New Location for the Quilted Ewe

Mary Watt's Quilted Ewe quilt shop has a new location, now in New Hartford, CT. Marie Bostwick, (quilt novelist from nearby Northfield, CT) is shown above visiting the new Quilted Ewe with a friend. It looks like they did a little shopping. 
The new larger store is in a charming old brick mill building, not far from Rt.44.
Mary offers machine quilting. You can do it yourself, or Mary will do the quilting for you. She also has enough space for 18 quilters to sew together (each person has their own big table). She offers classes as well as open sew time. 
And of course Mary offers a tempting selection of gorgeous fabrics as well as tools, books, wool and other goodies.

Yarn Bombing in Finland

Granny square afghans on the steps outside Helsinki Cathedral in Finland. According to FB comments, there were more afghans than they had room for on the steps. After this event, the afghans were delivered to hospitals, day care centers, convalescent homes, etc. Wow!

This fabulous Honeycomb quilt is the creation of Diane Volk Harris of Nebraska. As you probably know, she is Associate Editor and Writer for Quiltmaker Magazine. She made this at a recent quilt retreat. You can read more about it in her Facebook post. I love Diane's version. Nice job!
Here she is with a very cute little buddy. Aww.
