What I Found While Looking Around

I've noticed that we go through our life, doing what needs done, hurrying from here to there, and we quit looking around. But the other day as I was walking down Washington St. to the post office, for some reason, the elevators really stood out. I guess because the trees are naked? I don't know. I mean, I walk that road often and yet, there they are. The backdrop to Altamont. Huge but behind the scenes. So, today, I present the Grain Elevators!

The Quilt Top Shop

 The Quilt Top Shop is located on 113 N. Main, next to Roger's Home Appliances. Owned by Patti Myers, the business opened last year. The Quilt Top Shop features over 2000 bolts of cotton quilting fabric as well as a full line of sewing notions, books, patterns and thread. She also offers machine quilting of finished tops.

 For those wanting to expand their knowledge, classes, clubs and demonstrations are available. A full schedule can be obtained at the shop. (see previous post for this week's activities!)
