Home Shopping

Now this is what I call "Home Shopping". Last weekend I was invited to an open house. The owner maximized every square inch of her space to hold over 500 bolts of fabric, a notions and pattern wall, tables filled with books, fabric bundles, a long-arm machine, custom-built cutting and ironing stations and much, much more.

It's a small shop - "so what" you say -- well, this is all contained in the basement of their home!

Colleen Plucinski and husband John are owners of Harvest House Quilting and inventors of the "Wacker". That little hammer pounds your seams into submission so that it lies perfectly flat. (And it works too.)

They vend at the national quilt shows and most of the local ones (Illinois).

I was amazed at her ingenious ways of maximizing her space! I could take a couple lessons from her.

If you would like to visit and shop, please call ahead 815-609-5831.
Harvest House Quilting, 24231 Apple Tree Lane, Plainfield, IL.
