Let’s Bee Social #152

Posted on: November 23rd, 2016 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

I made it! The past two weeks were jam packed with shows and workshops. But I strategically scheduled an early leave for my show in Orillia. I have been in touch with Sue for a while now. She has been purchasing my patterns to carry in her shop that is located very close to Orillia, in Severn, Ontario. Here are a few photos from my time spent shopping at Thimbles & Things.

You know I’m going to be a sucker for a print with birds or animals. How could I resist?

1 meter of Winter Birds by Northcott Fabrics


2 meters of Woodland Winter by Northcott Fabrics


3 meters of O Canada by Northcott Fabrics

It was so nice to be able to browse in Sue’s quilt shop. I rarely get a chance to look for fabric in real life – and mostly purchase through online shops. And this place had a lot of quilt related stuff to see. Not just fabric. There are threads, rulers and notions. And the largest selection of patterns and books I have ever seen! They also have a workshop set up for classes. And they provide longarm quilting, too. AND they are also Pfaff retailer. If you can’t make it up to see her in person, you can do a virtual shop here at Thimbles & Things.
