Check out the parking lot

A couple of months ago I met up with my BFF while she was visiting in Florida.  On my way down to meet her, I visited a quaint little shop in Bradenton.



Their selection is not as large as it used to be, and they are leaning more towards modern fabrics.  But what makes this shop unique is this.


There's always a group of Mennonite ladies hand quilting.  And this is their mode of transportation.........


Happy Quilting!

I, too, have visited this quilt shop and it was so neat getting to watch these women hand quilt. I could have watched them for hours!!

My computer was hesitating showing me the last picture and I have to say I was sure it would be of horses and buggies, but I wasn't sure if they would travel that way in Florida. I was born in Iowa and my relatives are all Mennonite with some Amish.

Lovely to hear from you, Jocelyn!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bicycles. :) Those are the kind I would need as I can't ride a bike.

Alma Sue's is actually in Sarasota! I love that store and visit it when I go visit my sister in Bradenton. :)
