If you ever visit Eastern Montana...

you must stop at these two fabric shops that we visited yesterday.  Seven of our guild members jumped in my Suburban and headed south on a two hour drive to a beautiful shop just north of Sidney, Montana called Quilts and More.  We first visited this store a year ago.  The owner, Nancy had turned the attached garage of their home into a quilt store and had added on twice (if I remember right) to her garage ending up with a three room quilt store complete with a classroom and two long arm quilting machines.  Last June a fire took Nancy's home and most of the quilt store and in the past year, she has rebuilt a brand new beautiful home and most of her store.  That's a load on her shoulders!  Here's what you see when you walk in Quilt's and More's front door...

It's bright and airy with room to move and stand back and take it all in.  The store is immaculate and very well laid out for browsing. I am guessing that the door on the right of this photo leads to Nancy's home.  If you look closely you can see the roof in the window above.   Here is a picture of the same room from the other angle.
This was once a garage!!!
And the last photo of this room shows Nancy at the counter and the front door on the far side of her.

Off of this main room there are two more rooms.  A classroom that I didn't get a photo of and this room filled with more fabric and two long arm Gammills.
See what I mean about immaculate.



Thanks Nancy and Vonnie and we'll be back soon.

On a very sad note about our trip, we visited Sidney on the day that Sherry Arnold was laid to rest.  Our guild sends our sympathies to the Arnold family.
Tomorrow I will showcase The Enchanted Room in Glendive.
