they sell it by the ounce. I plopped down on the floor and went at it. I'm still gathering wool for my Wool Crazy block so it was fun to sort through the scraps and then I purchased pieces of hand dyed wool as well. The pictures don't do it justice! Go online and view them for yourself!

Do click on AnnaLouisa's link above and take a tour of the store. And if you are ever in the area - make sure you stop in as Barb and her staff are so warm and welcoming - you'll feel like you are in your own home! Thanks Barb and Staff for making it such a special place to come and "let your hair down!"

Happy Sewing!
