I took a quick trip west to Canmore yesterday, to do some research for an upcoming article I’m writing for Quilter’s World magazine. Even though I live only an hour away, I forget how beautiful it is. Being surrounded by mountains and walking paths and crisp, clean mountain air is truly amazing. What a pretty, bustling town!
While I was there, I paid a visit to The Sugar Pine Company, an outstanding, destination quilt shop located on 7th Avenue. I realized I hadn’t been there since they moved to their current building – so 15+ years ago! A little nutty – since it’s a fantastic shop with everything a quilter could ever desire. Literally….everything! I’m going to plan a trip out there soon with one of my quilting friends (Marilyn W.? Marilyn C? Karen? LA?)
The displays are so pretty and so creative…..the work of owner, Leah. Leah and her husband Dean work together in the shop daily.
While I was in town, I was lucky to take in the Visions Art Quilt Show.
I will be sharing photos of wonderful art quilts with you all, but you will have to wait for my magazine piece! It’s due winter of this year.
Any quilters or artists wanting to be inspired by the spectacular surroundings should take some time and visit Canmore. What’s old is all new again!
