Quilters on Vacation: St. Mary's to Peterborough

Cynthia N and mother enjoyed a few days away this summer combining their respective hobbies of quilting and genealogy. During a quick trip to Peterborough to meet and confer with a newly discovered relative, Cynthia took advantage of the drive to drop in at a few quilt shops along the way! First was a visit to Simply Sew in St. Mary's.


Followed quickly by a stop in Stratford at Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe. Eventually, and with the aid of her GPS, Cynthia found the Hobby Horse just outside of Georgetown.



It's tricky to find this shop, even with technology, but well worth the effort. In downtown Peterborough Cynthia dropped in at Tangled Threads, (great name for a store!..ed)




and on the way home Cynthia discovered Quilts N Critters in Millbrook, On (below). Cynthia recommends this double shop discovery, which claims to have the largest retail inventory of Jim Shore items along with original store fittings and fabulous fabrics! One "store" has Jim Shore and cottons while the shop next door has all the flannel fabrics! It was a quick but rewarding trip!
