My sisters and I recently spent a weekend in the Cedarburg WI area. Knowing that was our plan, of course this meant I had to take them to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts – a museum not to miss. They have exhibits that change on a regular basis, so check their website before you head out.
The featured exhibit at the time we visited (last weekend in July) was Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s “Traditions Made Modern: Full Circle – Sketches From Life — 12 Double Wedding Rings.”
My visits to quilt shops in the Cedarburg area were restrained by being the only quilter among my sisters (need to get another one in the family) so I was able to visit only one: Ye Olde Schoolhouse. I liked the shop and they have a friendly staff. Was so busy looking around I forgot to take some pictures. But you can see more photos on their website.
While we only stopped at one quilt shop, we were able to visit a number of other gift and antique shops in the village as well as having lunch and dinner at some of the nicer restaurants in town.
On our way home from our weekend in Cedarburg, we stopped in a garden center near Colgate, Wisconsin that has been on my list of places to visit for some time: Monches Farm Nursery & Garden Center. Ideally I’d like to be there in the spring so I can get some good quality bedding plants for my flower and vegetable gardens. But now I know where they are located when I am on the hunt for perennials.
