We were so busy setting up and selling stuff yesterday I really didn’t have time to take a lot of photos.
Obies, the fabric hoarding store of your dreamsPosted: April 3, 2015 Filed under: Favorite shops, Fun Finds | Tags: fabric shopping, Lancaster, Obies Country Store, quilt fabric, Quilting, Sewing 8 Comments
Goodville, Pennsylvania is just a blip of a town. You drive through it before you realize you even arrived. Its biggest claim to fame is the legendary hoard of quilting fabric in Obies Country Store, an unassuming clapboard house with a 1960s sign over the porch.
A friend and I went fabric shopping there last week, like going to Fabric Mecca on Holiday. I was overwhelmed just by stepping inside. This is extreme hoarding without the bad smells or squashed cats.
How I made a four-year-old happy with vintage sheet scrapsPosted: March 24, 2015 Filed under: Home and Garden | Tags: Sewing, vintage fabric, vintage sheets 11 Comments

I knew right away I’d want to do something special with them. Then one afternoon while the grandkids were jumping around the house an idea suddenly clicked: I’d make a dress for my four-year-old granddaughter. Click here to see more!
I put a vintage quilt in my washer and it didn’t diePosted: March 18, 2015 Filed under: Fun Finds, Laundry, This Old Row House | Tags: vintage patchwork, vintage quilt 6 Comments
I didn’t die, either (though you wouldn’t know it from my prolonged absence from this blog). Thank you, faithful readers, for coming back to look day after day after day!
A few weeks ago I bought a vintage quilt on eBay. A crazy colored quilt. A cheap quilt that no one else wanted. But I think it’s flat out wonderful.
Technically this is a comforter, not a quilt, because it’s tied, not quilted. Click here to see more!
