Magical Quilt Shop Tour #4

24 06 2009

Today I visited a wonderfully surprising and fun quilt shop on Hwy. 101 in Florence, OR> The shop is called Wenz-Daze Quilter’s Emporium. Don’t let the industrial look of the outside fool you…this is a shop that is quite large and has several wonderful displays and beautiful fabrics. The shop is also a dealer for the HQ 16.

Among the many lovely displays in this shop is one of Asian Fabrics. Apparently, the husband of the shop owner is quite talented in the quilt pattern department (he has a background in automotive repair) and has created an awesome pattern that I think quilters would really enjoy using. There is also a lovely area of hand painted fabic scenes of the local lighthouses as well as a section of baby quilts and ways to utilize panels.

If you have the opportunity to visit Florence, treat yourself to this quilt shop…you won’t be disappointed.

Joy of Quilting is a darling little quilt shop in the quaint seaside town of Florence, OR. The shop is light and bright and the feeling is “happy” when you walk in. There are displays of black and white quilts as well as quilts displaying the various lighthouses along the coast of Oregon. I loved their brights and there were many displays of the various panels that they carry in the store.

If you come to Florence, this shop is located on Hwy 101 before 42nd street on the right if you are coming north on the highway.
