“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” – Mother Theresa
I think that describes “quilting” and “quilters.” A quilter is someone who takes small pieces and joins them piece by piece to create a work of art.
New Athens Quilt Shop
As we quilters know it is hard to be a quilter without a quilt shop. I would like to give a special thanks to four lovely ladies (3 Hens & A Chick I am not asking which one is the “chick”) who have joined together to open a quilt stop in our community.
3 Hens & A Chick opens this weekend – Saturday morning – 10:00 till 2:00. They are located at 1114 US Hwy 31 South Suite B in Athens, Alabama 35611. If you need directions give them a call 256.771.2040.
I stopped by for a preview today and have to admit I wish I didn’t have to wait till Saturday to purchase some fabric I just have to put in my collection. Did I say collection? If you aren’t a quilter you may wonder what on earth is she talking about. Well, as all quilters know we never have enough material in our “stash.” Ladies let me tell you those “chicks” have ordered some great fabric – something for everyone.
Oh, I almost forget this is a large room reserved and equipped for quilt classes. There are plenty of tables, ironing boards and cutting areas.
They also stock a selection of patterns, notions and on and on. One of the “Hens” told me they will have “fat quarters” available for almost every bolt of fabric in the shop. They are busy cutting them right now.
Let me introduce the owners:
These ladies are excited and even a little tired as they get ready to open and serve the North Alabama Quilting Community…
Their grand opening will be on March 10th with plenty of prizes and refreshments.
