Long-distance Tip

Scrappy Shack
Lingle, WY
July 23, 2015

Tamknots (a former Wyomingite) who now lives in North Carolina somehow discovered that a new quilt shop, the Scrappy Shack, had opened a couple of weeks ago in the tiny town of Lingle in southeast Wyoming.

Since I was driving to Nebraska last week for my great-niece's wedding and would be going through Lingle, I decided to check out the new shop.

While it doesn't have a huge inventory of fabric, what it had on display was very nice and the prices were very reasonable.

I'm sure more inventory will be added as quilters discover the Scrappy Shack.

The shop owner was not there the day I stopped, but her mother-in-law said she would be delighted to hear that someone in North Carolina had told me about the shop.

I purchased some Kansas Troubles fabric (mostly neutrals) so I can finish a current project, a panel for a Quilt of Valor, and some notions. See that pile on the corner near the woman's elbow? That yardage came home with me.

Thanks, Tammy for your "long-distance" quilt shop tip.


  1. Ha, I love it! You know you can take the girl out of Wyoming, but you cannot take Wyoming out of the girl (or boy, my hubby is from Wyo too!) I read the Torrington Telegram online faithfully, and they did a write-up about this new shop. Yaaayy for our blogs, it's the best way to share great information! xo Tammy

  2. What a beautiful example of the power of the internet and, more specifically, we who write blogs for the fun of it. That's a mighty impressive pile of fabrics there, Miss Nancy. But I can't admit to how much I've bought this month. At least not until Sunday. Yikes is all I can say.

  3. A shop in Lingle?? Wowza. It looks very nice. Glad you found some fabrics that will fill in the gaps of what you "need." Hee, hee. Fabric, like yarn, finds it's way to the counter and cash register!!

  4. Networking amongst the crafty is the BEST for new places. Happy you got a fabric fix in .

  5. I hope they do well, small business have to struggle so much especially in small towns:)

  6. Golly, wish I could by piles of fabric like that

  7. Fabric haul!!! What a great little shop. I wish they had one just like it near me! I made a baby quilt for our new great granddaughter last year and since it was my first try at quilting I didn't think it was terrific! Someone who was at the shower, however, called me last night and asked if I would make one for her new granddaughter. I was flattered and amazed! Of course I told her yes. I need all the practice I can get!

  8. I think it's always fun to explore a new quilt shop or a new restaurant.

  9. I'll have to check and see if this would be on our route west to Spokane Wa. Looks like a nice shop to stop at.

  10. Look like a lovely shop!

    We had one open recently in our town -- Wren's Nest. You should stop on by and check it out. ;-)
