I took the occasion of the Mid Valley Quilt Guild Show to visit Boersma's Sewing Center located in McMinnville, Oregon. Boersma's is a little farther for me to drive than a few of the other quilts shops in my local area, but it's my absolute favorite! Upon entering, it's hard to see the store for all the fabric.
Gammill long arm machines located downstairs. I took the entry level class a while back. I was going to go further and try to learn these machines, but then I had a shoulder surgery and had to cancel. Another time, I hope.
As I said, Boersma's is absolutely my favorite quilt shop in the local area. It's a bit of a drive for me, and so I don't get there often. When I do it's a real treat. I give them five rotary cutters out of five for their top notch fabric selection, good service, good prices, and their long-arm rental and classes.
It's a can't miss shop if you find yourself in the McMinnville area.
On the way, you can visit the Evergreen Aviation Museum and make a day of it for you and your family. McMinnville is a fun town to visit with lots of great restaurants and antique shops. It's worth the drive.
