A trip to the Manchester Airport to pick up company last week meant Elizabeth and her mom pulled out the Row by Row Map to see if there were shops at which to stop along the way. We already knew that we first wanted to go to “Artisans on the Green”, a yearly art show in Sandwich, NH, so started looking at shops to visit from that as our starting point. After consulting both the map and the rows on the state Facebook page, we decided to stop in Boscawen New Hampshire at Bittersweet Fabric Shop. This was a charming store in a small building tucked amongst quaint houses.
It was fun to recognize some of the same
machines we have used through the years.
A Singer Featherweight, a Wilcox and Gibbs, and another old Singer were
all there plus many more. This is the first year this store participated in the Row by
Row and they made up for last year by having two rows this year. One was horizontal and Barbara bought that
one, thinking it will blend nicely with some of the other fish rows she has
bought this year. The other row is
vertical and is a silhouette of a boy fishing.
This is the row, Elizabeth chose to buy.
Vermont Quilt Show
with a brand new sewing machine. And
what a clever license plate design.
They have an
amazing collection of embroidery threads and a wonderful selection of batik
fabrics and also sell Janome and Necchi Machines. Located right off Interstate 93 near Concord
NH, be sure to stop if you are in the area.
