3 Dudes Quilt Store

 Yesterday I was invited by 
my friend Niser Holland
to join her for a day of sewing at
in Ahwatukee
Beautiful quilts 
 Impeccably decorated
The most welcoming and friendly staff
I felt as if I had walked into a very comfortable home.
My eye immediately went to 
Hexagon Shuffle
made with 40 Pre-Cut Hexagons 
*free PDF pattern offered by Moda
 3 Dudes offers a very nice kit available for purchase.
The sample on the bed
Pieced by Jeff Carr
Quilted by Sharon Elsberry
 The store was beautifully decorated for 
Thanksgiving
with smells of pumpkins and spices
to greet you as you walk in the door.
 A Thanksgiving table 
complete with china
 and fabric turkeys
made from fat quarters
to accompany each place setting
 They even have a
Thanksgiving Tree
If I understood right,
Jeff Carr is the
creative decorator
behind these impressive 
interior designs .
 And of course,
this spacious store has
 rows of lovely fabrics and patterns
 The 3 Dudes
really have made this a 
home away from home
With jars filled with freshly baked cookies
free for the customer's pleasure.
Our group filled a back class room.
Every Tuesday
from 9:30-3
the 3 Dudes offers
Sit and Sew
for only $5
Come Join Us!
Some brought machines
Many did handwork
A delightful day to get some sewing done without distractions.
(with plenty of time for shopping)
I know I will be back.

I wish I lived close by and I would join you - it sounds like the perfect place to sit and sew - fresh baked cookies would tip it over the scale for me :) how much fun. Love the split hexie quilt and will have to look at that pattern - the quilt you show on the wall is one I have looked at as well - can I come and play LOL
