Thursday night I taught a crumb class at the Moonlight Stitching Studio/Sisters Retreat in West Union, Iowa. I hadn’t been there before so it was a treat. West Union isn’t far from me, in fact it’s only 25 minutes away, but I hadn’t been.
The front of the store is real cute and decorated wonderfully. Deb sells yarn, a few pre cuts and fun quilting/stitching related goodies.
In fact, Kelli bought some yarn in Iowa Hawkeye colors (gold and black) to make one of those neat scarves like the one I wearing in these pictures. They had it in Vikings (purple and gold-the scarf is all the way to the left in the picture) and Packers (green and yellow) too. I just know someone is going to ask me for Deb’s contact information because they want to order some yarn to make a scarf for their sports team fan so here is the info in advance.
It the back Deb has a great class room with room for 24 to eat and 24 to sew! There is also room upstairs for 24 to sleep. The rooms look super cozy and inviting.
While I was teaching, Kelli was touring and she snapped a few pictures for me to share. Of course we forgot to take a picture of me with the group..or the classroom or eating area. Those places were awesome. You’ll have to check Deb’s web site to see those pictures.
The ladies all loved working with crumbs. Some of them committed to having Deb write the anniversary date on the calendar for next year. Then they want to meet up again and see if they made any progress.
If you are looking for a place to meet up with gals to sew, stitch, knit or chat, Deb has a really nice place and her rates are SUPER reasonable.
This place really looks cozy! I had to laugh when you mentioned team yarn colors. The green and gold are our high school colors (which were selected because Green Bay won the Superbowl the year our school was founded). The purple and gold are our university colors, and black and gold are our Superbowl Champion New Orleans Saints colors. So awesome! Thanks for sharing :)
Oh, I’ve met that lady. She was a vendor at a quilt show at the Oelwein Community Center a few years ago. I went with a classmate of mine when I was home. I remember her being very nice and friendly. How fun for you to find a new shop to visit. Thanks for sharing!!!
