Quilting Sisters

Whenever we visit a new (to us) town in Arizona, one of the first things we look for is a quilt store.
While we were in Payson on Saturday, we stopped by Quilting Sisters.
What a great store!
Such a friendly staff, and they were overflowing with current fabrics, fun classes, and a wealth of new ideas.
They have so many delightful things going on, I know I will be back.

Located in a beautiful location along the Beeline Highway.

A large offering of class samples dot every corner and cranny of the store.

From vintage aprons to Southwest designs, Quilting Sisters offers a little bit of something for every taste.

I was especially interested in the classes working with Amy Butler patterns and fabrics.

Cute displays offering suggestion on how to create with selvages.

An entire wall of Batiks for the batik lovers.

Applique classes in a warm cabin type atmosphere.

And even Rug Loom Weaving classes.
A great way to use up left over scrap fabrics.
It was wonderful to see a store with so much going on, from retreats to quilt lectures to clubs.
If you are driving this way through Arizona, Quilting Sisters is definitely worth the stop.
You can also learn more about all the wonderful things going on with their store by visiting their web site at
*Tomorrow I will show you some of the beautiful quilts and ideas displayed through out their store.

I always love to explore quilt shops when we travel as I have none here at home. Sometimes I really love the ones I find and visit them again if I am in the area a second time and others I never go back to. Most of the time everyone is really friendly too.

Oh, how fun! What a great place to explore. I love the loom. I saw a similar antique loom on the Lincoln Trail in Kentucky.

I think quilt stores are the happiest places. They just make me smile--I think I need to go to a quilt store today!

I knew you were a smart lady and found the quilt show. I hate to admit this - I've lived in Arizona all my life - never visited Tonto Bridge State Park - but have been to the quilt store there numerous times!
