On a rather grey, drizzly morning, this cheerful entry welcomed us to Ye Olde School House in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. What a delightful treat we had in store! Every little nook and cranny was filled to the brim with cleverly arranged displays, complete with kits and patterns for each beautiful quilt. We commented later that we spent as much time with our eyes on the walls, drinking in the dozens of amazing quilts, as we did scanning the rows and rows of fabrics. We loved the room devoted to shelves of woolens, and took advantage of the pre-cuts and kits. One of our group said she appreciated that the owner had found her comfort zone with the Civil War era fabrics, and hadn't tried to introduce every other thing on the market.  We went away with our arms loaded, our pocketbooks lighter and our hearts singing!

This was sent to me by Bonnie Miles from her I pad.  By her sharing that with us now our hearts are singing also........when we give we receive.  Thank-you Bonnie.  Next year, I hope to be with you!


  1. Love wool and civil war fabrics, so off I went to check out the Ye Olde School House website. YUP...I could definitely do some damage there!

  2. Me too....don't you wish we were along? Bonnie arranges the best trips. Her trip to Amish country in Pa., is amazing. I've gone twice with her. She is friends with some of the Amish and we have a wonderful meal in their home. She also took us to see the Jane Sickle quilt which of course included the New England Fall foliage and other sites.
