JJ Stitches....

I’m home from Madison…. I had a class at the University of Madison in Contract Negotiations. The basic premise of the class was ‘be a tough negotiator..Just be nice…’


No negotiating, No persuading needed. You will positively love this quilt shop in Sun Prairie Wisconsin.

“Can I take a couple of photos of your shop…I promise to only write good things??”
“Sure—take as many as you want..”

I’m quite certain if I get to go to heaven one day---this is what it will look like. Coupled with the “angels” behind the counter, it made the 4 and 1/2 hour drive home worth it. If the pictures are blurry, it’s only because I was just having so much fun ‘clicking’ away… If there’s something you are interested in Just give them a call.. you can even email them one of the photos. They have a website.

The stenciling on the wall said:' Once upon a time there was enough time..."
I loved how the wool pieces were all in wooden boxes.


There were little signs peppered through the shop.



I purchased the pattern and kit for this one.  It spoke to me.  If you are a quilter you understand.

I'll share more tomorrow....Both pups went to the Doggie Hotel so I had to bathe them when I got home from work today. They are both sacked out.  I've got unpacking to do.  I have been pulling winter clothes out a piece at a time.  It's about time to put the summer things away and pull out the woolen sweaters.

Quilt some tonight....

I need no convincing about looking like a good quilt shop. I like the pink and brown quilt with all the little triangles that is in the second photo. Well, I like several of the quilts. The pink and brown one looks like me, though.

This looks like a fantastic quilt shop. These pictures make me want to pack up the car and head over to Wisconsin. Pure love.

Your kit you purchased spoke to me as well. Good choice. I just love that one. But then again it was hard to dislike anything in these pictures.

Thanks for sharing

What a super photo journey I just went on...thank you for sharing. Loved them all but the red/white hunter's star really sent me spinning. AND...I saw that one on another blog just a few days ago. I think one might be in my future!

I've been to that store once and it wasn't long enough. Heading there next week when I head down to Madison to see my brother. Told him that I NEED to go to JJ Stitches - not being a quilter he didn't totally get it - but said no problem. Your pictures have wet my appetite. Thanks for the tour - love your purchase :)

JJ Stitches is one of my favorite shops, even though I haven't been in a few years. I used to travel to a client in Madison and tried to go every trip. They stopped having us do as much work for them and I really miss my JJ Stitches fix.

Now that is a quilt shop I could spend hours in just so I wouldn't miss a thing.
