Field Trip !!!!

Good morning and TGIF Blogland Neighborhood! A couple of days ago the MBIAJ Sewing & Quilting Dept had the opportunity to take a quick field trip to



.....this place .... from afar it looks like a typical little brick house BUT it's not! It is .....





....Quiltmaker's Cottage! A jam packed quilt shop that just so happens to be one of the featured quilt shops in the upcoming issue of ......




...... Quilt Sampler magazine !! (that 2nd close up picture is the one in the magazine ....obviously taken last fall!)




.....and here is an autographed copy of the magazine they had for sale in the shop. These 2 nice gals were as friendly as can be and were busy cutting kits for their featured quilt in the magazine. (of course the MBIAJ Photography Dept FORGOT THE CAMERA so they were unable to take pictures while they were in there .... SHEESH!!! However later they came back with the camera but the shop was closed ... so , like FBI surveillance, they parked across the street and snapped a picture before leaving town .....that's that first picture up there)

Anyhow ..... WHERE is this fun little quilt shop you ask? ......well, it couldn't be in a more perfect location because it's about one mile away from where they make .....




.......THESE !!!! and all things CHOCO-LATE in Hershey, Pa ! You can literally SMELL chocolate in the air! Which I'm sure inspired .....




......a few of the projects displayed in the quilt shop! (image from the magazine since, as we noted before the MBIAJ Photography Dept FORGOT THE CAMERA!)


Snnnnnnnnnnif.......AAAAHHHHhhhhhhhh....we can still smell the chocolate .......what a great combination.....fabric shopping and chocolate sniffing!

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Oh what a wonderful quaint little shop Mary Ann and lucky you for getting to go there! I am quite jealous! Loved the fabric balls below too and your home is gorgeous! I sure hope everything is OK w/you and yours and here's to a Happy Mother's Day :)

I love Hershey - from the pervasive aroma in the air to the candy kisses street lights!

I've never seen this shop. I'll have to make a point to visit next time we're visiting the area ... which hopefully will be in the next few months!

What fun!!! Thanks for sharing. (Of course, I'd rather taste the chocolate than just smell it!!! LOL)

I'm headed to the general PA area in July! I'll have to make note and stop by there.
