Favorite Quilt Store in Estes Park, Colorado, USA

I love traveling and one of my favorite places in the United States is Estes Park, Colorado.  I have been going for 32 years to the one of God’s most beautiful places on earth. It rates up there with my area that I live in.   With visiting my aunt and uncle and  shopping on my list of things to do while there,  I found a quilt shop that I would say is full of joy.  You are greeted with a smile and  a cup of hot tea served in a real china cup.  I had never been in a quilt store serving tea much less the employees excited about decorating the front window the next morning.  What is different here is what I was thinking as I heard them talking among themselves.  Excited to be working!!!   Then I met Sherry Strong, the owner of Cottage Bliss formerly High Country Amish Quilts www.cottageblissestes.com .  She revealed to me that this was a store with a mission from God.   The net income of the store is used to do projects to help people in need.  I got excited how God was using the marketplace to fund His Projects.

The store full of fabric, quilt kits, Amish Quilts and gifts to over flowing is a shopper’s dream.

I shared with them what I was going to do the next year in 2007 by managing Tracey Elliot-Reep from England doing a Ride Of Faith thru the Rocky Mountain’s starting on the Rio Grande River at the Mexico Border with two horses and ending on the Canada Border.  Tracey alway choses a charity for the ride and her choice of charity for the Riding By Faith in Ameria was going to be the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association www.narha.org .  As I was sharing about Tracey being a christian professional photographer and writer they invited Tracey to stop in Estes Park on her ride.  They became more than a quilt store to me the following year as a souce of information helping with the ride in the area.  I believe they were put in my path more than just buying fabric but to be an encouragement  to go about doing God projects in the world.

If you are in the area go by and enjoy a store full of joy.  Have a hot cup of tea!!!!  Earl Grey would be Tracey’s choice.  You will be blessed by this sweet group of ladies.
