Hay Connie; Yes we are open on Sunday, Noon to 5pm. But if your early and I'm not open yet - come to the back door of the house and I'll open up for you. It no problem, no problem for us - we love our shop. I live next door to the shop so its no big deal. hope to see you soon.
Hi Connie, We have a shop in Strasburg, IL That is about 21 miles south of Sullivan, 14 miles south east from Shelbyville. We opened up shop in 2002. I have been quilting myself for about 5 years. Now I'm hocked. LOL. I have about 2000 bolts in the shop and about that many in the house next to the shop (in our home).We did the Quilt shop there for a time but it got harder and harder to load set-up tear it down and then unload. I still have a lot of quilters from Springfield. well I talked your eyes off. :) Hope we can meet sometime.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
Have you heard of my books? Butter in the Well was my first book in 1992.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
