Quilters Delight

While on my short vacation in The Dalles, my gal pals and I wanted to have a day of sewing.  I called the shop in town and Carrie was thrilled to have us come spend the day with her. 

We arrived bag and baggage and got busy.  Both of my gal pals got a good jump on projects they are working on and me, well, I just bounced around most of the day. 

If you are travelling on Hwy 84 through the Columbia Gorge, you MUST stop at the cutest quilt shop.  It's called Quilters Delight and is owned by Carrie.
Don't you just love the brick walls for a backdrop?  This shop is so unique, you walk into the space and you are in a hallway with all these little rooms off to each side.  They are all open to the back so you don't feel crowded or closed it. 
This was a BOM she was offering. My photos look like her shop is all 30's but she has something for everyone. Lots of samples, and she has a feature quilter hang a trunk show in the main hallway, so you never know what you are going to see when you stop by.
Although I only got to meet Carrie briefly, she is a wonderful shop owner, so stop by and tell her I sent you!

Anytime to get together with your gal pals and sew is a good time, but in those surroundings...that made it a perfect day. Good for you!

I didn't know it either--of course, when I went through there a couple of times it was years ago with 4 little ones in tow. Doesn't make for good shopping. Looks like a very fun shop--hope to get there someday.
