There are no words to adequately describe the quilt shop Obie's in Goodville, PA, except maybe a hoarder's dream? When up in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, area with my sewing sisters yesterday, no road trip is complete without a stop at Obie's. You may have to squeeze through the aisles and watch the floorboards on the second floor so you don't "fall into the first floor", but that is really the "fun" of it all. It is chock full of thousands of bolts of fabric (and hand-made items by the owner, Nan, and quilts made by folks from the surrounding area), in a small country store that was built in the 1850's. And believe it or not, we all seemed to "find" fabrics that certainly appealed to us to purchase in all the chaos surrounding the bolts of fabric.
BSoleille! The bright side of Obie's because there is nothing else quite like it anywhere...
