Went to this GREAT quilt shop in Couer d'Alene this weekend: Bear Paw Quilts http://bearpawquilting.danemcoweb.com/.
This shop was a featured Top 10 quilt shop in American Patchwork & Quilting in 2010 and that is well-deserved. The shop is well-lit, has a great fabric variety, as well as wool and needlework, and the staff is extremely friendly. If you are ever in the area, I recommend it as a MUST SEE!
I was invited by Traci Marvel to go along to Idaho to participate in a "Meet & Greet" and lecture she was doing at the shop for Bigfork Bay Cotton Company. Traci is so engaging and creative that she draws people in. You never meet a stranger when you're with Traci :).
We had a full house for the lecture. A good time was had by all, especially me. Thanks, Traci, for inviting me to participate in your world.
