Don't miss Mary at The Wooden Thimble

Another great quilt shop in Estherville, Iowa is Mary's Wooden Thimble right on Central Avenue across from the high school - you can't miss it.  Her's is a full-service shop of fabric, patterns, threads, & tons of notions.  I even saw some of the new wire barn quilts for sale at Mary's; these add a great touch to the outside decor of a house.

Mary has lots of ideas for warm, fuzzy baby quilts.  This is the new Softee that is so cuddly.  She has kits for this quilt & look at the popcorn circles of different colors on the back - it's so sweet!
Mary must love purses, totes, & little bags because she has oodles of them displayed here.  Who wouldn't love one of these to carry all your stuff in - you know how stuff just grows & grows . . . and we have to have a place for it.  (There's one of those wire house blocks in the left lower corner.) 

There always something new hanging on the screen door at Mary's!             And a wall of brights for fun children's quilts & crafts!
And a selection of hues & tones of reproductions!       Don't miss Mary's Wooden Thimble on your way along the All-Iowa Quilt Shop Hop through Thursday - extended hours keep the shop owners open for your business!  Come up to the northwest corner of Iowa!


  1. Hi, Evonne, just a ghost from your past. It has been so long since we have talked, and I am totally amazed at all the designing you have been doing. Where have I been?

    Now, I must confess, I have spent all evening lurking on your blog and your website. Not sure if I signed (liked) your Facebook--if that is an option. I have truly enjoyed all this great reading. I spent a busy three days on the First Iowa Shop this was relaxing and pleasant...and so like you-calming!
