The Gathering Place was the second store I visited during my trip to Idaho last weekend. This store is located in Rupert, about 45 miles east of Twin Falls.
It occupies an impressive 10,500 sq ft of space in a historic building located in the center of the town. With over 10,000 bolts of fabrics, lots of books, patterns, and samples, one can easily spend an entire afternoon browsing!
All that real estate allows them to be very creative with the decor. It is no wonder that The Gathering Place has been featured in Better Homes & Garden Quilt Sampler Magazine and McCall’s America Quilts Hometown Favorites.
This part of the store is dedicated to modern quilting, with bold fabrics and samples to match.
Oodles of fabrics… I did not leave the store until it was time for them to close! They also provide long-arm quilting for their customers.
In order to keep peace in my family, I will refrain from posting a picture of the fabrics I purchased at this store!
So, as you can see, Idaho shouldn’t necessarily be famous just for its potatoes!
