Earlier this month my husband and I took a roadtrip down to Sarasota for some Amish food and shopping. I saw an article in Quilt Sampler magazine about a shop called The Cotton Patch that had in-house Basset Hounds and had to go!! (This also works as a great bribery tactic to get my husband to go with me – he wants to pet anything cute and furry.)
It’s a great shop with friendly staff, a good selection of fabric and a nice size classroom. They also sell Pfaff, Juki and Bernina machines! I loved looking at the Juki longarm. Here are a few photos from my visit:
Fred is the shops newest basset hound – recently adopted from a rescue. He is 9 months old and super friendly! He was very excited to see us. The other bassets didn’t feel like getting up from their naps to say hello so they continued sleeping in the back room. Who can blame them? If you don’t see the Bassets when you walk in you can ask if they can come out to say hello to you. That’s what we did!
