FYI-Delaware Avenue is being resurfaced
Penn DOT is resurfacing Delaware Ave from Mauch Chunk Road to Rt. 248. Since last Thursday, no additional work has been done in front of the shop and parking has not been restricted. Unfortunately, Penn DOT is not providing shop owners with a work schedule. So, if walking from a side street is a problem for you, I suggest calling the shop the day you are planning to visit and I can give you a status report.

Quilters Trek is a new color-guided shopping adventure for quilters! The color theme this year is True Blue. This means the participating shops will be offering blocks made with predominantly blue fabric. This allows quilters to create quilts that are more pleasing and cohesive.
Each shop will create four 9" blocks that can be arrange in a row or as an 18" square.
Shops will have kits for sale, but the block pattern is free. If you cannot travel to a participating shop to purchase a kit, kits with the pattern will be sold by phone order and shipped to you.The free "stand alone" pattern will still be available in-store ONLY during the event.
The Quilted Crow's blocks arranged into an 18" square.
Quilters must complete a quilt (quilted, bound, labeled) using 32 nine-inch block designs from at least 8 participating shops, which means 4 blocks from each shop.
Each shop will offer a prize of 15 fat quarters plus a bonus prize if the quilt includes the shop’s blocks to 2 different quilters!
