Friday Shop Hop - Plaistow, NH

I recently visited The Sewing Basket which opened this past July at 86 Main Street in Plaistow, NH. How could I have missed that?

If you happen to be in Southern NH (maybe doing a little leaf peeping?), don't miss this great little quilt shop! Patty, the owner, has a delightful collection of fabrics, gifts and sewing notions all tucked into a charming Victorian.
Are you ready for the tour? When you enter The Sewing Basket, you will find an entryway filled with seasonal gift items.

The front window, as you can see at left, is filled with pretty batiks.

There are vignettes of fabric, wreaths, quilts all around you, yet the shop does not feel crowded. The fabric collection is a nice mix of seasonal fabrics and traditional to modern fabrics. The colors are bright and cheerful.
For those not inclined to sew, there are aprons, doll clothes and other handmade crafts for purchase.
If you'd like to spend a pleasant morning shopping for fabric, head for The Sewing Basket. Say hello to Patty!
Keep quilting! -Kris
P.S. The center of Plaistow is very pretty this time of year; check out the clock tower on the town hall!
