Clear Lake Trunk show and other half of my All Iowa Shop Hop

Here's the trunk show I  did in Clear Lake.  Decorating Seasonally with Quilts is what I call this presentation.  Thanks ladies for having me come speak!

On the way home we traveled a different route than we did on the way up so we could hit more quilt shops.  I used the All Iowa Shop Hop map to plan our route.  The picture below is at Country Threads just outside of Garner. 

 Next stop was Seams to Me, in Algona and then on to the Grotto below in West Bend.

 Below is a little peek at Quilting on Main at Pocohontas.
 Next stop, Towne Square Quilt Shoppe in Lake City.
 In between the quilt shops we stopped at this fun garden center in Sac county. 
 Below was our last stop of the day  at The Yarn Basket and Quilt Shop in Carroll. 
Check out all these shops and more at the All Iowa Shop Hop, June 1-14.  I hope lots of you can go on the shop hop, it should be lots of fun!  I will be having an outdoor and indoor quilt show...and garden show, depending on the weather!  I still have lots of spots left to stay the night while you're on the shop hop, for just $25 a night, so take my number with you and give me a call while you're on the road, if you need a place to stay while you're on the hop.  I am about half-way between the Creston and Clarinda shops.  Please take the time to come on down to Southwest Iowa... The Quilt Coop,  down in the country, south of Clarinda, is definitely worth the trip.  It has been nominated as one of the 10 best shops in the country, so if you haven't been there, make sure and check it out!


  1. Looks like you had a fun trunk show. And wow, you sure got around to a lot of quilt shops! Most of these I've never been to with the exception of Country Threads. I'd definitely love to check them out. One day, I almost went to The Quilt Coop. I'd heard it had a lot of 1800s repro prints. Thanks for sharing your photos.

  2. What wonderful shops! How cool that the garden center decided to get in on the quilting fun too! (That is one smart manager!)
