ScooterBob Meets Local Celebrity

Some of you may roll your eyes at this post, but I'm supposed to show ScooterBob around just like I would have done with Bob, right? That's what I have been doing. LOL.

Yesterday, I took him along to meet one of Warrenton's local celebrities.

Kelly Ann Richardson and her husband, Andrew, own Kelly Ann's Quilting. They've been in business for 10 years and, in 2015, were featured in Quilt Sampler Magazine.

Now, if you are not into quilting, which I suspect many of you are NOT, being featured in Quilt Sampler is a HUGE deal. Really. Kelly Ann has a lot to be proud of.

The shop is in an old carriage house.
The shop is actually much bigger than it looks from the outside, and it's well-stocked with everything one needs to make a quilt. It's staffed by some pretty awesome people, too. (That's not a very flattering picture. It's actually much cuter in person.)

ScooterBob is very special.
I am proud to call Kelly Ann a friend. Andrew, too. Kelly Ann has been following along on Instagram and my blog as I traipse around with ScooterBob in tow, photographing him in various locations, so she was quite tickled to actually meet him.

And more than happy to pose for this picture. :-)
Kelly Ann Richardson, Proprietor
Be patient folks. I hope to get out on the road with ScooterBob soon. If only I didn't have to work for a living!

  2. Quilting is a wonderful combination of art and purpose. And I do not know anything about it. But I know I want one.

    It doesn't seem to be very popular in Germany, though.

    1. Sonja, I've actually wondered if it's an American thing. Not that it was invented here, but most Europeans I mention quilting to don't seem very impressed. I'll have to start making inquiries.

  3. Bob always seemed to appreciate people with a talent for crafting. I think he'd be happy to see the quilt shop.

    1. Brandy, I don't think I knew that. πŸ˜„

      Perhaps I should quilt something for ScooterBob while he's here.

  4. I love this, because ScooterBob is being a part of the fabric of your multi patterned life, its not all just about riding.

    1. Part of the fabric of my multi-patterned life? That's priceless, and true. πŸ˜„

  5. Oooh... a quilted travelling bag for Scooterbob???

    Nah! Just kidding!

    I'm sure we have quilting here, but it's certainly rare-ish. By that I mean I've never met a quilter.

    1. A quilted bag is a bit too ambitious. I'm thinking something small to go in the bling collection. :-)

      By the way, my Hubby, a woodworker by hobby, is planning on trying to make a few repairs to ScooterBob before we send him to his next destination in a couple of weeks.

  6. And here I thought that you were the local celebrity. Blogger extraordinaire. ;-)

    Cool shop! There are several quilting shops around here. A very popular hobby and they have most of a building at the fair.

  7. I'm only a semi-celebrity in these parts, Richard. :-)

    I can imagine quilting is a great hobby for Alaskans what with your long, cold winter nights. :-)
