Another TN Quilt Shop - Tennessee Quilts

Our trip to TN Quilt Shops continued at to Tennessee Quilts in quaint Jonesbourgh. This great shop in right on the main drag into town 114 Boone Street.

The shop is in a converted 2 story house. Both floors are full to the brim with fabric, notions, really cool tools, books and shop samples. Upstairs there are also quilts on consignment.

We lucked out, they were having a SALE, as my sister can attest.

Here is a shot of one of the sale fabric tables. I don't know if you can see it on your monitor but the colors of fabric Donna is holding matches the colors in her shirt. I wonder if that means those are her colors?

We met one of the Owners, Linda Crouch-McCreadie... She was wonderful - assuring us we could take our time, even though it was close to quitting time. Here she is cutting fabric for their online sales. In the front and on the right is my pile.

There were several wonderful and helpful employees when we arrived. This is Judy. Linda is in the back.

Judy is cutting the yummy fabrics for several baby quilts. Have I mentioned our 2 precious twin granddaughters and that a new one is on the way lately?

When we got there it was daylight. When we left it was dark. The staff and shop were wonderful. Thank you to all who were there on Saturday.

If you get a chance the short drive from Johnson City to Jonesbourgh, TN is well worth the 10 or 15 minute drive. We definitely will be back.

TN Quilt Shops

My sister and I decided to spend some time together on Saturday by taking a ride, it was a beautiful day to go up the mountain into TN. It is only a little over an hour to Johnson City, TN. The first shop we visited was Nimble Thimble. That's me ready to shop!

We really enjoyed the shop, lots of different items, large class room and quite a few store samples of various patterns. We met a wonderful person, Myra. She was wearing a present from a family member that was just too cute. I really need to find the pattern. It looks like a vest, is knitted as a circle with 2 arm holes. No hole for her head so part of the circle covers the back and part of it creates the neck line. The yarn was really chunky and tutti fruiti colors.
Thanks Myra for a wonderful visit!
