Visiting Mountain Stitches by Susan in Gatlinburg

Yesterday we drove south from our cabin into Gatlinburg, TN, so that I could check out Mountain Stitches by Susan quilt shop.  This was my first visit there, and I love their selection of reproduction fabrics.  Besides the shelves being full, there are lots of fat quarters and fat eights to choose from.



The store is part of the Arts and Crafts Community in the area and is located in the Morning Mist Village on Glade Road.  Glades Road is off of  Tennessee-71/US 321.  



Here is what the building looks like from the outside.  You know you are in the right place when you see the quilt block in the window!  Right behind that colorful umbrella, there is an old fashioned soda fountain.  Be sure to stop in there and have a scoop of their ice cream.  I had a scoop of Blueberry Pie Crumble, and it was just wonderful!
 

When you see this sign "Great Smoky Mountain Arts and Crafts Community" on Tennessee-71/US 321, turn.  This is Glades Road.  There is a sign overhead, but there are so many other things to see that it is easily missed (or at least we missed it).  There is only one way to turn onto Glades Road.



There are so many places like you see in the photo below with "stuff" to look at, and that is probably part of the reason I missed the Glades Road sign.   If you can zoom in on the photo, you can see the photo better.  My husband doesn't like to look at "stuff" so the photo was taken while going around 50 mph, but you get the idea.



As you can see by the fabric, the trip was well worth it.  If you are ever in the area, stop by and check out Mountain Stitches by Susan.



Their web site is mountainstitchesbysusan.com 
They also have a blog here: mountainstitchesbysusan.com/blog/, and they can be "Liked" on Facebook under Mountain Stitches.  Here is all the information you will need to find them if you are ever in the area.  
 
 On the way back north, there was a tunnel.  


Yes, I'm easily amused and love taking photos.    
 
We went on into Sevierville, TN, to visit a couple more quilt shops there.  I found this quilt hanging on the wall of the Court House there.
 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
