Stepping Back In time
Yesterday I had to take my sewing machine in to get serviced and have a small issue looked at. I got out the Featherweight so I could keep working on my Blue Scrap Quilt in the mornings before my workouts.
It is a delightful drive to Hinkletown Sewing Center.
Only in Lancaster County can you find a sign like this and only in Lancaster County will some one not rip it off the pole.
It was a beautiful April day.
This is where I take my machine, to a farm. The store is in an old chicken coop. For those of you (like me) who have not been there in a while, Erv Zimmerman has done some renovations!! The back of the store is now the front of the store. It still cracks me up that you can get your machine serviced and pick up some eggs and butter to take home with you. PS He has also built an additional new house, I am thinking for one of his boys.
As I was leaving the one room school house across the street was unloading a bunch of children off a wagon drawn by 2 horses. I am thinking "field trip"?
Traffic was very slow......
I stopped at Good's on the way home for clothesline. I knew they would have it, not every store does any more. This is a destination stop for lots of tourists. There is also the very famous Shady Maple Buffet. I have never been but I have heard it is amazing.
As much as it was nice to go back in time a little today, I really do enjoy my computer, electricity and a nice hot shower! I do think it is funny the Hinkletown Sewing has a Facebook page! I am pretty sure they are Mennonite and not Amish, but still.....
