Snow Country Quilter’s Guild

I had an opportunity to spend two days with a GREAT bunch of quilters near Utica, NY.  The Snow Country Quilter’s!  They were loads of fun and fantastic quilter’s too!  On Friday, they treated me to dinner at a really fun diner, The Soda Fountain!  Like a local Johnny Rockets! Loved the music! 🙂

That evening, I stayed in the Sugarbush Bed and Breakfast!  I LOVED this place and didn’t ever want to leave!  It was a fabulous old country estate, built in the early 1800’s.  Beautiful gardens and grounds, guest rooms that are soooooo comfortable, a peaceful verandah off the back, and a hostess that couldn’t do enough for me!  From afternoon tea, to the hearty breakfast, I was totally pampered!  If you ever decide to visit that part of New York, make sure you schedule a few nights with Bill & Molly.  Address is 8451 Old Poland Road, Barneveld, NY 13304, website is  Some attractions nearby are, Glimmerglass Opera House, Farmer’s Museum, Utica Zoo, Baseball Hall of Fame, Canastota Canal Town Museum, Erie Canal Bike/tow path, and the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, just to name a few! 

So, on to Saturday where the quilters and I got to work!  They chose the three individual hangings from my “Up North” series, “Deer Island”, “Lakeside Retreat” and “Chick & Dee”.  And all three were well represented that day.  Take a look, WOW! they really kept going, as you can see with the almost finished quilts!  Great job Snow Country Quilters!  I hope to get out their way again sometime and hang out with these fun gals!
