Southern Charm- Quilt Shop Fun

I just love visiting North Carolina in April.  At home, in Western New York, the tulips are struggling to come up but here the Azaleas are already in bloom.

I took a break this week from cuddling with my new twin grandchildren and visited the Lone Star Mercantile on Highway 401 in Fuquay-Varina (near Raleigh).

I have visited this shop before and was impressed with the selection of quilting, punchneedle, stitchery, and rug hooking supplies.  They also have a really nice selection of traditional quilting fabrics.  Early American antiques and reproductions create an interesting decor and offer shoppers more goodies for purchase.

You may remember from past posts that I am a lover of wool and wool applique projects.  The Lone Star Mercantile offers a lovely selection of wool and patterns for wool.

In addition, there are pretty embroidery patterns and an entire wall of hand over dyed floss.

These beautiful variegated fibers had me drooling.  Here are a few that I just had to have..

I loved the selection of patterns and books.

The beautiful displays and samples are inspiring and the staff is attentive and helpful.

So...if you are in the Raleigh area, you will want to visit this lovely shop.  Check them out online at  You will love it!
