    Hubby took me there on the way back home since we were so close. It is a very neat store.

    Outside of the store. It sits on the square.

    It was, there was so much I would have loved to buy. The material was on sale, 4 dollars a yard, and kits were on sale also.

    Thanks for sharing. That's the closest some of us will ever get to F & P I'm guessing.

    Wow a store like that would like looking around in a candy store for me. I could spend hours looking at all those beautiful quilts up on the walls. My sister and I went to Silverdale a couple years ago on my birthday and we went in to a couple of quilt shops there and just walked around looking at all those quilts that were hanging on the walls. Their fabric was expensive, but we did buy a few things, but it was so much fun just looking at all the finished quilts in that store in Silverdale. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay
