OK...I swear we live parallel lives. We have a primitive quilt shop in our area called The Little Red Hen. I think we are soul sisters!!


What a cute shop! So nice that she will do a class just for you. That is how you know you have found a GOOD quilt store.

Wow! Those hexies are tiny!!!

I'm a bipolar quilter too. I love both modern and traditional. I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

Wow! What a fantastic post! Thanks for sharing it. Nancy thinks it is wonderful and so do I! And thanks for sharing our shop...and my hexies :D


The Hen House is neat. I have stopped there on the way back from Lansing, also. I agree, the staff is always super nice!

Looking at all their ideas in the store has always pulled me to try wool work...one of these days I will!


What a wonderful quilt shop! The paper piecing project is gorgeous.
You sound like me with the iphone, GPS and Diet Coke :) And I must be a bipolar quilter too!

What a great find! You seem like kindred spirits. You may like my post on teaching children to sew:

What a lovely shop - and I so appreciate your post about it. I'll check out the website later. I didn't think I would EVER like the darks of CW quilts but somehow they have sneaked in and I like them now. I would love to do the penny quilt - so cute and so tiny. I used to do rug hooking, I'm sure your cardinal will be fun.


There's nothing wrong with being a bipolar quilter -- I think I'm a decapolar quilter! I like everything and want to try it all. What a neat shop! Thanks for the tour.


Love that place!!! I'm so glad you made it there!!!!


Sounds like you had a really great time...and so close to find it so quickly! I have to admit that the dark colors wouldn't have floated my boat..I'm just a bright modern colors kind of quilter. But the small pieced quilt you pictured is amazing!

Hope you'll enjoy your free time after school ends for the summer. I bet you have your list of "Wanna-Dos" all made up! :)

What a great shop, and thanks for this cool post with pictures of all the vignettes! I wish I could pop in myself. I'm actually more like Sybil with my quilting tastes...I have about 27 distinct personalities.


What a wonderful post about a great shop...has me wanting to shop there!


I am so glad you've done a post about this magnificent shop! My daughter said when I took her there that she could have taken her shoes off and stayed all day...it is that homey. You took some great pictures!!


Glad you got to go there. I love visiting other shops. I bet you had a great time. I enjoyed seeing all the pictures because it's been a while since I've been there.


What a great shop. I'm glad I don't live close to it :-). It's great that it also has basket weaving supplies! Many, many years ago I did basket weaving and still have several of my baskets sitting around the house.

The Hen House is the most wonderful shop, I agree!

As I am now living in New Hampshire, I don't get to visit with Nancy anymore and I really miss the shop and her.

A really nice review of her shop.

Love this wonderful shop and Nancy and the gals are great!!! Onnie


I went there last year and plan to go back this year on my way to AQS show. Nancy is fabulous and the feeling in the shop is wonderful. She has all those hard to find fabs and notions that no one else carries anymore. Probably a good thing she is so far away...

You will also choose the most appropriate fabrics and safest designs. You should provide your child with the right books or arts and crafts instructions that will help him or her get started with new projects. An epitome of such art can also be seen in the pilgrimage places of India.
