Visit to Madera

I had a great time visiting the guild in Madera.  Madera is a farming community off of I- 99 not to far from Fresno. I really enjoyed the Guild's Show and Tell and they were a very attentive audience!  In my free time my hostess suggested I checked out Quilter's Paradise in Old Town Clovis.  What a treat!
 This is a great Store: lots of great fabric, friendly staff, nice and spacious and it had a nice space in back for classes, always a plus in my book!   
  There were lots of Turn of the Last Century buildings with an Antique Mall on almost every corner.
This wonderful old building had been a hotel.  It has been recently renovated.  The front rooms are a great boutique and the back is a resturant all done up like a Victorian dining room! Very cute!
I would have stopped for some tea but I had to get back to Madera for the guild meeting!
cheers, Claire W.


  1. This all looks so charming. What a fun place to visit! Lucky you!

  2. Not sure my pocketbook could handle living in Clovis...too many temptations for sure. Except for the fabric part, as one must always be adding to the stash;-) A fat quarter here, 10 yards there...LOL

    Thanks for sharing.
    blessings, jill

  3. Claire, I hoep your trunk show went well! I used to visit Clovis when Rachel swam there and loved that quilt store.
