Jaggie here! Not everyone in Texas rides horses and if that what you’re looking for when you visit our October Shop of the Month, you may find horses, but not the ones you think!
This month, we profile a long-standing friend of Veronica and Michelle, the Painted Pony n’ Quilts in LaPorte, Texas. Veronica has been visiting Painted Pony n’ Quilts, fore more than 20 years, and Michelle has tagged along on many of those trips. In fact, it’s where she got fabric for her first quilt!
The 8500+ square feet shop houses a quilter's paradise of books, notions, patterns, quilt samples, gifts, and classroom, as well as Janome sewing machines and sergers, and selected quality sewing furniture and lighting.
There are more 10,000 bolts of fabric, and they can be found in every nook and cranny in the Happy Room, Rainbow Room, Plaid Room, and Sale Room. (I don't know about you, but I want to spend the night in the Rainbow Room!) There are a variety of programs and classes to choose from at Painted Pony n’ Quilts.
Painted Pony n’ Quilts supports a number of quilt-related groups such as the "Charlie's Angels" quilting bee, a Baltimore Album bee, the Buck-A-Block program, 30's Circle of Friends, and Jo Morton's "Little Women" Club.
Although the Painted Pony n’ Quilts will not have a booth at this year’s International Quilt Festical, in Houston, you may run into staff and quilters who call the shop home!
Painted Pony n’ Quilts shop hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and closed Sunday.
