Sleepy Hollow Quilts in Marsing, Idaho was open today! ( written yesterday, the day before Thanksgving)
We were driving down to the Snake river canyon for scenery but had to stop in!
Only open for a couple of months so far, the shop was charming! The space has been refitted by the owner's father who put in a wonderful natural wood ceiling and built many shelf units!
Near the front window was an antique treadle sewing machine once owned by her great grandmother.
A Wheeler Wilson # 8 from the 1800's,
These are photos of that model.....back later with those from the quilt shop!
I found a quilt book which had piqued my interest earlier...."The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt". So I now own this one, which has wonderful letters from farm wives in 1922!
Lots of patterns for 6" blocks! Happy hours for me when we get home!
AND, we did make it to the Snake river canyon......here is Mr. P!
Beautiful, though hazy! Misty mountains in the distance!
