Endless Mountains Quiltworks, Tunkhannock PA

Last week, my children and I took a little road trip down south and west about 5 hours to the home of one of my sisters and her family. That's always a good time because they live a little bit more 'country' lifestyle than we do, with chickens, sheep, a horse and a dog. So there is always something to do outdoors, if not with the animals, then with her boys who are older than my children and have super cool boy toys with which wars can be fought and imaginary enemies can be slain. Such fun!

While we were there, my sister took me to a quilt shop in the nearby town of Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania. Endless Mountains Quiltworks, at first glance, is just a plain little storefront in an ordinary strip mall type of shopping plaza. See what I mean...

Endless Mountains Quiltworks, Tunkhannock PAThis area of blues was fabulous. That jacket displayed on the top shelf was made by cutting up a sweatshirt and trimming it with the most delicious blueberry fabric. The pocket is made with fabric that looks like caning and is shaped like a basket. How clever! The little blue bag hanging next to it was just darling too.


Endless Mountains Quiltworks, Tunkhannock PAThe space in this store was used so well with shelves and displays and wall units to show off so many different fabrics and samples and kits of all kinds. Behind this wall of yellows was a large area where a quilting class was being held. What a nice way to spend as afternoon!


Endless Mountains Quiltworks, Tunkhannock PADo you think that I actually found a few things to buy in here? Of course I did!

But you'll have to wait until next time to see the goodies I brought home from this shop. If you're ever in the area of northeastern Pennsylvania, you simply must check out Endless Mountains Quiltworks. You won't be disappointed!

Happy Stitching!

  • Did somebody say Jumbo Ric Rac? Wonder how long it would take me to get there if I jumped in the car now? I'd be there when the doors opened in the morning. :o)
