Thursday morning I headed off to Portland for a quick little road trip. First stop was at the Fabric Depot and for the first time I didn't buy a thing!
The next morning I went off in search of Pioneer Quilts new location at 3101 SE Courtney Avenue which is about 15 minutes from their old location.
Here is a view of the property from the parking lot, see the Open sign in the windows on the left? The Broetje House was build in 1889 and was at one time a venue for weddings and parties. Recently the property has been in disrepair but Linda Hadley the owner has done wonders to open the shop in a short span of time. In July I was at the old store and she hinted about a new property but didn't want to jinx anything.
Hanging on the right side of the entry is a great wool and cotton piece along with a wonderful applique piece below and the pattern for My Sewing Room.
On this trip I'm going to try and not go overboard with fabric/quilting purchases. The pumpkin thread is all I bought...two shops 1 purchase. Off to a good start!
Back outside the store another giant Sequoia tree.
