Almonte, is a very special little town, not too far from Kanata and Ottawa. Here is two Quilt Shops you want to go and see. One has amazing ceiling tiles, the other, Kelly. One have to go and visit her shop, to find out what I am talking about.
The buildings and all the beautiful details is all part of the charm.
The one below is crayon art, with stitching.
These two quilts, are class samples at Quilting Quarters.
The ceiling tiles.
A Chenille quilt made with panels.
A colourful display in the shop.
Up the road, Kelly's shop Textile Traditions.
It is sunny and bright, and full of laughter and fun.
It has Quilting, Knitting, Stitching and Smocking supplies.
Some amazing wool can be found here, so if you need something special, you will find it here.
Everytime one pop into the shop, the fabric is new and fresh.
Shopping for someone else, amazing how mobile phones can make it so much easier. With the click of a button, a photo is sent, a quick response and the fabric is given the nod to go ahead and keep a lady very happy.
Even in the middle of winter, when it is -35C ladies will drive to Kelly's for the day, as a field trip, this is one that win First Prize every time.
