Chesnut Bay Quilting and Crafts

After making the move from eastern Long Island, quilter and horsewoman Patty Cline and her family settled in the beautiful Finger Lakes area of upstate New York. There's lots of space for horses up there, and lots of room for Patty to set up her long-arm quilting machine. A quilting and craft shop was a natural progression for her, and this weekend marks the opening of her new shop, Chestnut Bay Quilting and Crafts.

Chestnut Bay is housed in a beautiful stone home built in the late 1800s by a doctor who lived in the main part of the house and used part of the downstairs as his office. Here are some interior shots from a couple of months ago -- Patty was still setting up, but you can see what a neat space she has.

Patty very kindly asked if I wanted to send her some rugs to sell, so if you stop by you'll see a few of my things. My sister Barb's whimsical creations will also be available at the shop, along with lots of other stuff made by lots of talented people.

If you are in the Finger Lakes area, stop by and see Patty and tell her Sarah sent you! If gas prices come down a bit, I'm hoping to get up there myself. (It's a 7 hour drive from Greenport!)

Please tell Patsy I'd love to visit her beautiful quilt shop and chat with her about horses and quilts. How fortunate you are to live near such a great quilt store.
