REPOST- I posted the wrong hours.....YIKES
The actual hours at Lisa Spalding's Quilt Foundry are:
Monday-Thursday 10-7 and Friday and Saturday 10-5
The Quilt Foundry has been owned by 4 ladies for the past 22 years. Gretchen, Mary, Margaret and Peg have decided to "retire" and there was a reception for them on Oct. 26th. I actually just stumbled upon the reception as I went in to buy some fabric. Good think I always carry my trusty camera!!!
This was a fun article posted just inside the door at the Quilt Foundry. The gal on the top right is Gretchen. Below is a photo of Gretchen at the reception. She still has that same great welcoming smile!!
Margaret is on the left and the new owner, Lisa Spalding is on the right. Every time I needed to find a fabric to coordinate Margaret was my go-to person. I guess I'll have to find her the next time I'm stuck!!! I wish I had her gift/talent.
The Quilt Foundry closed on October 29th and will re-open on Monday, November 15th at 10:00 with a SALE......oh yeah baby!!! Nothing brings quilters out into the cold faster than a fabric sale....very nice quilt shop fabric....I wonder if there will be campers out there the night before. I can see a long line of ladies with their lawn chairs all lined up to the door starting at 5:00 pm the night before....LOL.
Rich Spalding, Lisa's husband, is also a long arm quilter (rumor has it Rich owns 10% of the business....does that make him a silent partner? ). I can't wait to see where they put their long arm machines. I heard from a little birdie that they have done some renovations. Hmmmm....wonder if anyone will notice a tall red head peaking in the windows? I could disguise myself as the meter reader and insist in getting in to read the meter. I fear they would recognize me and pull the window shades.
This is a before photo....I'll post another after I see all the changes. The Quilt Foundry's new hours are Monday - Saturday 10-4, Tuesday evenings 7-9pm and after the new year they will have Sunday hours as well. I know Lisa is excited and can't wait to welcome everyone so stop on over and check out her new digs.
