Calico Creations Mt. Vernon Washington

On the recommendation of our friends in Gig Harbor we took the L'il Buffalo on the ferry.  While waiting in line to board a car drove up...must be a regular traveler because their dog knew that the person in the booth had treats!!!  We did not let Enzo know that there were dog treats being passed out...

When I Googled quilt shops along the way  I found Calico Creations in Mt. Vernon and I was so taken by the shops Row by Row.  It reminded me of Laura Heine and I knew I was going to make a stop!  When I checked out the sewing group in the space next door I met a Woolie reader :)  Such a treat for me!

Chris & her daughter Becky...and 
yes, that is Becky's quilt that she was working on!!!
Thanks for reading Chris!

Calico Creations is filled...and I mean filled with choices.  In fact it has about outgrown it space...and the space is large!!! LOL

Calico Creations doesn't have an online web shop but if you see anything in the slide show give them a call.  I had to make 2 slide shows today because the Calico Creations has the largest display of Laura Heine quilts.  I love these quilts!  Click on the individual photos and it will enlarge!

  1. I'm glad you decided to go to this shop, I loved their Laura Heineken quilts and was blown away by their selection of Kaffe Fasset fabrics!

    I may have to make another trip soon, hope they participate in the Wooly Block in October!

  2. I love ferries and hoping to go over to the islands when Bill gets some time off. I want to take the car since I think that would be easier on Bean. Love the photos that Sandi got of Enzo.


  3. This is a wonderful shop. I don't get up there often enough but it never disappoints.
