Georgia Adventure Part Two “A Scarlet Thread”

I love the name of this quilt shop. A Scarlet Thread – doesn’t that sound wonderful? The shop is in McDonough, Georgia. (Atlanta)

The beautiful lady with me is Karen Taylor, she is the owner of the shop. Karen is truly a southern lady with a passion for quilting and her shop shows it.
IMG_0123I had been looking for a kit to make this tuffet pincushion to go with my Tuffet from my class at Creations in Kerrville, Texas. Isn’t it the cutest thing??? I can’t wait to make mine.

IMG_0139They had kits and samples everywhere. I love these bags.IMG_0138Fabulous quilts are hanging in the front of their classroom area. The shop is in the middle of a big remodel.

This is double gauze fabric for making swaddling blankets for new babies. It is so sweet.IMG_0129 Little stuffed animal samples were watching us.IMG_0128I also got to talk with Melisa Morrison. Melisa is the new “events and education manager” for the shop. Fun things are going to be happening at the shop!!
