    Kalona is just about 30 miles sw of Iowa City and we are 60 miles straight south of Iowa City.

    It takes me about an hour to get to Kalona from home. They have some interesting stores.They have a couple of my favorite fabric shops. They are not cheap but I can find the tiny print I need there.

    Thanks they will. She buys everything I take up. I have been selling to her for 11 years so I know what she likes and what sells for her.

    I take it up and she hands me a check. I do like that!!!

    My only problem is and has always been keeping up with what she needs. Tho we had some major flooding last fall and thousands lost their homes in the all the counties around here so business was very very slow last summer and fall. There was only one road open to get into Kalona last fall. and there are 4 major roads going into town. The one from the interstate was closed and under water for several weeks.

    So we all hope this summer is better but with the economy...
    Yes she buys from me but if she doesn't sell then I can't fill the holes with new stuff!

    i really like the middle one of the 2nd picture - that would make a very interesting quilt pattern - just imagine in only shades of black/white!!

    You're right there is no dumb question. there are only questions which you don't know the answer to yet. Those are eyeglass cases. Now you know the answer. They are fun to do.

    I worked there before the daughter took over (many years ago). The quilt show is usually the last of April, are you going to get them there in time? Nice work!

    those were done a couple of years ago. Joette closed the store more than a year ago. Her husband died and she decided not to carry on with it. They had had a rough couple of years with all the flooding. Kalona was almost cut off from the world when it flooded two or three years ago and the town had a hard time financially.

    I started selling to Joette in 98. Her mom still owned it then but Joette took over a couple of years later. She was great to work with. I sold to her for 12 years and did quite well.

    Yes, Dave's death was hard, but he kept faith to the end (from my youthful church). Mom says he left a strong testimony. Some of the farmers went back to planting wheat to accomodate the shorter growing season between when the land became dry enough to get in and harvesting. It was so pretty to see the wheat fields when the sun shone brightly on them. Stop in Stitch 'n Sew if you get the chance. :D Tell Grace or Dorothy Bev sent you. :D

    Was in there a week or two ago. It is one of my favorite shops. They always have something I like. We go to Iowa City to the Va alot and I stop as often as I can. Tigger was saying the other day she found a shop in Hills I didn't know was there. Now I want to try it out.
