    DH and I are off to West Haven Ct. this weekend to pick up.... A REDEYE 66 TREADLE !!! Won the bid on ebay for $57.00, of course I mentioned to DH that after the trip, she cost more like $257.00... He says no Toots, the trip is a mini vacation. So, any recommendations for quilt shop stops along the way? We are coming from NY.

    In CT, The Quilt Shop is not far off I84, so it wouldn't be a huge detour. http://thequiltshoponline.com/directions.html


    This is off your route a bit so I don't know if you'd have the time and want to bother:
    http://www.fieldstonehousefabrics.com/ in Sidney Center.
    The shop is insane. INSANE. Call first to check hours.

    Have a fun and safe trip.

    If you're on I84, there's the Quilt Basket in Wappingers Falls, NY.

    You made it! We decided to head straight on home and made it by 11pm. Sunday being Fathers Day, all the kids came home and set up Davids new wood shop. Family BBQ and lots of oohs and aahs over the new Red eye girl. You and your husband were both so kind! Did you find the model number on your grams machine? Maybe a 28 or a 128?

    Oh good. Im so glad you had a safe trip. Can't wait to see pics of your new addition! No, I haven't had a chance to look up the model number of gram's machine. I will and I will post it with a pic.

    That would be great. There is a new picture thread for the vintage machines. It will be a great data base.
